Finding the right square baler
just got a lot easier

Introducing the classifications
for square balers

8 classes of balers
based on your operation &
the size & density
of the bales you need

Hesston Balers
 
 
 
 

The following classification system is based on a precise calculation, measured in kilonewtons (kN) – of the force applied to the bale by the face of the plunger. The more force, the denser the bale, the higher the classification number.

No other manufacturer offers such a complete line of square balers capable of meeting the demands of the smallest hobby farmers and the largest biomass operations, and everything in between.
