ISOBUS Connectivity

The Bale Baron 4250 Series is now fully ISOBUS compatible, giving the operator full control and visibility over the bundling process, right from the cab. Watch each bundle build as every bale is tracked and counted - both in auto and manual modes - for accuracy every time. The Bale Baron will work with and without ISOBUS. If your tractor does not have an ISOBUS display, an optional display is available. The Bale Baron will also work without ISOBUS using the standard in-cab control.

Greaseless Nitrided Pins and Composite Bushings

To improve reliability and to help make servicing a Bale Baron easier, all pivot points now use greaseless and nitride treated pins as well as composite bushings

Wider Stance

To improve the stability of the Bale Baron, the wheel base has been widened.

Large Twine Cabinets

Storage for 16 balls of twine means you can bundle more than 5000 small square bales before needing to refill the cabinets. Plastic twine is one of the most efficient binding options available. Plastic twine is easy to buy, cost effective and user friendly for producer and end user.

Rasspe Knotter

The Bale Baron uses the proven low maintenance Rasspe knotter for reliability and easy serviceability. Sealed knotter components keep dirt out and grease in, requiring grease only once a year. Missed ties have an audible alarm.

Spring Assist Roller Ramp

Once tied, each bundle exits the Bale Baron down the roller ramp and gently onto the ground. The roller ramp is equipped with a compression spring to assist the operator when pinning up the ramp. Add a roller chute extension for stationary baling.

Turn Table

The aggressive traction of the Bale Barons perforated turn-table grabs the bales as they exit the baler giving excellent side hill performance.

Dual Caster Wheels

Two dual heavy-duty front caster wheels for increased stability and flotation. Hollow rubber block suspension on casters for smooth trailing.

Smart Solve

The Smart/Solve system runs using a PLC that constantly monitors and warns the operator when needed. Smart/Solve provides user friendly command and alarm messages for the operator.


ISOBUS Display Unit

If your tractor does not have ISOBUS, Marcrest offers an ISOBUS display unit.

3 Point Hitch Mounted PTO Power Unit

The 3 Point Hitch Mounted PTO Power Unit is designed to be used in conjunction with a baler and trailed Bale Baron. This unit allows older tractors to be used to run the Bale Baron that may not have the hydraulic capacity but have the horsepower to do the job.

Telescoping Endgates

This kit allows you to choose the standard 21Pack, 18Pack or 9Pack bundle. The kit consists of telescoping endgates which change from 21Pack to 18Pack or 9Pack with the pull of a pin. Hydraulic expeller rollers are needed to move the 9Pack onto the roller ramp and are recommended for the 18Pack bundle.

Wide Euro Style Tires

Optional 19/45-17 10 ply tires are available on the rear axle. These wider tires offer increased traction and better flotation in muck soil or wet conditions.
