Vermeer Introduces BPX9000 Bale Processor

Melissa SandfortCompany Announcement, Equipment

The all-new BPX9000 Bale Processor from Vermeer combines simplicity, durability and versatility to meet the needs of today’s cattle producers. The easy to operate machine is built tough with a unique, T-style frame, the bed design and offset rotor produce even and consistent feed with minimal maintenance, and an optional large square bale kit includes enhancements to effectively process a variety of bales. The BPX9000 is built to maximize bale processing and minimize operator stress.

The BPX9000’s slat and chain bed and positive bale feeding improve bale rotation, feeding bales more consistently into the rotor, while reducing the need for operators to reverse rotation of the bale when feeding. The split shaft in the bed allows for easier maintenance without removing the entire bed, and long-lasting bushings in the bed are resistant to net and twine wrapping.

In addition, the bale processor’s offset rotor feeds material with less slugging, for a consistent cut length and higher quality feed. With exclusive cut control bars in combination with the self-cleaning rotor, excessive build-up of net and twine on the drum is eliminated. The rotor can also be manually cleaned, with easy access through a sideaccess door.
