Baling technology, collection, and transportation

Baling technology includes a lot of different things, but they’re all focused on one and the same thing – taking hay, straw, or grass, and turning them into wrapped bales. It all starts with the simple process of cutting your grass: after turning it into straw or hay, depending on what exactly you are cutting, this can be collected into all sorts of different machinery. You can choose from loading wagons, forage harvesters with a special heading, or, in this case – a baler.

Bales are the most convenient option to store, load, and transport. One bale has a capacity of 4,000 liters, and it can be easily stacked, as they’re usually either cubes or cylinders. So, it’s no surprise that many FS25 choose baling technology as their primary choice.

In this article, we will talk about three main things:

  • Baling machinery
  • Bale collection
  • Bale transportation

Let’s see what machines you should use, and how everything works.

Baling machinery

In FS25, these are the three machines that are best suited for bale making:

  • KUHN LSB 1290 D – this KUHN baler is used to make square bales. Such bales are the best for being picked up with a loading wagon.
  • New Holland Roll-Belt 150 – this baler is a lot less efficient, but it’s an okay option if you’re looking to make cylindrical bales.
  • KUHN FBP 3135 – this baler is an excellent option because of its additional features. For one, it can place the bale at the back of the vehicle and not on the ground, and also, the bales can be unloaded two at the time, which makes the whole collection process a lot faster. You can also automatically wrap your bales, which means that they’ll turn to silage in just 24 hours.

If you’re looking to make silage but don’t want to buy the KUHN, or you already use a different machine, get yourself a KUHN SW 4014. It wraps both square and cylindrical bales as they’re simply placed on the ground.

Bale collection

Once your bales are made, you will need to collect them. These are the best options for collecting cubical bales:

  • Arcusin ForStack 8.12 – this machine allows you to pick up to three bales, and unload them at any spot, in a vertical stack. It’s a very neat experience that lets you store things efficiently. Good for smaller farms.
  • Arcusin FSX 63.72 – this is a better option for large farms. It can pick up to 16 bales, and easily unload them to a semi-trailer. If you have a big farm, this model is a real time saver. The same applies to storing the bales as well.

If you choose to use cylindrical bales, these are you top options:

  • Fliegl Schmetterling – this is our top pick for FS25. This Fliegl simply attaches to your tractor, and lets you transport a cylindrical bale wherever you want it. The bales can also get squeezed, which makes the transportation a little easier and more reliable. From personal experience, just like in real life, this takes some time to master. But when you do, it actually works wonderfully with KUHN FBP 3135, letting you unload two bales in close proximity.
  • Front loader attachments – not wheel loaders, but front loaders, have wheel attachments that let you easily collect and load bales. You can choose from attachments with rollers that easily pick up cylindrical bales, as well as handlers that work on both types of bale. You can pick up two bales at one time, and the same attachment works just fine with pallets as well.

Bale transportation

In order to transport bales, you can choose from a wide selection of trailers. An option like a Strautmann SEK 802 is by far the cheapest pick that is great for a small farm, because it efficiently moves a smaller number of bales.

If you have a bigger operation, an option like a Fliegl DPW 210 is a great choice. It’s a cage trailer, meaning you can stack a lot of bales on it, but not have to worry about the accidental falling during loading and moving. It works on just about any vehicle, just make sure you have enough power. Of course, this trailer can transport pallets as well.

For a bit of a wildcard, we suggest a Stepa FHL 13 AK. It can be found in the Forestry Equipment category, but it’s obviously good for bales, as there’s an undercarriage for cylindrical bales and a very functional gripping claw.

And finally, a low-bed trailer such as a Goldhofer STZ-VP 3 massively reduces the weight center of your carriage, also reducing the chances the bales will fall off.
