Two technologies from KUHN are combined into one machine to create the VBP 3165 Variable BalePack. This baler-wrapper combination not only produces high-quality 4x5 round bales, but tightly wraps them providing maximum efficiency and prolonged silage quality preservation.
Two technologies from KUHN are combined into one machine to create the VBP 3165 Variable BalePack. This baler-wrapper combination begins with a standard VB 3165 variable chamber baler with an OptiCut integral rotor and merges it with an innovative wrapper system. The VBP 3165 with ISOBUS steering and multiple in-cab controlled functions is designed to work in the heaviest conditions even on hilly ground.
Fast and reliable bale transfer, combined with a high-speed, twin-satellite wrapping unit equipped with IntelliWrap, gives the Kuhn VBP BalePack the capacity to reach an output of up to 60 bales per hour.
Features may include:Optimal Crop Pickup
All VB 3100 models feature a wide pickup with standard crop roller. The pickup is designed to maximize the full capacity of the machine. With a working width of 91 inches, the machine is capable of working in all windrows and will not let you down, even in the toughest conditions. Straight pickup tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. The pickup roller compresses the crop against the pickup tines reducing friction, thus reducing leaf loss and increasing baler efficiency by evening out the windrow.Integral Rotor Technology
Patented Integral Rotor Technology found on the VBP 3165 baler-wrapper combination. This simple, low-maintenance intake system guarantees an enormous throughput capacity at all times. The short distance between rotor and pickup tines maintains consistent crop flow. The design of this force-fed intake makes higher forward speeds possible for increased productivity and reduces crop damage. The Integral Rotor on all models is provided with rotor tines made out of Hardox® wear plates. Hardox combines extreme hardness and toughness to reduce rotor tine wear. Longer wearing life of the rotor tines will help to provide time and money savings for the operator.Cutting, OptiCut Rotors
The OptiCut (OC) cutting rotors are designed for unlimited intake capacity and excellent cutting quality. KUHN (OC) cutting rotors, with elliptical shaped rotor tines, are acknowledged by users as one of the best cutting systems on the market. The silage is guided and drawn down to the knives from an early stage which improves flow and cutting performance and also prevents unwanted plugging. The VBP 3165 can be equipped with the OptiCut 14 or OptiCut 23 rotor to best suit your needs.
The Integral Rotor, with the 14-knife OptiCut system, is designed to even out the windrow and force-feed the crop into the baler for maximum throughput. The 14-knife OptiCut cutting system provides a theoretical cutting length of 2 ¾. Each single knife is spring protected against damage from foreign objects. With group selection (VB 3165 & 3195 models) the operator can choose to have 0, 4, 7, 7, or 14 knives in operation.
The Integral Rotor with the 23-knife OptiCut system from KUHN has the benefits of intensive cutting and mechanical protection. The 23-knife OptiCut system provides a theoretical cutting length of 1 ¾. Each single knife is spring protected against damage from foreign objects. With group selection the operator can choose to have 0, 7, 11, 12, or 23 knives in operation.
