New Unstoppable Density Adjustor Means No More Stopping to Adjust Bale Density

January 4, 2010 09:32 AM

MONTAGUE, Mich.—Small square baler owners can now control the density of bales from the tractor on the go. The Scott Seaver Co. LLC, manufacturer of Airbaler density control systems for small square balers, introduces its new Unstoppable Density Adjustor.

The Unstoppable Density Adjustor is an enhancement to the Airbaler system, which was introduced in 2007 and is now in use by hay growers across the United States and Canada.

The new adjustor includes an air compressor mounted on the baler and a switch mounted in the tractor cab that allows the operator to increase or decrease the density of bales without even slowing down. On-the-go density control is a big plus for small square baler owners who now must either stop and adjust tension at the bale chamber or put up with making bales that are often too tight or too loose.

Bales that are of consistent size and weight stack and ship better, providing hay buyers with added value.
Airbaler solves this problem by using air pressure instead of springs or hydraulics to ensure that tension applied to the bale chamber remains nearly constant. And now with addition of Unstoppable Density Adjustor, baler operators can manually adjust the tension with the flip of a switch from the cab of their tractor that adds or removes air pressure from the system.

"As a hay grower myself, I know it's important to maximize the seemingly short window of time where the moisture is just right to make great-quality hay bales,” says Scott Seaver, inventor of the Airbaler. "With the Adjustor in the cab of my tractor, I never have to stop to adjust the air pressure in the system.”

The Airbaler system is not just another method to adjust bale tension. It is a complete bale density control system for small square balers that replaces spring or hydraulic systems. It's the only density control system that uses air pressure to maintain uniform tension on the bale chamber—which is the key to maintaining consistent bale density. In a recent customer survey, 100% of Airbaler users responding report an improvement in bale density and 98% said they would recommend the Airbaler to others.

The Airbaler system works on all small-square balers and is available only by contacting the Scott Seaver Co. To obtain more information, go to or phone (231) 981-0031. The Web site contains technical information, comments from owners and pricing.
