F8 Bale
Accumulator System

The F8 hay bale accumulator system from Norden is a no-frills and efficient option for many farmers. Whether it is upgrading from a different accumulator that uses hydraulics to needing to fit a small loader, this system provides a solution to small acreage operators. We recommend this system for operations that produce between 5,000 and 12,000 bales per year.

Square Bale Accumulator System For 8 Bales Flat

  • Bales arranged flat with their string side down, 4 bales wide/2 bales long
  • Handles bales from 32” to 40” in length
  • 8-bale group is ideal for small farms, compatible with a smaller loader because it’s under the maximum weight requirement of a grabber
  • If the bales are 36” long, you are able to cross-stack them with the 408 Grabber
  • The bale group dimensions are 72” wide by 64”- 80” long

Straight Chute

The straight chute allowed each bale to stay flat on its strings, 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 Lever

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 Lift 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.

Bale Handlers
For the F8 Accumulator System

408F Grabber

  • For moving and grabbing 8-bale bundles
  • Bale groups can be picked up from the tied end or untied end, enabling cross-stacking
  • Two-bale length allows for narrower wagons or for grabbing longer bales than models that arrange for a 3-bale length
  • Requires a loader with at least 1,400lb lift capacity and one set of remotes

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.

KN408F Tie-Grabber

  • The KN408F Tie-Grabber picks up and ties bales that are arranged by the AF8 bale accumulator. Two long, four wide, flat, on strings.
  • A lower weight requirement for this Tie-Grabber allows for the use of a smaller loader, and the bundle can be picked up from any of its sides
  • The square dimensions of this arrangement allow for cross-stacking, and the 2-bale length allows for narrower wagons or for longer bales
  • Requires a loader with at least 1,700lb lift capacity, and one set of remotes with an optional splitter or two sets of remotes without a splitter

Knotter

This highly reliable Rasspe Knotter allows for a consistent tying method.

Squeeze Arm

Once the machine is aligned with the bale bundle, the Squeeze Arm applies pressure and squeezes the bales tightly together to form a strong and compact bundle. This arm is important for creating a bundle that is easy to stack, move, and load.

Loader Mount

This customizable option allows you the flexibility to move between multiple loader hookups.

Twine Arm

When hydraulically engaged, the twine arm wraps twine around the bundle of bales to hold the bundle together.

Multiple Hose Options

This machine allows you to choose two hydraulic hoses with a wire control in the cab, or a four hydraulic hose option. This customizable feature allows you to choose the best option for your operation.
