Designed for use in heavy silage conditions the Vicon FixBale 500 incorporates an 18 roller bale chamber - increased from 17 rollers in previous models, with two rollers located in the bottom of the bale chamber to give extra support for heavy, wet silage bales. Bale density is taken care of by a new hydraulic density system designed to ensure consistent bale quality in all conditions.
A new 2.3m wide pick-up, designated ‘XL+’ has been introduced and incorporates an extensive series of upgrades. An extra tine has been added on either side, increasing working width by 10cm compared to previous models. The new five tine bar reel incorporates a cam track located at both ends, while each tine bar is supported on four bearings. Tine length has been increased by 10mm and the gap between the strippers has been reduced for improved performance in wet crops.
