E18 Bale
Accumulator System

For maximum efficiency, group 18 bales. The E18 bale group with 18 bales on edge is popular with the largest acreage farms. This group fits into van trailers very nicely and makes the most of every move. Also filling an 8.5-foot wide wagon or trailer from side to side makes hauling bales to the shed the most efficient. We recommend the E18 bale handling system to farmers that produce 20,000 to 100,000+ bales per year.

Square Bale Accumulator for 18 Bales on Edge

  • Bales arranged on edge, 6 bales wide/3 bales long
  • Largest and most efficient accumulator from Norden Mfg
  • Handles bales from 32” to 40” in length
  • The bale group size is 90” wide and 96” to 120” long
  • 18-bale group offers a 44% time-saving advantage in comparison to a 10-bale group, with each grab from the AE18 containing 80% more bales, and with a 44% reduction in the number of packs
  • AE18 is ideal for filling van trailers from the rear
  • Bale arrangement allows a 9’ x 24’ wagon to be completely filled

Twisted Chute

The twisted chute turns each bale onto its edge, while the baler provides the force needed to push the bales to the top of the chute.

Stainless Steel Deck

The stainless steel deck provides a better surface for the bales to slide in higher dirt and moisture conditions.

Gravity-Driven Gates and Final Bale Trip

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.

Automatic Rear Gate

The last bale in the grab opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs automatically return all the gates back to their starting position, and the rear gate snaps back shut, ready for the next bale.

Cornering Guide Belt

Sharp turns are no problem as the guide belt keeps bales properly aligned and moving up the chute.

Steel Tube frame

This quality steel frame ensures high strength and durability.

Cast steel bale hooks

Once the group is tight, a single hydraulic cylinder rotates all the hooks simultaneously into the top of the bales to pick up the group. These durable hooks allow for 2 hooks per bale to ensure the bundle is secure while transporting bundles.

Adjustable Crowd Bar

The Standard Grabber features an adjustable crowd bar that is mounted on the side of the grabber. When approaching a group of bales, the adjustable crowd bar works in combination with the back frame to crowd the bale group together.
