One machine to take on all takers!

Bridgeview’s Bale King 8200 Combination Processor!

The 8200 gives you excellent processing flexibility, handling both 6.5′ round bales and 4′ x 4′ x 8′ bales equally well. The 8200 is the new and improved 8100 available in 2017.

It’s hydraulically actuated curved wing manhandles heavy squares with ease and folds up for a narrow transport profile.

The 8200 is built on the proven technology of the popular 5100 and features our patented and reliable X-Rotor for easy twine removal.

The Bale King 8200 is available from our dealers. Call Bridgeview for more information.

Standard Features

8100 abc
A) The 8200’s hydraulically actuated wing panel permits processing of round or square bales. You don’t even have to leave the cab to make the switch! The wing is great for manhandling stubborn or frozen bales for better rotor feeding.

B) A widened wheelbase gives better stability on rough terrain when the wing is loaded.

C) Heavy-duty loading forks can be driven deep into hard ground or snow to pick up bales from underneath, avoiding the problem of frozen bales disintegrating when lifted with the forks driven into them.

D) Bolted clevis adjusts to your tractor’s hitch height to keep the 8200 nice and level.

E) Direct drive spins the flail tips at up to 7,000 feet per minute! Chainless and beltless design gives the 8200 robustness that’s hard to match.

F) Standard powder coat paint keeps your investment looking like new through years of regular use.

G) All Bale King processors come with standard road lights, reflectors, and SMV signage.

H) Twin lift cylinders lift bales fast to save you time. The 8200 handles the heaviest bales with ease.

I) Hydraulic deflector enables switching from windrow-feeding mode to long distance bedding mode in seconds. Make neat rows or throw straw 60′ (or anything in-between), the choice is yours!

J) Heavy steel hoop grates can be raised and lowered to adjust cutting aggressiveness. Typical 6.5″ round bale processing time should be 90-120 seconds.

K) You will not find one belt or chain on the 8200, a design decision which eliminates two major causes of processor failure. All powered components are driven either hydraulically or by the PTO.

L) Hydraulic agitators with big big paddles grip and rip the bale, turning it more reliably than chains or cradles to prevent bridging.

M) The X-Rotor, Crown Jewel of the Bale King! The X-Rotor was designed to eliminate the frustration of twine removal endemic to round rotors. The X-shape allows the standard twine cutter (or any knife or iron) to easily cut the twine from behind.

N) Heavy duty 3/4″ flails are welded to their bushings, not formed like those other guys do it. Every flail is subject to serious QC measures before it leaves Bridgeview’s hands.

O) Every X-Rotor is harmonically balanced to high precision, meaning less noise and smoother operation.


8100 Fine Chop
Fine Chop Kit – The Fine Chop Kit is an option available when ordering your 8200 processor and adds the adjustable ability to chop material even finer!

The kit adds a row of adjustable-height knives which protrude into the rotor chamber for exceptional control of processor aggressiveness.

The Fine Chop Kit is highly desirable when processing long greenfeed or silage. Need to process straw? Dropping the knives to their lowest level (no tools required!) returns the processor to the stock setting.

The Fine Chop Kit can be installed by the user or can be installed to order. Contact Bridgeview for more information.




All specifications are also available in the 8200’s Operator’s manual. Contact Bridgeview for more information.
