KUHN Launches VB 560 5×6 Round Baler


Kuhn North America, Inc. is very excited to introduce the new KUHN VB 560 5×6 round baler, designed specifically for the North American market. The new KUHN VB 560 is one of the most efficient balers on the market. With industry-leading cycle times, thanks to the twin tensioning arm system and the fastest tailgate speed of any 5×6 baler, it offers the productivity needed to put up high-quality hay in tight weather windows.

The twin tension arms create rock solid bales that hold their shape for more efficient transport and storage. This baler includes KUHN’s proven front net wrap system, which is now easier than ever thanks to a new innovative loading support bracket. No matter if you’re baling dry hay, corn stalks, high-density baleage or anything in between, the VB 560 is ready to work for you!

Three intake solutions are available on the VB 560 to meet your needs, all of which are silage ready. The new TwinCharge intake excels in high capacity, high-productivity needs when baling straw, corn stalks or even soybean stubble. The OptiFeed system easily handles a range of crops from silage to dry hay and straw with the proven integral rotor. But, when it comes to no compromise cut hay, the Opticut 19 knife system easily processes the crop down to 2.8″ (7 cm) while baling at high capacities along with a no-fear drop floor.

Extreme durability of components means minimum downtime for maximum baling time. Thanks to its heavy-duty design, the balers provide you the robustness and reliability you need. KUHN VB 560 balers are ISOBUS compatible with an intuitive user interface, easy to control via the ISOBUS terminal of the tractor or via KUHN’s CCI 50, CCI 800 or CCI 1200 terminals. You can easily change settings such as bale density or net wrap layers from the comfort of your tractor seat.
