Squares Or Rounds
The 8200 is the King of flexibility. Featuring a hydraulic wing that opens for squares or closes for rounds, it lets you choose the most affordable bales for your operation. As a bonus, its 9′ 9″ transport width navigates narrow gates or alleys with ease.
Square Bale Capability
The 8200 is ideal for producers that either purchase bales or make their own combination of large squares and rounds. This model can competently process either style without the need for expensive, dedicated machines. Either way, it gives you the freedom to use the most economical bales for your operation.
Bale King processors help simplify your operation and work to get more out of your feed supply. Processed bales take less energy to digest while windrowing gives every cow equal access. Bale King processors are also the tool of choice for bedding straw. Owners report as much as 3X the coverage per bale compared to rolling straw out.
The standard 1000 RPM driveline with shearbolt protection powers a low maintenance gearbox. No belts or chains to maintain. The 80 degree constant velocity PTO shaft gives you extra maneuverability in tight quarters.
The bale rollers are direct drive by high torque hydraulic motors with flow and pressure protection
The hoop grate adjustment lever provides easy adjustment for varying bale conditions.
The heart of every Bale King is the X-Rotor which provides notable benefits over pipe style rotors.
- It’s fan shaped profile moves more air to increase straw spreading distance.
- The X creates a cavity beneath the twine/net to simplify twine removal with a utility knife. No more cutting twine against a steel pipe
- Pipe style rotors are prone to cracking when flails slap back under heavy load. The X rotor provides additional rearward travel for the flail which results is less metal fatigue and a quieter overall experience.
The 27″ diameter rotor at 7000 ft/min flail speed combined with 28 heavy flails on oil impregnated bushings provides exceptional aggression and durability.
The 8200 features an upgraded hoop grate to improve performance in a wider variety of conditions. The alternating long hoop / short hoop design improves throughput while controlling the flow through the rotor.
A close 5″ hoop spacing prevents large square bale flakes from passing uncontrolled through the rotor.
The bale rollers combine rows of wide paddles and short spikes to provide the traction required for a wide range of bale types. These rollers offer effective bale manipulation, low maintenance, and are unaffected by snow and ice freezing in the tub.
Twine guards on the both ends of the rotor and bale rollers keep twine and net out of your bearings
The 8200’s hydraulically actuated wing panel permits processing of round or square bales. You don’t even have to leave the cab to make the switch! The wing is great for manhandling stubborn or frozen bales for better rotor feeding.
Normally, you lower the wing to load the square bale then process the bale momentarily to cut the twine. Once the twine is cut, start raising the wing to keep the disintegrating bale over the rotor.
Twin lift cylinders on the loading fork lift heavy, frozen bales with ease.
Heavy, straight fork tines slide under without skewing the bale. The adjustable tines handle various bale sizes.
Large 16.5Lx16.1 tires provide a smooth ride on rough ground and flotation is soft conditions. An axle extension on the wing-side provides additional stability.
All Bale King processors come with standard road lights, reflectors, and SMV signage.
Powder coat paint is standard for a long lasting, abrasion resistant finish
The 5225 rides on tandem 10000lb capacity torflex axles. An upgrade over earlier walking axle models, the torflex system provides a cushioned ride with exceptional durability. There are no pivots to grease or bushings to wear out.
Low profile 12Lx16.5 tires on 8 bolt hubs carry the load while providing good flotation in soft ground.
A top quality, abrasion resistant powder coat finish is applied to all Bale King products.
