Vermeer’s goal is to constantly improve conditions for farmers and make their lives easier through innovative products. The Z-R5 self-propelled baler is the first of its kind and is a game-changer when it comes to large-scale hay baling. It automates parts of the process and makes it possible to make adjustments in real time according to the field, crop and operator input. With the Z-R5, baling a whole field is not only much faster but also more comfortable thanks to independent front suspension and zero radius turning. Once one line is completed you can simply make a smooth U-turn and move on to the next one. Integrated quarter-turn technology means that positioning the baler for quicker pickup is also easier and the process can be up to 35% faster. The maximum speed on the road is 30+ miles per hour, so driving home after baling is also a more enjoyable experience.
