Replacement Pickup for Big Round Bales
The Sund Co., with more than 40 years' experience in building windrow pickups for combines, has used this expertise to develop a baler version of its "best seller" hydraulically-operated, belt-type windrow pickup.
"Standard baler pickups take quite a beating as they're operated over rugged hay fields. In many cases, the only major thing wrong with older balers consigned to the scrap heap is a worn out pickup that's too costly to repair or replace," Lloyd Sund, president, points out. "Our new replacement pickup, priced at about $1,800, including a hydraulic orbit drive motor, is about half the cost of a new original pickup. What's more, our pickup will do a better job and last a lot longer."
The new Sund replacement pickup's hydraulic drive is reversible to remove bunch plugs without having to get off the tractor. It floats and follows ground contours and provides even, continuous feeding to make more uniform bales, Sund points out.
Fits most Vermeer, Deere and Massy big round balers with pinch-type rollers, and some models of other makes. Made of stretch-resistant nylon belting with embedded rubber teeth that seldom, if ever, need replacing, according to Sund.
