What are the advantages of round bales?

Round bales are a particularly effective solution for conserving silage. With dry crops, round bales fill the gap in terms of efficiency between small square bales and large square bales. Depending on the farm, they can also help to save more money. Round bales can be made from dry hay, straw or silage. This means that hay, for example, can be stored outdoors in well-drained storage areas and protected from the rain thanks to a well-applied wrapping film and an even distribution of film or net binding . In addition, it is much easier to conserve and manage raw materials with round bales as they reduce dry matter losses which usually result from storage in silos.

How does a round baler work?

The round baler collects the crop and transports it to the bale chamber using a variety of different feed systems that have been specifically designed for maximum efficiency. These systems can be adapted to the types of crops harvested and the user’s preferences. Each feed system has specific characteristics, such as an ability to optimally process certain crops or to cut the forage at a specific length. The harvested crops are then pressed in the chamber to produce bales that are the desired size, weight and density. Once the bale has been formed, it is held together with twine, net wrap or wrapping film to ensure that the shape and quality of the forage is maintained during storage and transport.

What size round bales do the KUHN balers produce?

Round bales measuring 0.8 x 1.60 m or 0.8 x 1.85 m.

Even though these sizes are “standard”, the overall diameter of the bale can be modified according to the farmer’s preferences. The extent to which a bale can be modified depends on the baler model, but a baler that makes bales measuring up to 1.60 m can be used to produce bales measuring 1.35 m and a baler that makes bales measuring 1.85 m can produce bales measuring 1.60 m, for example. Balers with fixed chambers can only be used to produce bales that are the size of the chamber. KUHN fixed chamber balers produce bales with a diameter of around 1.30 m.

What can I bale with a round baler?

Round balers are designed to process a large range of crops including silage, dry and wrapped hay, and even straw and corn stalks . Livestock  producers especially can benefit from the versatility of a round baler. Here at KUHN, we offer a large variety of products that meet their needs.


What is a baler-wrapper combination?

Combination balers  have been designed to provide outstanding performance when processing and conserving crops. KUHN combination balers can operate effectively with different crop types and crop conditions from straw to wet grass silage. Not all balers are adapted to wrapping,combination balers  must be able to work in a wider variety of conditions while eliminating debris from the bale chamber  to maintain their effectiveness. All KUHN combination balers  are offered with the option of film and net binding, your KUHN dealer will be able to find the right combination baler  for your specific requirements.


Cutting rotor or non-cutting rotor?

Rotors are used to produce forage in a predefined size and, in certain cases, can be used to precut bedding  to improve its distribution. As a general rule, a cutting rotor is used to chop the crop as it passes through the intake rotor to make it more palatable for the animal.    But in recent years, it has been more commonly used to reduce the amount of pollution in dry hay and the processing time of bales in mixed rations. Cut bales are also much easier to compress. Not all cutting rotors are equal,  it is best to chop the  crop  to minimise power surges and ensure a uniform   intake  into the bale chamber. The patented shape of the KUHN rotor tines ensures  consistent  crop compression utilising the entire knife edge to maximise chop quality. This is where KUHN balers differentiate from other brands, our competitors rely on forcing crop through the knife providing an inconsistent chop quality and an increased wear rate on the knives. The cutting rotors can chop  the crop at different lengths depending on the number of knives  used. KUHN intake rotors   can be configured in several ways.  A non-cutting OPTIFEED rotor offers the same INTEGRAL design to be inline with the range and also features KUHN’s drop floor technology. This type of rotor excels in  most conditions, including baling   short and dry crops  like straw and corn stalks. Non-cutting rotors offer a large range of capabilities depending on the customers requirements and farming practice.

How much power does a baler need?

The power requirement of a  round baler  depends on numerous factors. The crop and crop conditions, bale dimensions, ground conditions and land topography Ask your KUHN dealer for more information on  baler power requirement   for your specific conditions.

How much do KUHN round bales weigh?

The weight of KUHN round bales can vary depending on the dry matter  content   of the harvested crop. It also varies depending on pre - selected bale densities and bale dimensions.  KUHN offers higher bale densities  due to  its PROGRESSIVE DENSITY technology in the variable baler range.    This system allows bale densities to increase as the bale size grows in the chamber. This technology enables the KUHN baler operators to be in control in terms of bale density, at desired bale sizes, also having the possibility of adjusting core and outer densities separately.  

How much does a round baler cost?

In general, the price of a round baler depends on  the quality of the machine maintenance, the type of crops harvested and the annual bale count . A round baler is an investment and is subject to additional maintenance costs. KUHN round balers have been designed and put through a series of rigorous tests  to guarantee a maximum service life. This includes the strong chains and pins, robust bearings, top-quality belts and parts, all built onto an outstanding chassis and bale chamber design. KUHN also uses integral technology for its reinforced Hardox rotor tines. This helps to minimise overall maintenance by reducing the number of moving parts and reinforcing areas where higher rates of  wear occur.
