John Deere 560M Round Baler for Sale Lease from Cross Implement a John Deere Dealer in Minier Illinois, Serving the Midwest region from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana & Missouri, Michigan & Wisconsin
The John Deere 560M Round Baler will be offered in dry hay, silage, and precutter configurations. The 560M Round Baler produces bales 1.5-m (5-ft) wide and up to 1.8-m (6-ft) tall with a maximum dry and wet weight of 998 kg (2200 lb). The bale diameter and density can be adjusted to meet feeding and handling requirements.
The BaleTrak™ Pro monitor-controller is included in base equipment. Adjustments to the bale size, twine spacing, end wraps, number of surface wraps, and many other features can be performed from the comfort of the operator's station.
A net-only 560M Round Baler is available for producers who prefer 100 percent net-wrapped bales for their operation. Twine components cannot be added later.
On 5x6 balers, a minimum of a 55.9-kW (75-hp) power take-off (PTO) horsepower tractor with proper ballast is required for dry hay and silage configurations and a minimum of 63.4 PTO kW (85 PTO hp) for the precutter configurations.
John Deere 560M Round Baler Comparison of twine, net wrap, and B-Wrap® system
Below is a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages between twine, net wrap, and B-Wrap that will help find the option that best suits producers’ needs. The three sections below contain material features and suggestions on when to use each material type.
One option to hold bales together is twine, which can be made out of a sisal or plastic material. The cost and the time taken to apply the twine can vary as the operator chooses the twine spacing on the bale. Twine is the slowest option to apply and takes anywhere between 45 and 60 seconds.
Twine bales have less weather protection than other options. For maximum weather protection, it is recommended to store twine bales indoors. Storing twine bales outside can cause a loss of up to one-third of the bale. All types of twine are readily available in the market.
John Deere 560M Round Baler Highlights
Readily available in market (both plastic and sisal)
Sisal – degrades off bale on own, a positive or negative depending on situation
Plastic – holds bale together well, but can be difficult to remove in icy weather
Slowest option to apply
Provides minimal protection from weather
Takes about 20 revolutions to wrap, which can cause leaf loss
Potential to lose bale shape during storage, causing increased spoilage
Twine can slide off ends of poorly-shaped bale
Twine bales should be handled/shipped minimally
When to use
Older balers that do not have a net wrap option
Small number of bales produced yearly
Operator with indoor storage
John Deere Net wrap
Tama® USA (John Deere’s partner for bale wrapping products) uses raw materials with its exclusive technology to manufacture net wrap for John Deere. To use net wrap, an operator must install the net-wrap option for the baler. The cost depends on the amount of wraps per bale.
Of all options, net wrap applies the quickest to a bale, taking 3 seconds for each wrap. John Deere offers two types of net wrap — CoverEdge™ and Edge-to-Edge — both patented and exclusive to John Deere. Edge-to-Edge net wrap covers the entire width of the bale, while CoverEdge wraps the ends of the bale.
The ZEBRA® system is another net wrap feature that allows an operator to correctly position the roll into the baler based on its striped colors. Net wrap also has a red stripe on the last 73.2 m (240 ft) of the roll to indicate the end to the operator. The red stripe reflects in the dark for night baling.
John Deere Net wrap is an excellent option for operators without a barn to store hay. Although net wrap stored outdoors will keep higher quality hay than twine bales, it can still lose roughly 50.8 mm (2–in.) of the bale from the weather. Ground moisture can cause the bale to lose a section of material at the bottom. To prevent this loss, an operator can apply material to cover the ground below the bales.

Operator looking for increased weatherability
John Deere B-Wrap
B-Wrap protects the bale with a patented material that sheds water and has microscopic pores that allow water vapor to escape. This design allows B-Wrap bales to be stored outdoors but maintains high quality as if stored indoors.
The operator’s baler must have a slip clutch alert, B-Wrap kit, and a net wrap option installed to use B-Wrap. One portion of B-Wrap goes on each bale no matter the type of crop and is equivalent to applying four wraps of net wrap.
Regardless of the diameter, the baler applies the same amount of B-Wrap to the bale. It is recommended to produce 1524- to 1676-mm (60- to 66-in.) diameter bales. Producing a bale less than 1676 mm (66 in.) will better protect the bale because the overlap of the black material increases. Larger bales risk having no overlap in the material.
Due to the portion length of B-Wrap, it takes longer to apply than two wraps of net wrap. However, if an operator applies four wraps of net wrap, it will take approximately the same time as applying B-Wrap. Ejecting a B-Wrap bale does not significantly increase baling time.
With B-Wrap, an operator must shut off the power take-off (PTO) and back up before ejecting the bale. These steps need to occur so the bale is placed in the correct weather-tight position after ejection with the wrap seam downward facing.
If an operator backs up as the bale is wrapping, the only time increase comes from shutting off the PTO. B-Wrap is not a replacement; it is an addition to net wrap. In general, an operator will only use B-Wrap on a certain percentage of bales per year.
Improved weather ability in outdoor storage
Minimal dry matter loss - studies have shown up to a 20-percent reduction in dry matter loss
B-Wrap will not freeze to bales
One portion per bale regardless of crop type
Handles and ships better than net wrap
Slip clutch alert, B-Wrap kit, and net wrap option need to be installed on baler
Highest cost (approximately $4.00-$5.00 per bale increase over net wrapped bales)
Must shut off PTO and back up to eject the bale in the correct position
Fixed number of bales per roll (one 1.5-m [5-ft] roll bales 35 bales and a 1.22-m [4-ft] roll bales 45 bales; number of bales per net wrap roll or twine ball varies by operation)
When to use
Second or third cutting of hay
Carryover hay – hay that will be baled in one year and fed or sold in subsequent year(s)
High-quality hay crop
Hay that is planned to be sold
Hay that will be fed later in the season
Crops that spoil or take on moisture quickly in outdoor storage Crop residues baled for biomass or bedding
Depending on the situation, one type of material may better meet a producer’s needs. Factors affecting the situation include storage capability, cost, shipping options, and the type of baler or its attachments. Discussing these aspects is important to deciding which material will suit the producer best.

Depending on the model, the producer may be able to choose between a MegaWide™ High Capacity and Cutting (HC2) or a MegaWide™ Plus feeding systems. All pickups are low profile for less crop losses and easy bale starting in a variety of crop conditions
Better residue solutions and more reliable performance — John Deere round balers set the industry standard
The MegaWide™ family of pickups have set the tone for the round baling industry since the 7 Series Balers were introduced. While some baler manufacturers may claim to offer superior residue bailing capabilities, the John Deere 7, 8, 9 and 0 Series Round Balers continue to lead the way.
The John Deere MegaWide Plus feed system and round balers produce more uniform bales in less time than other balers in this size range, season after season. That is why John Deere will continue to put the MegaWide Plus feed system on the non-precutter 0 Series Balers. The following segment will primarily focus on the features and improvements that dealers and producers can take advantage of to improve the MegaWide Plus feed system on their 7, 8, 9, or 0 Series Balers.
It is also important to note that the 0 Series will also introduce the first John Deere North-American built, high capacity precutter known as the MegaWide High Capacity and Cutting (HC2) system . It is another option for higher productivity and less downtime on the most abrasive crop baling jobs, including cornstalks, peanut hay, soybean residue, straw, wheat stubble, and grass silages. In factory-observed testing, the MegaWide HC2 showed significant capacity gains over the industry leading 9 Series Balers. In a heavy rye silage with the knives disengaged on the MegaWide HC2 , there was a gain approaching 90 percent in tons per hour baled over the 9 Series Baler. Baling cornstalks, the MegaWide HC2 displayed a 33 percent increase in tons per hour.
The John Deere 560M Round Baler MegaWide HC2 feed system will be the best option for all of the toughest crops and conditions. It is only available for the 0 Series precutter configurations. All dry hay and silage configuration balers will continue to use the MegaWide Plus or regular pickups. The following segment on residue solutions will focus on the MegaWide Plus feed systems and what improvements can be made to gain higher performance.
Take a closer look at what makes a John Deere MegaWide Plus feed system the better baler for tough crops and conditions.
- Augers: aggressively move crop to the bale chamber.
- MegaTough™ teeth: exclusive square design handles high-impact loads without yielding and holds up in the toughest of crop conditions.
- Corncob filler plates: (located right after the pickup strippers) continues flow of crops into the forming chamber.
- Compression rack: using either compression rods or the cornstalk compression rack, they keep crops smoothly feeding into the bale chamber.
- Secondary rotor teeth: provides more consistent crop flow into the bale chamber
- Roller baffle: helps feed short, slick, dry crops (rotary straw) or large, fluffy (cornstalk) windrows into the pickup.
Feed tough, abrasive residue windrows into the round baler with ease. This hard-working rack features a solid steel shaft that is heavy enough to help compact stalks and leaves against the pickup. It also includes a full set of compression rods to keep crop feeding smoothly into the baler. Simply change out for other crops. This compression rack will fit on any 2.2-m (5-ft) MegaWide Plus pickup.
NOTE: The cornstalk compression rack will not fit on the MegaWide HC2.
Avoid time-wasting snags. Certain years can produce corn cobs that can lodge in the strippers, causing the pickup teeth to hit the cob, bend and break. Keep the flow of the threshed corncobs moving smoothly into the John Deere round baler with these corncob filler plates. These plates can eliminate tooth breakage from cobs or other material that gets caught between the pickup strippers.
These corncob filler plates do not need to be removed after harvesting cornstalks and will not impede baling of any other crop. Filler plates will fit on any 1.8-m or 2.2-m (4-ft or 5-ft) MegaWide pickup.
NOTE: Corn cob filler plates will not work with the MegaWide HC2.
