  • Large-capacity, five-bar pickup handles heavy, high-volume windrows.
  • Unique positive roll starting system combines with the Vermeer bottom drum design to ensure reliable starts, aggressive intake at higher feed rates and uniform distribution of the core across the entire chamber.
  • Drop ‘n Go bale ejection eliminates the hassles and extra time it takes to disengage and reengage the PTO before starting a new bale.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
