Wrapping and tying – faster wrapping means more bales per day.

Mature performance profile.

Round baling systems require the machine to stop briefly while the bale is wrapped or tied. However, even in this respect, the VARIANT is impressive with its speed and efficiency. The process starts automatically once the desired bale diameter has been reached. The high belt speed of 118 in (3.0 m) / sec ensures an extremely fast tying cycle, making it possible to continue baling right away without wasting any time.

Net wrap or twine tying?

Whether using net wrapping or tying with double twine, the VARIANT is highly impressive in the field. Following the fully automatic start, the easily adjustable precision tying system grips the bale tightly, producing solid bales that hold their shape – just the way you want them.

As in all CLAAS balers, the VARIANT is designed so that tying and wrapping take place in a highly visible area. You see exactly when it starts, follow the action as it progresses, and can tell the moment it's finished.

Filling occurs conveniently via a lateral feed.

A cover for the net is available as an optional extra for extremely wet conditions. It provides protection against moisture, ensuring that the net unrolls smoothly.

The wide-opening panels provide good access for convenient cleaning and maintenance work.
