The innovative design of the accumulator allows it to be fully automatic without the use of hydraulics or electronics. Using excess energy from the baler plunger, the bales are pushed up and out the top of the front chute. There is no extra pressure applied to the plunger and the chute does not deform the bales. As gravity moves the bales downward, the last bale in each row swings a gate to open the next row. The last bale in the grab opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights automatically return all the gates back to their starting position, ready for the next bale.
The Kuhns Hay Accumulator is built from the ground up as a durable machine. The concept has logged thousands of hours in many different areas, terrains, and types of hay with exceptional customer satisfaction.
Set up your baler in 4 easy steps: bolt on the bale chamber extension, adjust the hitch to the correct position, trim the guide belt to the proper length, and loosen the pressure in the bale chamber to compensate for the back pressure caused by pushing the bales up the chute.
The Baler Efficiency Calculator has been preloaded with default values from an average hay operation. Change the numbers in Red to customize the calculator to your operation. This will demonstrate how changing from a pulled wagon to an Accumulator and Grabber System will increase the daily output of your baler.
