Features & Benefits

Low horsepower requirements

Low horsepower requirements allow operators to hook up the baler to more tractors.

Hydraulic density system

A new hydraulic density system allows operators to change bale density (via the Atlas control system) based on crop type, moisture levels and bale weight preferences right from the cab.

Affordable

The Vermeer 604R Classic baler was designed for the customer. A customer who has affordability in mind but still wants to put up quality 6 x 4 bales.

User-friendly controls

The new AtlasTM control system and netwrap system provide operators with user-friendly controls to achieve the consistent, square-shouldered bales that we all know and love.
