Continuous Round Baler (CRB) Concept

 

No more stopping and waiting for each finished bale to eject before moving on to the next one. With the continuous round baler concept from Vermeer and Lely, you can keep moving forward, rolling bale after bale, until the job is done. As the finished bale is ejected, the next bale is already being formed in the chamber. This helps to increase productivity, save time and reduce operator fatigue.

Features and benefits

  • Increase Efficiency - For operations that typically use 2‐3 balers at a time, the CRB concept allows you to produce with less equipment and less labor.
  • Increase Feed Quality - Hit the optimum window for baling, and ultimately high‐quality feed, on more acres with the improved productivity of continuous round baling.
  • Less Operator Fatigue - Having to stop, wait and turn to check bales all day takes a toll on operators. The CRB can reduce these actions.
  • Less Wear and Tear on the Baler - Frequent stopping and starting also takes a toll on the baler. The CRB concept offers less starting and stopping, reducing the amount of wear and tear on the chamber and helping extend the life of the machine.
  • More Time and Fuel Efficient - The tractor and clock continue to run when operators stop and wait for the bale to eject. With the CRB concept, operators maintain productivity while consuming less time and fuel.

Continuous Round Baler (CRB) Concept-How it works

No more stopping and waiting for each finished bale to eject before moving on to the next one. With the continuous round baler concept from Vermeer and Lely, you can keep moving forward, rolling bale after bale, until the job is done. As the finished bale is ejected, the next bale is already being formed in the chamber. This helps to increase productivity, save time and reduce operator fatigue.

CRB Action 1

It starts with crop intake. The camless pickup and rotor delivers smooth, continuous intake so a bale starts to form in the chamber. The tensioning system controls the belt to form high density bales right from the start. The bale is then moved toward the tailgate by the bale sidewall discs, and net wrapping starts before the bale transfer. As the first bale transfers, a new bale starts to form immediately in the front. And so the process continues, until the job is done.

Determined to keep operators moving forward in the field in order to boost productivity and save time, Vermeer introduced the first fully continuous round baler (CRB) in September 2014. Developed in conjunction with the Lely Group, the new CRB concept machine allows two bales to be formed simultaneously, enabling the operator to continually move forward without having to stop and wait for a finished bale to eject before moving on to the next bale.
