Vermeer 605N Cornstalk Special Baler

Heavy-duty components

Heavy-duty components – from the O-ring change to the pickups and axles – make the baler durable enough to handle high-volume, contamination-prone cornstalks.

Pickup clutch

The drive system features a pickup clutch that is mounted on the lower drive roller that automatically stops the pickup when desired bale size is reached. Lessening inadvertent overfill of the bale chamber, this feature provides longer pickup life due to less wear and tear on components.

E-Link Pro display

The E-Link Pro display offers enhanced usability, such as easily accessible bale weight and moisture readings on the home screen with optional scale and/or moisture sensors. It also comes with the ability to keep track of information for up to 20 customers, with up to 10 fields per customer, electronically. Additionally, the E-Link Pro display provides the operator with feedback on the Auto Lube greasing system and the pickup clutch control.

Patented powered windguard design

Features evenly spaced, fin-shaped plates clamped to the hex shaft to help feed high-volume cornstalk material into the bale chamber. And it’s reversible – so you can quickly clear the pickup and continue to bale, without leaving the tractor cab.

Inline ramp

The Inline® ramp makes loading bales in the field up to 35% faster by turning the bales during discharge to position them between the rows. Reduce damage to the bales and wear and tear on bale moving equipment, with less movement required for bale retrieval and prevent the need to drive across rows, ridges and stalks.

Standard Auto Lube greasing system

Controlled through the E-Link Pro display, the standard Auto Lube greasing system allows timely lubrication to critical bearings at user-defined intervals. This automatic system performs best with high-pressure polyurea grease.
