The Comprima RoundBaler

Dec 29 2013 11:41 PM | puritanize in Articles

Memphis, TN, October 22, 2013 - Krone North America introduces the Comprima round baler. The Comprima is designed to achieve exceptional bale densities, high throughputs, and smooth operation.

The innovative Novogrip Press System sets the Comprima apart from other balers. The Novogrip belt is made of various layers of fabric and rubber to provide strength and durability. It is the combination of belts and slats that add benefits to the traditional chain and slat design found on Krone round balers. The slats are mounted horizontally on each of the belts. As the crop enters the bale chamber, the slats immediately grip it and begin rotating the material to form the core. In all types of crop and conditions, the slats rotate the bale without slipping. The Comprima can efficiently bale all types of materials including silage, dry hay, and straw.
Available models include the Comprima V 150 XC T, Comprima CV 150 XC, Comprima V 180 XC T, Comprima F 155, and Comprima CF 155 XC. The Comprima V 150 XC T and Comprima V 180 XC T are both variable chamber balers that produce a bale 4’ wide and 39”- 59” high and 4’ wide and 39” – 72” high, respectively. Each of these balers features tandem axles and the Krone MultiCut crop cutter, standard with 26 knives. The Comprima CV 150 XC is a combination baler and wrapper, which retains the same features as the standard Comprima V 150 XC T baler.
The Comprima F 155 is a fixed chamber baler with a semi-variable bale size. The bale size is changed manually by adjusting a set of pins toward the rear of the baler. As the bale increases in diameter, it forces the Novogrip belt off the guide rollers for the bale to continue increasing in size. As the bale expands in diameter, a spring-loaded tensioning bar lowers to ease the restraint on the elevator and allowing it to expand to the desired bale size. The Comprima F 155 produces a bale that if 4’ wide and 49”- 59” high. This baler is also available in a combination baler wrapper identified as the Comprima CF 155 XC.

All Comprima models are equipped with the EasyFlow wide pick-up. The EasyFlow pick-up uses a design that eliminates the need for a cam track. This design results in less wear and a 30% faster pick-up. All models are ISOBUS ready. The Comprima V 150 XCT, Comprima CV 150 XC, and Comprima V 180 XC T come standard with a CCI 200 in cab monitor. This monitor has a large, full color touch screen. This allows the operator to make all adjustments at a touch of the finger, as well as monitor bale formation, bale counts for up to 20 specific customers or fields, and more. The Beta monitor is used on the Comprima F 155. This monitor is simple to use and allows the operator to make many adjustments from the cab, maintains bale counts, and more.
Krone North America, Inc. is an industry leader in hay and forage equipment. Their innovative line-up includes disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, tedders, rotary rakes, round balers, BiG Pack large square balers, BiG M self-propelled mower conditioners and BiG X forage harvesters.

Nov 20 2013 03:28 PM | puritanize in Articles

Why does Circle C Equipment boast to have the best Hay Rakes in the world? Because their Golden Eagle Wheel Rakes actually work, leading to a 100% customer satisfaction rating.

It's all about the testing of their products. Their testing has shown it's all about the presentation of the hay from wheel to wheel, not the size of the wheels like many other companies boast. Farm after farm tests have proven that the higher up on the wheel that the hay is transferred to the next wheel results into the hay being gently handled. No roping, and lays down a hollow windrow resulting in more efficient drying.

Why does this matter in the long run? The savings is the reason why:
(based on using the 3 in 1 system)
  • 1/3 Less Fuel
  • 1/3 Less Labor
  • 1/3 Less Time
  • 2/3 Less Maintenance

Circle C works with each and every farmer to make sure they have the right equipment specific to their farming needs. They can build a raking system for almost any application. Call 1-800-367-1847 for more information or visit http://www.superhay.net/.
