“Winning this prestigious innovation award gives tremendous recognition for all the team behind the development of FastBale,” says Vicon sales manager David Furber.
“It shows that Vicon is committed to the round baler market, as we continue to develop round baler innovations”.
FastBale is a non-stop round baling solution that combines a pre-chamber with a main chamber and a wrapper. The combination is capable of achieving spot work rates of up to 100 bales/hour.
With no need to stop baling while net wrap and bale transfer take place, productivity and efficiency gains equate to a time saving of around 15 seconds per bale. Wear and tear on tractor drivelines, and operator fatigue are also reduced.
FastBale will be available in limited numbers for the 2017 season.
