German term or phrase: Ballenkammer/Ballenwippe
The following text describes a problem with a round baler:
Bei hohem Futteraukommen verklemmt sich der Ballen in der Ballenkammer. Das Problem wurde mit Einbau eines Schalters in die Ballenwippe gelöst, wenn der Ballen über die Wippe rollt, erklingt in der Maschine ein Signal und die Ballenkammer ist leer.
Does anyone know the correct terms for Ballenkammer and Ballenwippe?

Ballenkammer = baler; Ballenwippe = tipping cradle
Explanation:
I have just translated a similar text and the baler is the chamber where the material is pressed. My englich reference calls it only baler,
Ballenwippe is a cradle into where the bale rolls after pressing, this cradle transports the bale further on to the wrapping table and tip in two directions.

Hope this helps

bale tongs / bale clamp / chute


Explanation:
Ballenkammer should be "Ballenklammer" (Typo)
"Ballenklammer" = bale tongs
Wippe = chute or bale chute. Thats the adjustable chute, usually hung from a chain, over which the bales are transpoprted to a truck or carriage.

bale chamber/bale tipper


Explanation:
please see Vesna-Z's answer. There are many urls for bale chamber.

as far as the Wippe is concerned, I believe that 'tilt' comes close to the seesaw.

Check this out:

Good luck!

bale chamber, bale size indicator


Explanation:
I basically agree with Vesna-Z above,
The function of the Ballenwippe sounds like a dancer (Tänzer) used to sense the size or tension of a roll of stock, but no hits together with bale chamber.
If you feel uncomfortable with a translation of Wippe, just just mention the switch, such as bale size switch, bale oversize warning switch. It is obvious, that the switch must be avtivated by some kind of floating arm. In fact eveything inside the baling chamber floats, moves, rocks or expands as the bale is formed.

Did work with Massey Ferguson equipment.
