Description: A mid 2000s model of New Holland square baler, another very nice mod by Team FSI Modding.
It was quite hard to find any detailed amounts of RL data on this machine, thus a lot of the MR entries are based on guesswork and on scaling down Durals values of the NH1290BB with power.
For dimensions, power requirements and strokes per minute I used the following sources:
- http://www.ritchiespecs.com/specification?type=&category=Baler&make=New+Holland&model=BB960A+Standard&modelid=101014
- http://speceps.com/spec/agricultural-1304/new-holland/bb960a-standard.html

the following was done for MR:

**Update #1**
adjusted COM
additional Trelleborg wheel configs with steering of the back wheels and better suspension thanks to passion78
set maxDeformation and radius values for the standard wheels

needed power = 120 PTO HP (about 136HP engine)

brakeForce set to 1.06
speedlimit => 25


baleAnimation reworked similar to NH1290BB but adjusted for the longer bale chute
added dummy wheels to aid in the dropping of bales, don't always work perfectly (esp. at higher speeds) but for the most part bales should come out straight
repositioned a collision at the bale chute that caused the bales to "plop" out the back unpredictably

(pitchOffset of the baler sound set to 0.889 / sound duration = 5.080s, number of strokes = 4 => 42 strokes per minute - manufacturer data = 42)

pickingDependantPtoPower : set to 55 main difference in power requirements compared to bb1290
maxLitersPerSecond => 80% of the BB1290 given the difference in power requirements
strokeDependantPtoPower => 30, same as BB1290
litersPerFlake => 80% of the BB1290

further changes:
faster rotation of cooling fans + longer fade times

In the end this baler is actually pretty similar to the 1290BB but with a lower troughput and therefore lower power requirements. This means in low straw yields this baler will perform comparable, while an increase of straw yields will have you encounter more serious slowdown.

Hopefully you will enjoy it. Please give feedback in the comments, especially if you have experience with this baler IRL.
