  • Optimizing productivity, the Catapult automatic bale feed system provides smooth material feeding by adjusting the feed rate of the bale chain bed to maintain a proper load and PTO RPM on the tractor.
  • Direct feed from a dual fan air circulation system provides consistent material flow from the tub to the spout, reducing inconsistent material flow common with non-direct feed systems.
  • Replaceable, abrasive resistant steel liners provide durability, especially needed when processing contamination-filled material like cornstalks.   
  • Adjust cut control bar position from the tractor cab with the optional hydraulic cut control bar kit. Use the hydraulically controlled adjustment alone, or in conjunction with the reversible slat and chain bed bale rotation to help mitigate tough processing conditions.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
