Kubota Canada recently launched the new FastBale to its line-up of hay tools. The FastBale uses a pre-chamber and a main chamber arranged in series to create an industry first, dual density bale from a fixed chamber baler.

“Kubota is pleased to introduce the FastBale in Canada and we believe this new product will help redefine the approach to round baling. Unlike a conventional round baler, the FastBale’s unique design saves the operator considerable time since there is no stopping to finish the binding and to discharge the bale,” said Yannick Montagano, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kubota Canada Ltd.

The FastBale baling process starts with feeding crop into the pre-chamber. Once the bale has achieved its set density, the crop flow and the bale are transferred to the main chamber. Once the bale is complete, the crop flow is redirected back to the pre-chamber and netting is applied. The bale in the main chamber is then ejected onto the wrapper where it is wrapped and placed onto the ground.
