Pöttinger’s Impress baler range has several interesting features, such as its pull-out knife bank and upward spinning rotor. To find out if these and other items make a difference, we’ve been operating a variable-chamber Impress 155VC Pro

When it comes to variablechamber balers, Pöttinger has two sizes to pick from: the aptly named Impress 155VC, which produces a 0.80m to 1.55m diameter bale; and the 185VC that goes up to 1.85m. Both models are offered in two spec levels — the Master versions are aimed at farmers, whilst Pro spec will appeal to those with a larger workload.
