Two New Models Complete Vermeer’s 504R Baler Platform
“We recognize that hay producers across North America are all different sizes, have different needs and want different features,” says Vermeer Product Manager, Josh Vrieze. “In the 5×4 market, we now offer an entry-level baler with a wide pickup, a baler that offers an even blend of convenience, ease of use, and durability and a baler for the operator who wants more capacity and the ability to bale their own silage.”
Although each of the balers in the 504R Series are built around the same design and come with a three-year pickup warranty, both of the new balers offer specific features to meet the needs of individual producers.
With low horsepower requirements, the 504R Classic is equipped with a four-bar camless wide pickup and the Atlas control system, which includes a 4.3-inch color touchscreen. In addition, the radial pin clutch, windguard roller, and optional bale shape indicators make baling easier for the operator.
Designed to handle wet or dry hay, the 504R Premium is more than a silage special. This baler features heavy-duty components including premium rock belts that can handle more bale weight with added strength, optional flotation tires, and a standard hydraulic pickup. With a faster pickup speed and tie cycle, this baler is designed to handle more capacity, which allows an operator to bale at a quick, efficient pace.
“For years, Vermeer has designed and manufactured a variety of different balers to fit producers’ needs, no matter how large or how small,” says Vrieze. “The goal of our Classic, Signature, and Premium lineup of 504R balers is to package the product in a way that customers can easily determine which baler fits their needs.”
