Kuhn VB7190 round baler: Gobble, gobble

We tested one of Kuhn’s pre-series VB7190 variable-chamber balers throughout last season in straw hay and a bit of silage ... to assess its potential. Read on to discover our findings

Kuhn introduced us to the VB variablechamber baler at Agritechnica 2019, and, while testing continued during 2020, we had the chance to use one of the pre-production VB7190 models, which produces an 80 to 185cm diameter bale. But the VB7190 model is not alone; there's also the VB7160 that knocks out a slightly smaller 80-160cm bale. And, in addition, there's a choice of two different chopping systems for both models or just a straight rotor feed version.
