Kuhn unveils new VB

The new VB 7100 round balers from Kuhn, featuring the patented i-DENSE system, are all about high performance


The release of the Kuhn VB 7100 series round baler is aimed at farmers and contractors looking for a high-performance baler that creates extremely dense bales.

The new variable chamber round balers create bales of up to 140kg/m3 and give a capacity of up to 30 tonnes per hour in various crop conditions.

Intelligent density system i-DENSE

The VB 7100 series features the new KUHN patented* system i-DENSE. This intelligent twin tension arm system provides bale densities of up to 140kg/m3 in straw. In combination with the measurements of the moisture sensor, it automatically adapts the baling pressure according to the different crops and crop conditions.

High capacity

The unique mix of the i-DENSE system and the proven four belt and three roller design of the bale chamber ensures fast, consistent bale formation in any crop condition, even in silage baling. The Kuhn invented Integral Rotor ensures the best possible crop flow.

The VB 7100 balers feature the fastest tailgate operation in the market. Within four seconds, the bale is ejected and the tailgate is closed again.

Maximum lifetime, minimum downtime

Thanks to its heavy-duty design, the VB 7100 series balers provide robustness and reliability. Four baler belts ensure optimal track and bale formation. Wear-resistant and oversize chains are greased with an automatic continuous chain greasing system. The rotor tines are made out of Hardox® wear plate.

Ease of use is key

Ease of use is a focal point in the design of this new Kuhn baler. The operator can focus on driving while the baler takes control of the baling density and the balers’ power consumption. All this, including the moisture indication and many other data points can be monitored on the ISOBUS display terminal. 

The net binding system can be loaded from both sides of the machine. The net is slid easily from the net storage into the net binder without lifting the entire roll. Moreover, the operator can load the net roll while standing safely on the ground. Switching between the different sets of knives is easy when using Kuhn’s proven Group Selection technology.

The two models in the VB 7100 series – the 7160 and 7190 – produce 1.60-metre and 1.85-metre round bales. Both are fully ISOBUS compatible; the intuitive user interface can be displayed on an ISOBUS tractor terminal or on CCI 50 or CCI 1200 terminals supplied by Kuhn.
