Catapult CPX9000 Bale Processor

The Catapult™ CPX9000 bale processor is a machine that offers power, versatility and easy operation. The Catapult CPX9000 bale processor allows material to be thrown 60-100’ (20-30m), whether that be up and over feed bunks in a cattle operation or for land reclamation and erosion control purposes. Not only does the CPX9000 have the ability to throw forage material long distances, but it also gives operators control over where the material is thrown. Hydraulic controls make this machine easy to use, giving operators the ability to choose how the spout is angled and how the crop is distributed. The Catapult™ CPX9000 bale processor is available only at participating dealers.

Features and benefits

  • Optimizing productivity, the Catapult automatic bale feed system provides smooth material feeding by adjusting the feed rate of the bale chain bed to maintain a proper load and PTO RPM on the tractor.
  • Direct feed from a dual fan air circulation system provides consistent material flow from the tub to the spout, reducing inconsistent material flow common with non-direct feed systems.
  • Replaceable, abrasive resistant steel liners provide durability, especially needed when processing contamination-filled material like cornstalks.   
  • Adjust cut control bar position from the tractor cab with the optional hydraulic cut control bar kit. Use the hydraulically controlled adjustment alone, or in conjunction with the reversible slat and chain bed bale rotation to help mitigate tough processing conditions.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
