Krone Bale Collect

  • Saves time and costs in big baling
  • Telescoping drawbar for optimum rides
  • Choice of various patterns of depositing the bales to suit multiple bale handling strategies
  • Standard and integral weighing system
  • Efficient and reduced soil compaction
  • Control 2 machines from 1 terminal

Running behind the baler, the KRONE Bale Collect collects up to three square bales from a 120 cm wide chamber or up to five bales from an 80 cm chamber. And has a choice of unloading modes to prepare the bales for the next steps in the field, significantly shortening post-baling loading times, reducing journeys and minimizing soil compaction.

Telescoping Drawbar

Telescoping Drawbar 

The bale accumulator is attached to the baler to collect the bales as they leave the baling chamber. To ensure safety on the road, KRONE has come up with an innovative attachment via the telescoping drawbar. For road transport, the platform folds into a compact unit of less than 3 m, the drawbar extends and the castering wheels/axles are made rigid. This allows BaleCollect to track reliably behind the baler – for safe rides at high speeds of up to 50 km/h and through narrow gates.

How It Works

How It Works 

The Bale Collect platform can store up to three bales that leave a 120 cm chamber or up to five bales from an 80 cm chamber. When a bale leaves the chamber it is pushed to the right or left side by a bar, clearing the way for the next bale to enter the platform. All bales are automatically pushed off the platform according to the unloading mode selected by the operator.

Depending on the individual harvest and process chain, customers may want to have their bales deposited in specific patterns. To suit individual needs, Bale Collect offers five different strategies or modes of depositing the bales in the field. The ‘3 bales” or ‘3+1 bales’ modes are used to unload all bales on or near the headland. By comparison, silage bales will be deposited to the ‘2 bales side by side’ mode or the ‘2 bales apart’ mode. These strategies are selected in harvest chains where the following wrapper is wrapping two silage bales into one pack or even picks up the bales itself. Of course, the operator can also push off the bales manually at any time by pressing a button.
