High Performance Fixed Chamber Baler
Full roller fixed chamber baler with a bale diameter of 1.25m
High Performance Fixed Chamber Baler
Vicon FixBale 500 is the specialist baler for heavy silage conditions. The bale chamber is formed by 18 ribbed profile rollers which ensure maximum bale density and superb bale rotation in all conditions, while power requirement is also kept to a minimum for more efficient operation.
New 2.3m extra-wide pick-up, designated ‘XL+’ incorporates an extensive series of upgrades:
New SuperCut 15 knife pre-chopping system provides higher efficiency and improved crop flow into the baler. Specially profiled knives have been developed to give a consistent chop length with a low power requirement. With a chop length of 70mm, it is the ideal solution for producing tight, dense bales, which result in improved fermentation, with the further benefit of easier feeding out of bales and less wastage.
Individual Knife Protection
Each knife is individually spring protected against foreign obstacles, giving a higher level of protection than systems that protect only the complete knife bank.
The SuperCut 15 intake system is equipped with the super effective Vicon Parallelogram drop floor system, which brings faster and easier clearing of blockages. The system not only lowers the rear edge of the drop floor as per traditional systems but also lowers the front section of the floor, where a blockage is more likely to occur.
FixBale 500 is equipped with the patented front mounted PowerBind net system. PowerBind eliminates troublesome feed rollers and has market leading cycle time.
The net is continuously retained in the PowerBind injection arm. When the bale is 90% complete the arm moves forward ready for the net injection.
When the bale is 100% complete net is fed directly onto the bale in a flat movement angle keeping the net tight at all times, providing accurate and extremely reliable net injection. PowerBind gives you the confidence of doing a professional job, without influence from wind or crop build-up.
Low Net Loading Height
PowerBind offers very low loading height for maximum convenience and time-saving. To replace the empty roll just swing out the shaft and slide on a new roll.
The Vicon FixBale 500 is the specialist baler for heavy silage conditions. The PowerMax bale chamber incorporates 18 heavy duty rollers arranged in a perfect circle for maximum bale rotation capability in all conditions. This is the ideal solution for producing well shaped and dense bales. Production of consistent, high density bales in both wet and dry material is assured. Two rollers in the lower section of the main bale chamber spread the load, reducing stress and increasing working lifetime.
Adaptable Bale Density
For ultimate flexibility and ease of operation bale density is hydraulically controlled and continuously monitored electronically. Density level can be precisely tailored from the comfort of the tractor cab according to prevailing crop conditions.
Techno-Pack has been developed to offer professional farmers and contractors the optimum solution in terms of crop harvesting management. The moisture level of crop entering the bale chamber during the baling process is continuously measured and displayed on the baler terminal. Sensor plates are mounted in the lower part of the bale chamber, from which the system calculates the percentage of moisture inside the bale. The system is able to detect moisture levels up to 50% allowing the driver to decide at any time if crops such as hay or straw are fit to bale - your assurance of always preserving the best possible forage quality.
TIM (Tractor Implement Management)
TIM is a cross-product and cross-manufacturer ISOBUS solution for the agricultural machinery industry whereby the implement is able to control certain tractor functions. It enables two-way communication between tractors and implements, allowing both machines to work in perfect harmony. As well as increasing efficiency, the possibility of human error due to fatigue is also greatly reduced. TIM technology has the advantage of significantly increasing driver comfort by automatically performing many of the repetitive actions of the baling process.
The cost aspect is another factor to bear in mind. Highly efficient use of TIM-equipped baler results in lower costs for parts that wear out.
Focus 3 Control
Vicon FixBale 500 is standard equipped with the Focus 3 terminal. All important settings are made from the comfort of the tractor seat, allowing for movement adjustment and a comfortable working environment.
Focus 3 is designed for easy operation with the following functions controlled from the terminal:
