Where Innovation Meets Tradition

Consistently filled, super-dense, square-edged bales are what every producer demands. KUHN LSB D Series large square balers meet and exceed these expectations, while combining high output and maximum reliability to get the job done fast.

KUHN LSB D Series balers have been built from the ground up to provide you with one of the toughest, most reliable large square balers on the market. The KUHN LSB 890 D (3x3) and 1290 D (3x4) large square balers combine high output and maximum reliability to serve as a perfect fit for commercial hay producers.

The D Series balers have been designed with simple, yet efficient features including Integral Rotor Technology and the Power Density System to produce rock-hard, square-edged bales in all crop conditions. Rasspe® double knotters are not only reliable, but allow you to increase bale density by 10% and the number of bales per hour by 15%. Dual hydraulic-driven fans keep our double knotters clean and our competitors envious. KUHN LSB balers feature the simplest drive system in the industry, fewest moving parts, heaviest standard flywheel and longest standard bale chamber to provide outstanding durability and performance. All KUHN LSB balers are ISOBUS compatible, therefore will not require a separate VT monitor for the baler. You can easily change settings such as bale density or knife activation from the comfort of your tractor seat.

Power Density – The KUHN Solution

The Importance of Bale Shape: Consistently shaped bales provide more than just aesthetic appeal. A dense, consistently filled bale represents quality in every form. Square bales are easy to handle and stack. In addition, they are much more stable during transport than a poorly formed bale. In silage applications, a square-edged bale indicates less air content, resulting in higher quality feed.

The KUHN Power Density system, a single feeder fork design, proves that a well-engineered component can eliminate complexity. This system ensures consistently filled flakes and results in heavy, square-edged bales regardless of the windrow condition.

The single feeder fork combines two functions into one mechanism, eliminating unneeded components and complexity. KUHN’s exclusive Power Density system runs at twice the speed of the plunger allowing a minimum of one flake formed per plunger stroke. This creates consistent bale shape and excellent density.

The Bale Chamber

The specially designed bale chamber of the KUHN LSB machines is the result of more than 35 years of experience in large square balers. With the 10-foot long bale chamber, there is plenty of space to form a rock-hard, square-edged bale. The combination of aggressive retainers and special wedge-shaped doors brings maximum compaction and gentle expansion of the bale.

Forty-six plunger strokes per minute result in a high bale capacity. The plunger is guided by four large rollers with a 5 diameter for maximum service life.

Power Density – How Does It Work?

1. The integral rotor actively delivers the crop to the chamber.

2. The single-acting feeder fork lifts the feed up to the measuring plates.

The single-acting feeder fork continues to form the bale flake until the measuring plate is pushed back with a predetermined force.

Once the measuring plate is pushed back, it locks the single-acting feeder fork to push the perfectly formed flake into the bale chamber.

Double Knotting System

The LSB 890 D and LSB 1290 D are equipped with a double-knotting system. With the electronic knotter control, the driver has accurate information concerning twine tension at all times and receives an alarm if an issue arises. The knotting progress can be monitored directly from the tractor cab.
