Features & Benefits

Camless wide pickup

A camless wide pickup with no cam tracks or follower bearings allows for a smooth, quieter operation compared to previous models. This durable, 5-bar pickup is equipped with steel teeth for baling tough or heavy crops and features fewer moving parts to help reduce maintenance and prolong the life of the machine.

3-year pickup warranty

The Vermeer 3-year pickup warranty covers the internal components and includes parts* and labor on the 504R Signature baler. Operators can rest assured the pickup is backed by Vermeer parts and service. *Does not include teeth or hardware for teeth.

More total tines

A 5-bar, camless wide pickup features more total tines to gather the crop for big feeding capacity. This helps minimize the wear on each individual tine and more importantly provides a more efficient, positive start of the crop into the bale chamber. More tines can also equal more crop picked up in the field.

Rotor

An aggressive rotor creates positive bale starts while the auger and feeding system forces crop onto rotating belts and then into the chamber for bale formation. Together, along with the camless wide pickup, this forms square-shouldered, dense bales.

Real-time moisture sensors

Real-time moisture sensors come standard on the 504R Signature baler and provide moisture readings via the Atlas™ control system, giving operators access to real-time moisture information in the tractor cab.

Optional hydraulic pickup lift

An optional hydraulic pickup lift provides convenience for operators switching between multiple fields in a day, eliminating the extra trips in and out of the tractor. Available hydraulic controls allow the operator to easily lift and lower the pickup without getting out of the cab to make sure pickup teeth aren’t scraping the ground.

Durable drivetrain

The durable drivetrain handles starting and stopping during operation. The three main drive chains are made with 80 diamond chain to minimize chain maintenance. The upper and lower drive bearings have a 33 percent higher load rating while the clutch’s maximum torque rating is 32 percent higher than on previous models. Durable parts allow operators to efficiently bale dry or wet hay.
