Features & Benefits

Camless pickup

The Vermeer camless pickup comes standard on the 504R Classic baler. Built with fewer moving parts, this camless pickup allows you to get the job done when you have time to put up hay and minimize parts cost when it is time for routine maintenance.

Atlas control system

The Atlas™ control system delivers robust performance in a simple and intuitive package. A 4.3-in (10.9-cm) color touchscreen displays everything you need to bale and allows operators to enter field statistics to track bales per hour and average bale size. Optional features include ability to see bale shape on the display as well as real-time moisture readings.

Low recommended PTO horsepower

Tractors just don’t run balers. That is why we designed a baler to fit your tractor. With a low recommended PTO horsepower of 50 hp (37.3 kW), the 504R Classic will run with most part-time operators' tractors.

3-year pickup warranty

Operators can rest assured with a 3-year pickup warranty covering internal components and parts and labor on the 504R Classic baler. Does not include teeth or hardware for teeth.

Optional netwrap system

Using netwrap helps to reduce hay loss compared to twine and keep the shape and structure of your bales during storage.
