Less than six months after it was introduced in Europe, the KUHN VB 7100 series of round balers had already won two prizes.
First, this high-performance baler was awarded a Silver Spike (Zilveren Aar) at Agribex 2019 in Belgium. Then the VB 7100 went on to win a gold medal at Polagra Premiery 2020 in Poland.
The juries of both prizes praised the innovative i-DENSE system that automatically controls the pressure.
The patented i-DENSE system relies on a twin tension arm system and moisture sensor measurements, which automatically adjust the baling pressure according to the different types of crop and crop conditions without the operator having to intervene. In other words, the drier the crop, the higher the pressure. This results in heavy bales with densities of up to 140 kg/m3 in straw.
