The new Vermeer SBW-series single bale wrappers allow producers to wrap high-moisture bales in individually wrapped, high-nutrition packages. Ideal for small- to mid-size operations, the SBW8500 is designed to boost production output and enhance operator convenience. With more convenient features than the other single bale wrappers, the SBW8500 can handle 5.2-ft x 5-ft (1.6-m x 1.5-m) bales up to 3300 lb (1496.9 kg).
IN-CAB ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEM
A new in-cab electronic control system features a color touchscreen that provides an automated wrapping process and access to real-time field statistics.
Ground bracing helps steady the load while the bale discharge system pivots up to cradle the bale and releases it at a low drop point which minimizes damage to the package.
DURABLE LOADING ARM
A durable loading arm guides and positions the bale gently onto the wrapping table. While wrapping, the SBW8500 can carry a second bale on the loading arm during the wrapping process for increased operating efficiency. The loading arm can then be quickly folded for transport.
ACTIVE BALE DISCHARGE SYSTEM
As soon as the wrapping table tips backward, the active bale discharge system is triggered. As the finished bale is being lowered to the ground, a cut-start system neatly slices the film and secures it for the start of the next wrapping cycle.
OPTIONAL END TIP FEATURE
The optional end tip feature on the SBW8500 gently tips the wrapped bale when unloading so it sits on its end, making it ready for easier stacking.
INCREASED ON-MACHINE BALE STORAGE
The ability to store three rolls of plastic film on the machine allows the operator to be productive and stay in the field while it is time to wrap. The storage stays clear of machine operation but provides easy access when it is time to reload.
