Kuhn claims that its new VB 7100 round baler presses 30 tonnes of straw into as much as 140kg/m3 bales per hour. The technology behind this is i-Dense, an intelligent density control system that relies on a double tensioner. A moisture sensor ensures the pressure is automatically adjusted to the current crop quality. The belt type baler uses four belts and three rollers to bale 1.65m bales (VB 7160) or 1.85m bales (VB 7190). The rear door ejects the bale in only four seconds.
