The bale chamber on the VB 2255/2285 consists of three bale chamber rollers and five belts. The belts and rollers in the bale chamber provide fast, consistent core formation. In this pre-chamber, moderate or soft-cores can be chosen to meet the needs of any feeding or bedding situation. The redesigned bale chamber is equipped with a new heavier top chamber roller with aggressive profile resulting in less material to the front of the baler. This model also has a reinforced tailgate bottom roller and top belt guide roller for added durability. A top forming roller in the front segment of the baler prevents crop build up and material on the machine.
Optimal Crop Pickup
The VB 2260/2290 model features a wide pickup with standard crop roller. The pickup is designed to maximize the full capacity of the machine. With a working width of 83 or 91 inches, the machine is capable of working in all windrows and will not let you down, even in the toughest conditions. Straight pickup tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. The pickup roller compresses the crop against the pickup tines reducing friction, thus reducing leaf loss and increasing baler efficiency by evening out the windrow.
Two Pickup Options
When cutting the crop is not what you’re looking to do, the OptiFlow and OptiFeed intake systems ensure a controlled and consistent crop flow to the bale chamber. The OptiFlow open throat intake has an unrestricted intake unit for maximum capacity in all crop conditions. The OptiFeed rotor with single feeding tines and integrated augers, provide a consistent flow of crop into the bale chamber.
Net Wrap System
The net wrap system with active stretch technology assures a firm bale shape with constant high net tension throughout the entire binding cycle. The net is fed into the front of the bale chamber to secure an even and direct start. A second net roll storage guarantees sufficient net supply for a long working day. Changing the net roll can easily be done standing safely on the ground next to the machine.
Progressive Density - Providing Density Where It Counts
As the bale grows within the bale chamber, the belt tensioning arm is subjected to steadily increasing resistance from two hydraulic cylinders and a spring tensioner. As the diameter grows, the bale’s density does too. The result is a very firm bale with a moderate core – not too soft, not too hard.
With a tougher outer layer, straw bales will be more tolerant to weather conditions, while hay bales will maintain their shape for improved stacking and easier handling.
