Vermeer is pleased to add two new models to the Pro line of silage-focused balers. The additions include the next generation 504 Pro baler and the all-new 604 Pro baler which are designed for operators who need the durability required for silage baling, while maintaining the flexibility to put up high quality dry bales.

“Features such as Hydroflexcontrol and the Xtracut17 precutting system have been very effective in baling wet hay and we are now excited to offer those features in another baler size,” said Vermeer Product Manager, Josh Vrieze.

The Pro balers have quickly earned a positive reputation for baling wet or dry hay in extremely dense packages. The launch of the 604 Pro will now allow operators to have a baler that can perform Pro functions while making larger dry bales or smaller wet bales.

“Now, the custom operator who needs the ability to precut forage, make multiple size bales, bale wet or dry hay, can do it all with one baler,” continues Vrieze. “The bale density is what sets the Pro balers apart. We have seen operators unroll a 6 ft x 4 ft bale and roll it back up with the 504 Pro in a 5 ft x 4 ft package. The denser the bales, the less storage space, transportation and plastic/netwrap an operator should expect.”

Each baler is equipped with a camless wide pickup that requires no cam tracks or follower bearings, helping to reduce the maintenance required. Four endless belts eliminate lace maintenance to help increase longevity, and large float tires are available for smoother handling on rough terrain.
