Vicon FixBale 500

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.

 The Advantages:

  • New 2.3m extra wide low profile pick-up equipped with twin cam tracks and five tine bars
  • New SuperCut 15 knife pre-chopping system
  • Parallelogram Drop Floor system for faster unblocking
  • Fixed chamber with 18 ribbed rollers for high-density bales
  • PowerBind net wrap system
  • Simple and intuitive control with the Focus 3 terminal

New 2.3m Extra Wide Pick-up

New 2.3m extra-wide pick-up, designated ‘XL+’ incorporates an extensive series of upgrades: 

  • Equipped with five tine bars with 32 tines per bar
  • Each tine bar is supported by four ball bearings along its length
  • Twin easy access cam tracks located at both ends of the pick-up
  • Large diameter roller crop press for increased intake speeds
  • Innovative inboard driveline design for reduced transport width


New SuperCut 15 Chopping System for optimum Cutting Performance

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.

Parallelogram Drop Floor System for faster Unblocking

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.

PowerBind Net Wrap

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 Full Roller PowerMax Bale Chamber

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.

TechnoPack (option)

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.

Smart Controls

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.

  • TIM system as optional equipment
  • TIM takes most of the work off the operator's hands when baling
  • Significant increase in comfort for the operator, as endless work steps are saved
  • Reduced operator fatigue and faster completion of work while maintaining high bale quality
  • High user-friendliness of the TIM system, which even regularly changing operators can quickly master

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:

  • Bale density adjustment
  • Net quantity adjustment
  • Tying information during the binding cycle
  • Selection of manual or automatic binding
  • Five daily bale counters & total bale counter
  • Selection of knives, drop floor or pickup raise/lower function
