Features & Benefits

Advanced netwrap system

Advanced netwrap system makes net easier to feed, easier to operate. No more hassles with belts and rollers. Just feed net directly to the baler’s main belts.

Balanced density system

New balanced density system, with improved belt tracking, increases belt life and produces better-looking bales. Also, Alligator rivet belt laces are used for maximum strength.

Optional Haysaver wheels

Fill the bale chamber corners and build square-shouldered bales with optional Haysaver wheels.

Smaller balers

With a 50-hp (37-kW) tractor, the Rebel 5520 baler produces 5-ft x 5-ft (1.5-m x 1.5-m) bales that weigh up to 1200 lb (544.3 kg).
