A bale evacuator is a machine that automatically takes the bales out of a press. It consists of a moveable frame and a tilting mechanism with fork. The frame moves forward and the tilted fork slides in the grooves of the lower pressing plate. After that, the tilting mechanism tilts the fork with the bale. Depending on the layout, the bales can be evacuated in line or at an angle of 90°. In this last situation, the bale evacuator is equipped with an integrated belt conveyor.
