VBP 3290 frontside.png

Baling and wrapping – All in one!

Two KUHN technologies combined into one machine—the VBP 3200 Series Variable Baler-Wrapper Combination BalePacks. These machines not only produce high-quality round bales, but securely wrap them to maximum efficiency and preserve forage quality.

The VB 3200 Series begin with a standard VB 3260 or VB 3290 variable chamber baler and combines it with an advanced bale wrapping system. The VBP 3260 and 3290 feature multiple in-cab controlled functions and are designed to work in demanding conditions.

Fast and reliable bale transfer, combined with a high-speed, twin-satellite wrapping unit equipped with IntelliWrap, gives the KUHN VBP BalePacks the capacity to reach an output of up to 60 bales per hour. That’s one bale per minute!

Your benefits

High-Capacity Intake

Pendulum.png

Optimal Crop Pickup

All VBP 3200 models feature a wide pickup with standard crop roller. The pickup is designed to maximize the full capacity of the machine. With a working width of 91” (2.3 m), the machine can work in all windrows and won’t let you down, even in the toughest conditions. Straight pickup tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. The pickup roller compresses the crop against the pickup tines reducing friction, thus reducing leaf loss and increasing baler efficiency by evening out the windrow.

The 91” (2.3 m) rotor model pickup features standard pendulum frame and optional pivoting pickup wheels to allow the pickup to adapt to changing field conditions. Cam-shaped crop guides result in more aggressive and efficient pickup by exposing more of the tine when needed and by pulling the crop away from the tines as it approaches the intake. The cam track then pulls the tines straight down in the rearward position to avoid wrapping.

Integral Rotor Technology

Patented Integral Rotor Technology found on the VBP 3165 baler-wrapper combination. This simple, low-maintenance intake system guarantees an enormous throughput capacity at all times. The short distance between rotor and pickup tines maintains consistent crop flow. The design of this force-fed intake makes higher forward speeds possible for increased productivity and reduces crop damage. The Integral Rotor on all models is provided with rotor tines made out of Hardox® wear plates. Hardox combines extreme hardness and toughness to reduce rotor tine wear. Longer wearing life of the rotor tines will help to provide time and money savings for the operator.

Cutting, OptiCut Rotors

The OptiCut cutting rotors are designed for unlimited intake capacity and excellent cutting quality. KUHN OptiCut rotors, with elliptical shaped rotor tines, are acknowledged by users as one of the best cutting systems on the market. The crop is guided and drawn down to the knives from an early stage, which improves flow and cutting performance and prevents unwanted plugging. The VBP 3165 and 3195 can be equipped with the OptiCut 14 or OptiCut 23 rotor to best suit your needs.

The Integral Rotor, with the 14-knife OptiCut system, is designed to even out the windrow and force-feed the crop into the baler for maximum throughput. The 14-knife OptiCut cutting system provides a theoretical cutting length of 2.75" (7 cm). Each single knife is spring protected against damage from foreign objects. With group selection (VBP 3260 & 3290 models) the operator can choose to have 0, 4, 7, 7, or 14 knives in operation.

The Integral Rotor with the 23-knife OptiCut system from KUHN has the benefits of intensive cutting and mechanical protection. The 23-knife OptiCut system provides a theoretical cutting length of 1.75" (4.45 cm). Each single knife is spring protected against damage from foreign objects. With group selection the operator can choose to have 0, 7, 11, 12, or 23 knives in operation.

Consistent, Firm Round Bales

VB_Progressive Density-V2.png

Progressive Density Plus – The KUHN Solution

The Progressive Density Plus system is now standard on all VBP 3260-3290 models. Compared to the Progressive Density system, Progressive Density delivers up to 10% greater densities in dry crops such as hay, straw and cornstalks.  
 
How Does It Work?
As the bale grows within the bale chamber, the belt tensioning arm is subjected to steadily increasing resistance from two hydraulic cylinders and a spring tensioner. As the bale’s diameter increases, the bale’s density does too. The result is a very firm bale with a moderate core – not too soft, not too hard. With a tougher outer layer, straw bales will be more tolerant to bad weather conditions, while silage bales will maintain their shape for improved stacking and easier handling.

Fast, Perfect Bale Formation

The 5 belt, 3 roller design of the VBP 3200 Series bale chamber ensures fast, consistent bale formation. The aggressive profile of the top chamber roller improves crop contact and reduces crop loss. The front segment of the baler is fitted with a large smooth roller and driven cleaning roller that prevents crop build up at the front of the machine. The unique mix of the KUHN Progressive Density Plus system and smart bale chamber design ensures perfect bale formation every time.

Bale Size

The VBP 3260 and VBP 3290 both offer a maximum bale wrapping size of 63” (1.6 m). The VBP 3260 is capable of forming a 63” (1.6 m) bale, while the VBP 3290 is able to form a 72 5/8” (1.85 m) bale (when not wrapping).

Continuous Chain Oiling System

A Beka Max continuous chain oiling system allows individual adjustment of the amount of oil on each chain. The sturdy and wide oil brushes on the chains ensure perfect lubrication.

Tightly Wrapped Bales

Net and Twine

One of the final steps in creating the perfect bale is the wrap. Securing a bale to protect it from the elements and from losing its shape is one of the most crucial steps. The less time required to secure the bale, the higher the baling operation output.

Rapid and Secure Bale Transfer

To minimize idle time and maximize output, a rapid bale transfer is required. The side guide protection plates of the KUHN VBP BalePacks ensure a rapid and secure bale transfer even when working in steep or sloping fields. The 4-belt wrapping table with two large rollers and four side cones provide maximum bale traction, bale rotation and proper film overlap, regardless of the bale shape.

Patented, Simple Pre-Stretcher

The pre-stretcher holds two 30" rolls of film and maintains a 70% stretch evenly throughout the roll. Conical ends maintain optimum film width and reduce tearing. Aluminum construction avoids buildup of tack from the film. The design and location makes it very easy to change film rolls compared to competitive models.

IntelliWrap, The Intelligent Wrapping Technology

Greater management and control of the wrapping process can be achieved by our unique IntelliWrap control system. IntelliWrap uses sophisticated electronics and hydraulics to monitor the wrapping process and continuously controls the film overlap, allowing total flexibility. Depending on local field conditions, crop and storage periods the amount of film layers (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9...) can simply be adjusted. An excellent distribution of the film around the bale and precise overlap of the film provides maximum efficiency and increased silage quality.

3D Wrapping

KUHN’s 3D wrapping distributes the total film quantity more uniformly and efficiently across the entire surface of the bale.

3D wrapping will first apply the film where it is most needed, the corners of the bale. After finishing the complete 3D wrapping cycle, approximately 80% of the bale is already covered in film. Then the conventional wrapping will make sure that 100% of the bale is covered with stretch film. The film has a perfect oxygen barrier because all layers are glued together with tack. The cylindrical wrap ensures that the bale retains its shape, even after long storage periods. Use of both IntelliWrap and 3D wrapping provides well-shaped, tightly sealed bales and will maintain silage quality over long storage periods.
