Double tap to zoom



  • Standard flotation tires (31x13.5L-15) offer improved flotation for smoother handling on rough terrain over previous Rancher Baler models.
  • Radial pin clutch provides protection at the pickup for durability and reliability.
  • Haysaver wheels help clean up stray hay on the edges of the windrow, and the improved design makes adjustments simple with just a few turns of the wrench.
  • Right-sized bales 66" x 61” (168 cm x 155 cm) that are big enough for feeding yet easy to handle. Right-sized baler utilizes low horsepower tractors 60-75 hp (44.7-56 kw) for lower fuel consumption.
  • User-friendly baling operation with the standard Bale Expert™ monitor and optional Vermeer netwrap system, which is easy to load, feed and operate. See the specifications below for additional monitor functions.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
