2018 New Product Spotlight: 504 R-Series Balers

For decades, Vermeer has designed and built balers that meet the varying needs of farmers and ranchers — no matter how large or small. The way producers harvest hay has evolved through the years. Holding steady through it all, however, is the way Vermeer innovates new hay and forage tools. Founder Gary Vermeer’s philosophy continues to drive Vermeer product innovation: Find a need and fill that need with a product built to last.

Vermeer 504 R-series balers continue the legacy of convenience and more unique features than ever before. The 504 R-series baler line-up includes a baler for every kind of hay producer, from part-time operators putting up a few hundred bales per year, to full-time operators chasing records for productivity.

 

504R Classic

We know that small beef producers or part-time farmers need to put up hay, though it doesn’t require a baler equipped with all the bells and whistles. With minimal set up required and an affordable price point, this is the full-time baler for part-time operators.
3-Year Pickup Warranty

Covers specified internal components and includes parts and labor. Operators can rest assured knowing the pickup is backed by Vermeer parts and service.

Atlas™ Control System

The simple and intuitive package comes with a 4.3-in color touchscreen to display everything needed to bale and allow operators to enter field statistics to track bales per hour and average bale size.

Camless Wide Pickup

With no cam tracks or follower bearings, this pickup features fewer moving parts to help reduce maintenance and prolong the life of the machine.

Aggressive Rotor

Helps create positive bale starts by feeding crop onto rotating belts and into the chamber for bale formation. Together with the camless wide pickup, this forms square shouldered, dense bales.

Steel Windguard Roller

Designed to smooth out crop before it enters the pickup, even in less than ideal windrows.

 

504R Signature

Built for the full-time workingman, the 504R Signature is the even blend of convenience, ease-of-use and durability. The Signature name says it all—this baler advances the Gary Vermeer legacy of round balers with expert engineering and innovative technology.

Moisture Sensors

Real-time moisture sensors come standard to provide real-time moisture readings via the Atlas™ control system, giving operators access to real-time and field-average moisture information in the tractor cab.

Durable Components

The three main drive chains are made with 80 diamond chain to help minimize chain maintenance. The upper and lower drive bearings have a 33 percent higher load rating compared to the 504N while the clutch’s maximum torque rating is 32 percent higher than previous models. Durable components allow operators to efficiently bale dry or wet hay.

5-Bar Camless Wide Pickup

This durable, 5-bar pickup is equipped with steel teeth. With no cam tracks or follower bearings, this pickup allows for smoother, quieter operation when compared to previous models. Combined with the aggressive rotor, it forms square-shouldered, dense bales.

3-Year Pickup Warranty

Covers specified internal components and includes parts and labor. Operators can rest assured knowing the pickup is backed by Vermeer parts and service.

Bale Shape Indicators

Standard bale shape feedback indicators help operators navigate the windrow to make a tight, evenly-packed bale.

 

504R Premium

A high output baler with advanced, yet simple technology — and it comes from the factory silage-ready. The Premium baler is ready to provide a first-class baling experience with added features to increase productivity and measure return on investment. This baler is meant for the serious hay producer ready to put up massive crop.

Hydraulic Pickup

A hydraulic pickup lift provides convenience for operators switching between multiple fields in a day. This feature gives the operator the ability to lift and lower the pickup without getting out of the cab.

Silage Ready

With a silage kit installed at the factory, plus heavy-duty components and durable belts, this baler is ready for operators who want the flexibility to bale dry or high-moisture hay.

Increased Capacity

For baling at a quick, efficient pace, the 504R Premium can out-bale the other 504R balers. Starting with the increased pickup speed and ending with a faster tie cycle, compared to the 504R Signature, this baler can handle the intense pace of a full-time 5 ft x 4 ft operator.

Available Auto-Lube Greasing System

Designed to provide automatic lubrication to critical bearings at user-defined intervals set through the control system.

3-Year Pickup Warranty

Covers specified internal components and includes parts and labor. Operators can rest assured knowing the pickup is backed by Vermeer parts and service.

Available Endless Belts

Made with layers of synthetic material plus rubber layers to provide extra durability when baling heavy, dense, high-moisture bales. When there are no laces to fail, operators can minimize maintenance and increase longevity.
