A hand-held control and a system monitor are responsible for programming and operating the Farm King 4480 Square Bale Carrier. The hand-held control activates the pickup arm and initializes the pickup sequence and operates the pusher and tilt deck.
Shipped from the factory with default settings and preset bale sizes, the bale carrier is ready for operation once the operator indicates the type of hydraulics the operating tractor is using. The carrier adjusts its hydraulic operation to match that of the tractor.
The hand-held control connects to the in-cab harness, which is compatible with the standard 3-tab accessory port on most tractors. The wiring harness is designed to make connections to the power supply and components virtually fool-proof.
Designed to be intuitive and straightforward, the main menu offers four options, selected by buttons located next to the screen: AUTO MODE, CALIBRATE, DIAGNOSTIC, and MANUALS.
The operator simply chooses from one of the preset bale sizes listed on the monitor and indicates preference of single- or double-row stacking.
Every operator has a different set of requirements and the 4480 Square Bale Carrier has several customization options. On the monitor, the operator can set grab arm approach height, squeeze pressure and lift height. A pressure status bar on the monitor allows for quick fine-tuning and customization, and three memory slots are available for various bale sizes.
The carrier features a diagnostic mode that provides the status of seven sensors strategically placed throughout the machine. When the machine is in its neutral, or "Home" position, a quick check of all seven sensors will indicate that the machine is ready to use, or specify which area of the carrier needs attention.
This mode allows the operator to manually operate each function of the bale carrier, which is useful for picking up a bale that is heavier than the others, or is a different size.
