Compression Rack Builds Better Bales
Livestock producers can make more tightly packed large round cornstalk bales by installing the Extreme Duty Compression Rack from The Fine Twine Company. Owners Rick and Tony Kellen say extra weight provided by the large roller and the long metal rods behind it press fluffy stalks down into the baler teeth for more aggressive feeding.
The rack has a machined steel tube that offers greater strength and bulk than similar products made of plastic. The 8-in. dia. roller is 4 in. larger than OEM models. The long bar is mounted on a solid shaft rather than a hollow pipe like the OEM. Fine Twine’s model also has 10 compressor rods rather than 6 found on the original equipment.
Farmers who’ve used the Fine Twine attachment say they get more material into heavier and more compact bales so there are less bales to haul from a field, saving fuel and labor. The bales are also easier to handle and hold up better in storage.
