The KN618 picks up the bales 6 wide and 3 long on edge using 36 teeth on 6 bars. The operator approaches the bale group with a strand of twine already stretched across the back plate of the Tie-Grabber. The hydraulic squeeze bar ensures the group is packed tightly together before the teeth are set. After the teeth are set, the arm completes the rotation around the group and the knotter ties the twine tight, ensuring stable transportation to storage. The KN618 handles 14×18” bales 32″- 36″ long with no adjustments. If you want your bales longer than 36″, an extended version of this model is available.
