Kverneland has updated its round baler product range with the introduction of a new fixed-chamber round baler, the 6500F. Kverneland said its fixed-chamber round baler was designed for use in heavy, wet silage conditions. It had planned to use this year’s Ploughing for its first public Irish appearance, had the event not been cancelled.

The baler is fitted with the new XL+ 2.3m wide pickup reel. An extra pickup tine has been added on either side which in turn increases the working width by 10cm compared with previous models. The new five-tine bar reel runs on a cam track system. Tine length has also been increased by 10mm, while the gap between the strippers has been reduced for improved performance in wet crops.
