Comprima Round Baler

  • The all-rounder for any type of crops
  • Select from 3 different press connector systems
  • Fixed chamber was a convincingly simple design
  • Semi-variable for maximum flexibility
  • Fully variable for baling all bale sizes
  • Also available as a combination bale wrapper
  • NovoGrip slat and belt conveyor, the turning and compaction system for all crops
  • Camless EasyFlow pick-up with w-lined tines
  • Available with feed rotor or cutting system (17 or 26 blades)
  • High throughputs from a massive cut-and-feed rotor
  • Available with net wrap or peripheral film wrap system
  • Easy and fast servicing

The hitch options and the running gears:

  • Variable - hitch ring or ball attachment
  • More options - single or tandem axle
  • Three options - the tyre sizes

Every day, a Comprima has to deal with fast road travel, uneven ground, yielding grounds, and maneuvering in narrow spaces. KRONE Comprima models come with an air brake and various tire options. Perfectly specified to meet all customer requirements, they are available with two different hitch systems, a single or tandem axle.

Comprima has a standard 40 mm hitch ring for bottom- or top-mount attachment. A notch system adjusts the drawbar quickly to the required attachment height. In addition to this, there is a choice of three further hitch options that meet specific needs in specific countries. As an alternative, the Comprima can also be equipped with a ball-head attachment 80 in the bottom hitching. This warrants smoothest rides, better maneuverability and minimum wear.

A compressed air brake system is standard specification on both the single axle and tandem axle models. Machines for export can also be equipped with hydraulic brakes.

Only the Comprima F und V models have the single axle. They can be fitted with three different tire widths for sward protection that range from 15.0/55-17 10 to 500/55-20.

A tandem axle is standard specification on the CF and CV combination baler and wrappers and an option on the F and V models. Tandem axles offer greater tongue loads, smoother rides and better road stability than a single axle. As they offer a larger contact area, they also reduce rutting and protect the soil. There are also three different tyre sizes from 15.0/55-17 10 PR to 500/55-20 available for this axle assembly.

Easy Servicing

Easy Servicing

  • Efficient – Best accessibility for easy maintenance
  • Automatic lubrication - one lubricator attends to all chains
  • Time-saving – Central lubrication manifolds
  • Safe – Automatic chain tension

Designed for premium bale productivity and density, the Comprima also convinces by its uncluttered design and exemplary accessibility. These features make it particularly easy to service. Grease banks and the automatic  chain lubrication system reduce the time that is required for service and maintenance to a minimum.

The large diameter of the gearwheels ensures particularly gentle deflection of the drive chain. This in combination with the automatic chain tensioner leads to a significant reduction of wear and thus to time and cost savings.

A central chain lubrication system with eccentric pump and large reservoir (7 l) reduce the time that is required for service and maintenance. It further enhances the functional safety and economic efficiency of the Comprima. The desired oil feed rate is set at the pump.

All grease points are grouped into easy-access grease banks, saving time and increasing the operator comfort.

For utmost reliability, the hydraulic system on Comprima V, CF and CV is protected by an oil filter with a clogging indicator.

Easy Flow

Easy Flow

  • Safe – 6 mm thick double tines with large diameter coils
  • Well-balanced – The rows of tines arranged in wave shape clear the field evenly
  • Clean – The extra-wide pick-up drum clears the crops off the field completely
  • Simple and effective - no cam track means fewer moving parts, less service and maintenance and extremely quiet running

The Easy Flow pick-up pivots sideways and is known as the pick-up that clears the field effectively even in the most difficult conditions and at high work rates. More than that, its rugged build with very few moving parts gives an exceptionally dependable performance.

With its working width of 2.15 m (pursuant to DIN 11220), the Easy Flow pick-up is a very powerful machine. It gathers wide swaths efficiently and feeds the material in an extremely consistent flow to the feed rotor. Thanks to the generous width it is not necessary to travel through very tight turns while the machine is baling. More than that, the pivoting and spring-loaded Easy Flow provides perfect ground contouring even in very rough terrain.

KRONE has good reasons to opt against cam track control for the Easy Flow pick-up tines. Instead of using many moving parts that are prone to wear, KRONE prefers special strippers that ensure the angle and length of the tines is always correct.

The crop press roller unit supports the action of the pick-up. It scans the height of the swath and prepares it so that the pick-up can catch it completely. Its height is adjusted easily to adapt to the current crop, the swath volume and ground speed.

Feeder Rotor or Cutting Rotor

Feeder Rotor or Cutting Rotor

  • Efficient – Large diameter
  • Quiet running - helical tine rows
  • Continuous flow - for a consistent crop feed
  • Sharp – Best cutting quality

The feed rotor and the cutting rotor of the XCut cutting unit are characterized by high throughput, smooth running and high reliability. Furthermore, XCut stands for excellent cutting quality. All Comprima balers have a drop floor as standard specification.

Its 53 cm diameter makes the KRONE feed rotor with tines in two chevron-style rows a powerful and reliable unit. It furthermore convinces by an extremely even supply of crops to the bale chamber.

Featuring three rows of tines and a massive 53 cm diameter, the powerful XCut rotor has the capacity to provide consistent crop flows and precision cuts while spreading the material across the full width of the feed chamber, which is essential for forming firm edges.

The double tines pull the crops consistently through the blades. The gap between the tines and the blades is extremely small so that not a single stem will pass the blades without cutting. This force-cut is precise and requires little force.

The blades are protected from damage by spring locks. In case of contact with a foreign object, each blade individually ducks down and automatically returns to its initial position later on. a system that results in dependable and high-quality cuts.

The blades are protected from damage by spring locks. In case of contact with a foreign object, each blade individually ducks down and automatically returns to its initial position later on. a system that results in dependable and high-quality cuts.

The manual control is a long lever that takes little effort to operate. Retracting half the number of blades doubles the length of cut and retracting all blades terminates all cutting.

The optional hydraulic blade group control system is operated from the tractor seat, hence saving valuable time.
