Round baler makes 1-1/2 ft diameter balesAn Italian company says it has had a lot of interest in its new small round baler which makes bales about 1 1/2 ft. in dia. and about 3 ft. long.
"It requires only a 25 hp. tractor and makes easy-to-handle bales," says a company representative, explaining that the company first got the idea from farmers looking for a machine that would bale up straw, brush, clippings from vineyards and orchards, as well as other fibrous material into handy-size bales that could be burned in wood stoves or furnaces. "They're great in orchards because you can bale up branches and other pruned materials without having to shred them up with a mower."
The baler can be fitted either with a normal pickup head for hay and straw or the heavier-duty pickup designed for branches and other woody material.
The pto-powered baler has a fixed roller chamber and dumps out the back. Has a 46-in. wide pickup, a bale counter, pto slip-clutch, and shear bolt protection for knotters and flywheel. Sells for about $8,000.
