ZR5: Field Files — Operator Productivity | Vermeer Agriculture Equipment


(upbeat music) – Ran it up against the two
tractors and six of five ends running, they did 150 bales
in the same amount of time as what I did 130 with the ZR5. I would say you’re better
off to buy a ZR5 than buy two tractors and two
balers, it’s gonna be a lot more feasible in the
long run and you’ve got everything mated together
to where you got power that you need and just,
everything works better. It was a whole new experience. – We make about six to
seven thousand stock bales which are really hard on
balers so we’ve gone to Vermeer with that, it outperformed
our regular Vermeer balers by probably 50 bales
in a three and a half hour period, so it really
did a great job for us. The simplicity of it, I
mean all you did was you sat in the cab, it tied it all
for you, it did everything for you, you didn’t have
to roll into your windrows, it stopped automatically,
it tied, it dumped it and you hit go and you’re
off again, it was just a real simple process. – It’s quite the machine. The efficiency rating of
it was I thought the most impressive that I was
getting normally about three acres with my traditional
tractor baler systems, where this system I was
getting four acres by the time they got done with their three acres. And that’s within a 10,
15 minute span, so you’re getting an extra acre
every 15, 20 minutes. It stops, it wraps, turns
a quarter turn if you want the option, it spits the bale
out and you push a button and away you’re going
again, you know 10, 11 mile an hour. I see the ZR5 as not quite
replacing two of my balers but it does increase it by a
baler and a half hands down. – Having the ZR5 on
this operation is a very good deal, we use such
a large quantity of corn stock bales, saves wear
and tear on our tractors and equipment, we can
bale a little faster, get everything done we need to. You got more clearance under
the front end or you can run bigger windrows through,
and on a tractor you’re only limited to so big. Go under the draw bar and
anything like that, this machine here would just
eat up as much as you could shove in it.
