Krone GPS kit speeds up in-field bale collection

The cumbersome task of bale collection can now be simplified with a new GPS-based feature on Krone’s BaleCollect accumulators.

The automatic depositing system has been designed with large-scale farmers and contractors in mind, and allows the baler operator to deposit bales at right angles along pre-set virtual lines – meaning the chaser or trailer has to travel a shorter distance to collect them.

Reducing the amount of time spent trekking across fields to find the next bale will reduce fuel use, says Krone, and also will help eliminate some of the soil compaction problems associated with the job.

The feature is available as a software update for those with existing Smart Connect machinery.
