RV 5000 Series - Added Simplicity and Productivity

The all-new RV 5000 series features new patented net and twine wrapping and a new software package for easy selection of bale density.

New Net Wrapping – Simplified – Higher Speed
The RV 5000 series comes with the new patented Vicon PowerBind net wrap system. This completely redesigned system has been simplified enabling a significant reduction in elements needed, with feed rollers having been completely eliminated. Additionally the PowerBind provides one of the fastest net wrap actions available - minimum downtime and maximum time baling.

The net is fed directly into the bale chamber by an injection arm in a flat movement angle to keep the net tight at all times providing accurate and reliable net injection. There is no interference from external factors such as wind and crop.

The net is constantly retained by the injection arm, and when the bale is 90% complete the injection arm moves forward, ready for the net injection. Vicon PowerBind is one of the fastest net wrapping solutions available today, adding more uptime. In addition PowerBind offers very low loading height, for maximum convenience and time saving. To replace the empty roll, just swing out the shaft and replace it with a new one.

“Our new groundbreaking net wrap is a fantastic improvement which adds the benefit we were looking for. We have managed to keep the low position of net roll, highly important for easy change of roll, but at the same time we have added a simplified and more reliable solution for the net injection” says Tim Comer, Product Director at Kverneland Group Ravenna.


Intelligent Density 3D – New Operator Experience
Setting and selection of correct bale density is vital in order to the get right quality of the bale. When the baler is utilized in different crops like straw, hay and silage it is important to adjust the bale density to specific type of material. With the new Intelligent Density 3D application three pre-configured bale densities are available from the menu of the control box, each of them tailored for straw, hay or silage. This makes the change-over from different crop material much easier limiting the risk of mistakes.

It is however still possible to customize the bale density in 3 separate zones each with a choice of diameter and pressure to match specific request.

Broad Offering of Variable Chamber Balers
Vicon offers the widest range of variable chamber balers available in the market with two product lines, the RV 5160 - RV5180 designed specifically for operation in dry matter material like straw and hay and the versatile all-purpose RV5216-RV5220 series equally at home in silage, hay and straw. In addition the RV5216-RV5220 is also available in the FlexiWrap execution with baler and wrapper integrated into one efficient solution.
