For haymaking


We propose a series of questions and answers which are among the most common that direct experience has identified to facilitate the knowledge of CAEB machines designed for HAYMAKING.


Which machines can be used to move your round-balers?
Our round-balers can be adapted to mini-mowers, rotovators (any brand and model), towed by small tractors, or positioned on rubber tracks.


Are your machines suited to any type of ground?
Yes, our rotary baler machines can work on any ground, on flat and hilly ground, since the round-balers have a compact design.


Also in mountain areas with steep slopes?
Yes, also on hills and in mountain areas with steep slopes we have a round-baler model that can be positioned on rubber tracks.


I have a small tractor, can I use this tractor to tow your round-balers?
You can choose between three different models suitable for small tractors.


What are the dimensions of the bales?
The dimensions are as follows: 55x52 cm.


What is the weight of each bale?
The weight varies between 20 and 25 kg if hay is baled.  
The weight varies between 14 and 18 kg if straw is baled.


I have a meadow area that requires grass and leaves to be collected, can your machines help me?
The compact dimensions of our machines and their performance also solve, at best, problems which involve collecting leaves and grass.


I have a small stud farm and I need "single use" bales, can your machines solve the problem?
Our machines are already being used on stud farms, in view of the dimensions and the limited weight of the bales.


How long does the round-baler take to produce one bale?
On average 40 seconds is required to produce one bale of hay that weighs 20/25 kg.  This means an hourly hay production of 1,500 kg.


I have heard about a type of hay bale called "soft centre", what are the kind of hay bales produced using your machines?
The bales produced with our round-balers are "soft centre" bales.  The meaning is soon explained.  This type of bale has been pressed less at the centre.  And this enables the hay to have the right degree of transpiration avoiding the possible occurrence of moulds.


Do your round-balers press or cut and beat?
Our machines press.  They do not cut or beat.  And this enables the qualities of the hay remain whole, because the flowers and seeds are preserved.


Which solutions do you propose to bind the bales?
The CAEB INTERNATIONAL mini-wrapping machines, suitable for walk-behind tractors and small tractors, perform an important job of wrapping the fodder in cylindrical bales to be transformed into silage. We have three types of mini-binders.  The first type uses single-axle power units for its movements, the second type can be coupled to every type of tractor using a three-point linkage and the third type is equipped with an electric engine.


Do you have proposals to solve the problem of transporting the bales?
Yes, we can supply two models of trailers to load and transport bales and other agricultural materials. They can be easily towed and can be combined with all types of reversible motorcultivators and mini-mowers.
