Manual of the FORTSCHRITT high-density baler K453 Manual of the FORTSCHRITT high-density baler K453

A brand with history

The FORTSCHRITT high-density baler is still produced in the 1854 founded
“C.A. Klinger Maschinenfabrik ” in Stolpen: FORTSCHRITT with Tradition – then and now.

After 1945, the Maschinenfabrik Stolpen was nationalized along with four other farm equipment factories in the area of East Saxony. These establishments constitute the VEB/Kombinat crop machinery FORTSCHRITT – and so the largest manufacturers of agricultural machinery in the DDR from 1960. Main priorities of the VEB/Kombinat FORTSCHRITT were in the development and manufacturing of harvesting equipment such as forage harvester, swather, combine harvester and Pick-up balers. The production program further included also equipment for tillage, seeding, fertilization and care comprised up to storage and processing of agricultural products.

With the reunification of East and West Germany theVEB/Kombinat FORTSCHRITT was divided among the trusteeship in 53 limited companies based on market economy principles, and the FORTSCHRITT era came to an end.

In 2013 the ARNEUBA Landtechnik und Fahrzeuge GmbH with its headquarter in Schlettau (Erzgebirge) and the Maschinenfabrik Stolpen GmbH (formerly manufacturer for VEB/Kombinat FORTSCHRITT – crop machinery) decided to produce Agricultural Machinery again under the name of FORTSCHRITT.

First, the former high-density baler K454 has been revived and undergone consistent further development. The new high-density baler K464 combines proven tradition with meaningful innovations. Even today the characteristics of reliability and performance are our main priorities.

Contact partner for national and international sales is ARNEUBA Landtechnik und Fahrzeuge GmbH (Germany).

Silage Compactor

Safe your time - evenly compressed silage all over the whole working width after only one rolling
Increase your profits - production of high quality silage at high stockpiling
Built for a lifetime - the silage compactor is robust, lowwear and durable

Advantages using the Silage Compactor:

  • evenly compressed silage all over the whole working width (2.10 – 3.50m) after only one rolling
  • production of high quality silage at high stockpiling
  • dense compaction even under poor conditions (high DM content, moist forage)
  • less diesel consumption due to less rolling
  • high operational safety for vehicles rolling the heap
  • less spots with poor fermentation on the sides of silage piles
  • better compaction of sides of heaps outside of pit silos
  • no damage of silo structure like when using vibratory asphalt or soil compactors
  • the silage compactor is robust, lowwear and durable
  • minimal inspection work (greasing of only 2 floating bearings)
  • minor loss during ensiling and emptying
