Check out the Krone Comprima V 150 XC X-Treme baler in action in this short video from our mates across the ditch at New Farm Machinery.

The new V 150 XC X-treme has heavier duty chains and sprockets, dual bearings instead of single bearings and a beefed up chassis and walking beam axle assembly with four 500/50-17 floatation tyres.

These modifications have increased the weight of the X-treme baler by about half a tonne on its predecessor the Comprima V 150 XC. It is a variable chamber baler that rolls out bales up to 150cm in diameter.

The V150XC is the first round baler to utilise a camless pick-up. Manks also selected the optional 17 knife rotor cuter. Krone has developed NovoGrip which connects the steel slats to endless rubber/fabric belts.

The X-treme baler has its own brakes and requires two sets of hydraulic remotes and a dump valve. A 90hp (67kW) tractor would be sufficient to run the baler however in hilly country I reckon around 120hp or 130hp (89.5kW or 96.9kW) might be a safer option.
