High Capacity Baling

  • The Overshot feeder provides smooth and consistent crop flow from the pick up into the bale chamber resulting in higher capacity
  • The 5 bar pick up combined with a roller windguard provides a clean sweep of crop and uninterrupted feeding of material into the baler.
  • Large pick up width allows you to pick up wider, fuller windrows to maximize your productivity in every pass
  • Low-profile design lets the pickup float over ground contours, gently gathering crop and saving nutrient-packed leaves


Durable Performance

  • The heavy-duty pickup features stronger, more durable components to increase the wear life of the pick up
  • The "premium laced" and "endless" belt are designed with higher tensile strength for improved durability and better belt tracking
  • Redesigned net wrap system has an independent up-cut knife system to create less stress on components which results in a more reliable wrapping system
  • The cut out clutch comes with more torque than previous versions


Simple, Easy to Operate

  • Positive twine starts due to twine arm sweeping across the full face of bale from left to right and back rather than staring in center
  • Twine tails reduced to left side only
  • Twine end wrap position adjustable from monitor
  • Consistent twine spacing across entire width of bale


Style with a Purpose

Designed To Pick Up Crop Quickly And Efficiently

Overshot Feeder / In-Feed Auger

  • Overshot feeder replaces the current stuffer feeder pickup for improved feeding capacity
  • In-feed augers are in line with rotor handles providing better crop pickup for heavy windrows and significantly reduces auger plugging
  • 2.0m pickup available on 5x6 units
  • Reel options: 4-bar with steel tines or 5-bar with rubber tines
  • Large diameter in-feed augers reduce incidence of crop jamming augers
  • 5-bar reel with rubber tines standard



  • Enhanced design rubber tine
  • Stronger rubber base with lateral reinforcements
  • 5x more life than previous rubber tine
  • 100% stiffer than coil tine on 4 bar pick up

Additional Pickup Options

  • Adjustable no-tool gauge wheels
  • Castoring gauge wheels
  • Pickup frame mounted gathering wheels

Belt Options: Provide Better Belt Tracking And Increased Durability

Premium Laced Belts

  • MATO premium laced belts have cold rolled loops making them more durable and longer lasting.


Endless Belts

Tractor and Baler Automation
This system controls the tractor stop, bale wrap and bale eject functions without any operator input required. Hooked up to a Puma or Maxxum CVT tractor, operators can take advantage of ISOBUS Class 3 controls to automatically stop the tractor when the target bale size is reached. From there, net wrap is automatically applied and, when the wrap cycle is complete, the baler tailgate raises and lowers automatically to eject each wrapped bale. Once the completed bale is ejected, the operator can simply move the tractor shuttle lever to the forward position and go.
