A combined grip on the bale: Fortima is equipped with two chain-and-slat elevators, one operating at the front end and the other at the rear to develop high baling pressures and produce perfectly shaped bales.
Stunning simplicity: As more and more material enters the bale chamber, the two chain elevators press layer by layer to form tight and well-shaped round bales. The slats mesh with the crop to provide positive bale rotation at any stage of the baling cycle. The baling pressure is supplied by a hydraulic ram that actuates the tensioners at the front and rear ends. As soon as the bale has reached its preset diameter, twine or net wrapping is triggered. As a last step, the tailgate opens and the bale is ejected.
Variable bale chamber
Carefully designed down to the smallest detail
- Bale density is controlled infinitely variably
- The extra spiral roller speeds up bale starts
- The optional bale ejector ejects the bale actively
Small-diameter bales: Small diameters are typically required in silage applications, because small bales are easier to handle, break up and feed. The 1.00 - 1.30 m (3'3" - 4'3") diameter bales produced by Fortima V 1500 suit most wrappers perfectly.
Large-diameter bales: Large-diameter bales are often preferred in straw and hay as they offer better efficiency, save wrapping material and reduce labour costs.
