Rancher 6640 Baler

Baler | Rancher 6640
The Vermeer Rancher® Balers are right-sized, right-priced and just right for your ranch. Designed for big bale performance and sensible budgets, the Rancher 6640 Baler produces larger-diameter round bales that can be easily moved and fed. And now, the next generation of Rancher Balers from Vermeer is here. With standard flotation tires (31x13.5L-15) and radial pin pickup clutch, the Rancher 6640 Baler is right for your ranch.

Features and Benefits

  • Standard flotation tires (31x13.5L-15) offer improved flotation for smoother handling on rough terrain over previous Rancher Baler models.
  • Radial pin clutch provides protection at the pickup for durability and reliability.
  • Haysaver wheels help clean up stray hay on the edges of the windrow, and the improved design makes adjustments simple with just a few turns of the wrench.
  • Right-sized bales 66" x 47” (168 cm x 119.4 cm) that are big enough for feeding yet easy to handle. Right-sized baler utilizes low horsepower tractors 50hp (37.3kW) for lower fuel consumption.
  • User-friendly baling operation with the standard Bale Expert™ monitor and optional Vermeer netwrap system, which is easy to load, feed and operate. See the specifications below for additional monitor functions.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
