Integrated Baler

Vicon FastBale -  Fixed Chamber Baler

The art of round baling took a massive leap forward with the unveiling of FastBale – a revolutionary non-stop round baler wrapper combination that cleverly integrates a pre-chamber with a main chamber and a wrapper. Machine layout is truly innovative with two chambers arranged in series, allowing a number of rollers to be shared. Operating as a pre-chamber, the first section of FastBale produces two-thirds of the bale. As the pre-chamber reaches its preset density, crop flow is diverted into the main bale chamber allowing baling to continue.

FastBale represents two world firsts: it is currently the World’s only non-stop fixed chamber baler and secondly, it is the World’s only non-stop fixed chamber baler wrapper combination.

FastBale has received multiple awards!

How it works

 

 

 

The bale is formed in the main bale chamber in the conventional manner until the required density is reached.

When the bale is fully formed, the crop flow is diverted to the pre-chamber, while net is applied to the complete bale.

The tailgate opens and the completed bale rolls directly in to the wrapper by gravity.

 

 

 

The wrapper is raised to its working position and wrapping commences.

 

Crop flow continues to fill the pre-chamber until the pre-set density is reached.

 

Crop flow and pre-compressed crop are transferred to the main bale chamber.
