Bale chamber is extended by 31.5 inches or 31% for up to 10% higher bale density.


The longer bale chamber also means bales exit the bale chute closer to the ground for gentler bale drop and less concern about twine breakage.


A larger platform allows for easier cleaning of the sides of the baler.


More LED illumination provides greater visibility in all conditions for increased operator efficiency. New LED work and service lights provide clear illumination in key areas — at the twine boxes, needles, knotters, right-hand and left-hand stuffer, pickup and rear safety rail.
