the Norden Accumulators
Bale accumulators are machines that arrange bales into groups and situate them on the ground. A grapple mounted on a loader retrieves the grouped bales.
Norden Mfg Bale Accumulators use excess energy from the baler plunger. The bales are pushed after each other up and out the top of the front chute. As gravity moves the bales downward, the last bale in each row swings a gate to open the next row. The last bale in the grab opens the back gate. As they slide out, springs automatically return all the gates back to their starting position, ready for the next bale to start the next group.
