Twin-Tie Kit For Deere Round Balers
"Lets you tie round bales 40% faster," says Mel Stovel, inventor and manufacturer of a new twin-tie kit for Deere round balers. The kit replaces the single tie arm with a set of two twine-tie arms that both wrap the bale at the same time. Kits are designed to fit Deere 530 balers but Stovel has plans to fit others as well.
"In a heavy crop you can make a bale in 1 to 2 min. but it takes 2 min. to tie it. That wastes both time and fuel. Our kit ties in 1 min. It also ties bales with less revolutions of the bale, so dry straw bales don't start coming apart," says Stovel, who replaces most of the parts on the original single twine-tie arm with his double arm system. Kit installs with no modification to the baler except for a few new drilled holes. It uses the same hydraulic cylinder and, once installed, the two tie arms swing over the bale from either side to the center of the bale where they meet and then swing back to the sides.
The kit includes two large twine boxes that each hold 4 to 5 boxes of twine and mount on either side of the baler. The do-it-yourself kit, which sells for $1,250 (Canadian), is shipped inside the twine boxes.
