504N Baler

The Vermeer 504N is designed for high-production hay producers who want the speed, operating efficiency, functionality and reliability of the M Series … and great-looking, high-density bales in smaller 5' x 4' (1.5 m x 1.2 m) packages. It embodies the performance and latest technology of the larger Super M with many of the exclusive design features that placed the M Series model at the top of its class.
