3-Tie Side Feed Pull-Type Baler

370/375/380/385

The Freeman three-tie balers are designed for higher capacity by increasing the power each plunger stroke delivers. The 420 lb flywheel, turning at 600 RPM, drives two 210 lb bull gears, which in turn power the 300 lb plunger at 84 strokes per minute. By using the kinetic energy from the heavy-duty flywheel, bull gears and plunger, these balers can bale up to 25 tons of straw and up to 30 tons of alfalfa per hour.

By designing the baler to use this stored energy during the power stroke of the plunger, the resultant power surges normally experienced when baling in heavy windrows are greatly reduced. This feature minimizes wear on the tractor’s drawbar and the baler’s engine while reducing fuel consumption by smoothing out the power requirements based on the plunger cycle.
