Vermeer Announces Next Generation of  Rancherˆ® Balers

PELLA, Iowa, August 28, 2012 – The Vermeer Rancher® Balers offer customers a right-sized, right-priced baler for their ranch, with the ability to produce large-diameter bales that can be easily moved and fed. And now, the next generation of Rancher Balers from Vermeer is here with the introduction of the Rancher 6640 and Rancher 6650 Balers.

“Rancher Balers are built to meet the needs of our cost-conscience customers, while still providing the features they need on their ranch,” says Phil Chrisman, Vermeer Product Manager. “Now, the Rancher Baler models include features such as standard flotation tires and improved Haysaver wheels, enhancements meant to make the Rancher Balers an even better fit for these customers.”

Standard flotation tires (31x13.5L15) on the Rancher 6640 and 6650 Balers offer improved flotation for smoother handling on rough terrains over previous Rancher Baler models. In addition, the improved design of the Haysaver wheels make adjustments simple, using just a few turns of the wrench, and the addition of a radial pin clutch at the pick-up provides better durability and reliability.

The new Rancher Balers come standard with the Bale Expert™ monitor offering user-friendly functionality such as bale shape sensing, real-time bale size data and optional moisture sensing. Customers can also get the optional Vermeer netwrap system, which is easy to load, feed and operate.

The Rancher 6650 Baler produces bales up to 66” x 61” (168 cm x 155 cm) with a minimum horsepower requirement of just 60hp (44.7kW). The Rancher 6640 Baler can produce bales up to 66” x 47” (168 cm x 119.4 cm) with just a 50 hp (37.3kW) minimum.
