Abstract

See full text

A system includes a baling chamber designed to form a round bale and a tailgate rotatably coupled to the baling chamber. The tailgate rotates between a closed position that facilitates formation of the round bale and an open position that facilitates ejection of the round bale from the baling chamber. The system includes a ramp coupled to the baling chamber. The ramp is designed to receive the round bale upon ejection from the baling chamber and to direct the round bale away from the baling chamber to a cleared position on the ramp that enables the tailgate to rotate from the open position to the closed position without contacting the round bale. The system also includes a sensor coupled to a distal end of the ramp. The sensor is designed to detect presence of the round bale in the cleared position.
