Picking up pre-stacked bales that match loader capabilities can cut loading time up to 50% over traditional accumulation methods. This will substantially reduce the amount of time a hay operation spends picking bales. Saving time in an operation translates into saved money. This mainly comes through less depreciated hours on equipment and less labour.
Like the generations of accumulators before it, the Stacking Accumulator is fully automatic. The operator can concentrate on the baling process and not worry about the accumulator. The Stacking Accumulator is designed with many fail-safe’s. For instance broken bales or severely misshaped bales are automatically ejected from the accumulator and automatic stacking resumes. Safety lockouts are built into the machine for operator peace of mind.
The PhiBer Stacking Accumulator is designed for balers that produce 4′ (120cm) wide bales. Operators can program the Stacking Accumulator to assemble bales two or three high. The stacks are created from the lead end of the bale making uniform packages.
The PhiBer Stacking Accumulator is designed primarily for dry hay applications. The Accumulator is designed to unload in varying speeds from 3 – 13mph. This range can vary depending on a number of conditions. A pause-to-dump feature has been added giving the operator the option to pause unloading while making a turn.
All PhiBer Accumulators are powered using the tractor hydraulics. Unique to PhiBer is the ability to set them up in all three different hydraulic systems, closed center, open center and closed center load sensing.
The Accumulator is designed so no daily maintenance is required. Part of this design includes many safety features to keep both the operator and machine safe.
