  • The 18-bale arrangement offers a 17% time-saving advantage in comparison to a 15-bale option, with each grab containing 20% more bales and with a 17% reduction in the number of bundles
  • Bundle arrangement ideal for filling van trailers from the rear and for filling 9’ by 24’ wagons
  • Heavy-duty bale grapple.
  • Requires a loader with at least 2,600lb lift capacity, see details for hydraulic requirements


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.
