Krone VariPack 190XC Plus round baler: Turning to belts

Customer demand has resulted in Krone joining the rest of the variable-chamber baler pack using belts to form the bale. The new VariPack will be offered alongside the Bellima, Fortima, Comprima and Comprima X-Treme slat and chain models. Two of the positive side effects of fitting belts are that the machine is lighter and quieter.
