BALER EFFICIENCY CALCULATOR

This calculator demonstrates how changing from baling with a pulled wagon to the Norden Mfg bale accumulator and grabber system will increase the daily output of your baler. The Baler Efficiency Calculator is pre-loaded with default values from an average hay operation. Change the numbers to customize the calculator to your operation.

Please notice that there is a 20% efficiency loss calculated for both the traditional method as well as with the accumulator. This is because of the typical time lost when turning at the end of rows, reloading twine and other random things like chamber pressure adjustments.

The Baler Efficiency Calculator calculations are in no way a guarantee by Norden Mfg as to the output of our equipment or any accumulator and grabber system on your farm. Conditions on every farm are different and vary by the day. Please call us if you have any questions about the calculator or would like to work with us on calculations for your farm.

The Baler Efficiency Calculator is an estimation tool used to estimate an approximate gain in efficiency using an accumulator and grabber system versus a pulled bale wagon and does not factor turning at the end of the rows or changing twine, etcetera.
