Balers behind Combines
Hi all,

I found this link, on another site, regarding balers being used behind combines. It is very interesting, so I decided to post it here.

You will need MS Power Point or Power Point Viewer to view it. It is also a big presentation (about 10 MB), so just a friendly warning if you have dialup that it may take a while.

The link is;

Alternately, here is the link to the page at Combine Talk Forums, where you can open the link direct;

I remember seeing some pics posted on FP some time back showing these setups working in Western Australia, so thought this link may be of interest to some out there.

Cheers,

TC.

Re: Balers behind Combines
TasCowboy,
i havent seen too many balers behind combines before BUT there are a few "Chaff Carts" being towed by combines that catch the chaff that blows over the seives a neighbour uses one then they use the chaff for feedlotting lambs. A local company makes them and having our local field days this year i might try to get a picture of one for you to see.;-)

This seems to be a big thing in WA Andy.

I saw some pics on here of a CAT with a big square baler in tow ages ago & there are pics of similar rigs on the Power Point presentation, as well as some chaff carts.

Re: Balers behind Combines
A powerpress is only a baler, self propelled, but not an combine?? or am i wrong??:-[

DJ is wright about the straw, it needs to dry, at least one day:-) two would be better, but the weather isn't that good all the time:-(

Re: Balers behind Combines
Very intresting and impressive machines TC! :-)

But I have to give DJ and Robin right about the conditions of baling straw here in Europe. Some years maybe the conditions allows baling directly after the combine in the beginning of the season, but later in the season we can maybe harvest 8-10 hours a day, but only bale 6-7 due to moist.

Re: Balers behind Combines
Yes guys, thats why it has been used in Western Aus I guess (nice dry harvest conditions & lighter crops, so straw would dry quicker anyway) ;-)

Re: Balers behind Combines
I´ve seen once here, in FP, a combination of a Cat combine and a MF 185 bigbaler,impressive combination Tas, they may be practical in the Australian or American great plains but not in little or steep extensions like our fields. Here we don´t have problems with excess of moist (better bales are made in the night or early in the morning). I believe that combines must need a power boost in the engine.

Regards
