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.
