Features & Benefits

User-friendly baling operation

User-friendly baling operation with the standard Bale Expert™ monitor and optional Vermeer netwrap system, which is easy to load, feed and operate. See the specifications below for additional monitor functions.

Haysaver wheels

Haysaver wheels help clean up stray hay on the edges of the windrow, and the improved design makes adjustments simple with just a few turns of the wrench.

Radial pin clutch

Radial pin clutch provides protection at the pickup for durability and reliability.

Right-sized bales

Right-sized bales, 66 in x 47 in (167.6 cm x 119.4 cm), that are big enough for feeding yet easy to handle. Right-sized balers utilize low horsepower tractors [50 hp (37.3 kW)] for lower fuel consumption.

Standard flotation tires

Standard flotation tires (31x13.5L-15) offer improved flotation for smoother handling on rough terrain over previous Rancher baler models.
