The Original Rebel

Apr 09, 2009
Ten years ago Vermeer differentiated their baler models and introduced the Rebel balers. The company recently reconnected with the very first owner of a Rebel baler. Scott Grey owns and still makes hay today with a Vermeer Rebel with the serial number 101. He works full time as a HVAC specialist for Delta Airlines, but he also maintains a small farm southwest of Atlanta.
Grey was making square bales for his horses, but then he bought the Rebel in July 1999 from a sales rep from Outdoor Power Equipment. He had been looking for a round baler that could operate with a 40 hp tractor for two years before the Rebel was introduced. This year he replaced all the chains, some bearings and the haysaver wheels, but the belts are original although they’ve been shortened just enough to put new hooks in for re-lacing. He says his only complaint with the machine is more storage for string.

Love my hitch and go Rebel. Now Vermeer sells it with netwrap.

Looks like he is making some nice tight bales. A handy little baler for a small farm operation, and maybe even bigger.
