The Kuhns Accumulator Advantage

The Kuhns hay accumulator can handle bales from 32" to 44" long and whatever density is needed with no adjustments. You can make your bales the way you want them, Kuhns Mfg can help you handle them.


This hay accumulator differs from many others in that all you need to hook up is a hitch pin. It's simple, no wires, cables, or hydraulics to hook up. It is so simple, you'll wonder why you didn't think of it yourself.

Fully Automatic:

The innovative design of the accumulator allows it to be fully automatic without the use of hydraulics or electronics. It works, using excess energy from the baler plunger to push the bales to the top of the front chute. Then, as gravity moves the bales downward, the last bale in each row swings a door to open the next row.

The last bale in the grab opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights return all of the gates back to their starting position, ready for another grab in good time before the next bale comes. Zero user intervention required.

All you need to do to setup the baler is ensure correct hitch-pin position and loosen the pressure in the bale chamber to compensate for the back pressure caused by pushing the bales up the chute. There is no extra pressure applied to the plunger and the twisting action of the chute does not deform the bales. Feel free to ask for an Information Pack that includes a DVD with videos of our accumulator working in the field.
