Product Overview

Get big time hay production from your compact tractor! Abbriata square balers can produce up to 400 bales per hour, and you only need a 20+ horsepower tractor to operate them. Quality Italian manufacturing ensures reliable service and maximum durability. These balers are crafted for commercial use in the mountains of Northern Italy, but will be just as at home on your farm!

Purchase includes two spools of polypropylene twine.


Tractor Tools Direct is proud to offer the Abbriata line of square balers. These are heavy duty machines that can be operated by your existing 20+ horsepower compact tractor.

Square balers give you the highest production rate because you never have to stop to tie a bale as you would with a round baler. The machine continuously ties and drops the bales out the back. And while traditional square balers require a tractor of 40 horsepower or more, Abbriata has changed the design slightly to allow you to bale with a tractor as small as 20 horsepower. Though the design is very similar to the original International Harvester design still in use by most manufacturers, it differs in a few important ways. Aside from the width of the pickup, these balers make a slightly smaller bale (hardly noticeable to most people). The plunger compresses the hay with more strokes per minute, meaning less hay is compressed with each stroke, allowing operation with less horsepower.

Abbriata has been in business for over 100 years and was the first company in Europe to develop both the mini round baler and the square baler. They make a commercial-duty, reliable machines that will give you years of trouble-free service.
