Silage Bale Wrapper Handles Any Size Bale
Thanks to its adjustable squeeze chute, it can handle round bales, big square bales and cover small square bales stacked in piles.
The "Master-Wrap" is powered by a 20 hp Kohler engine. It adapts to different size bales by simply readjusting five bolts in the squeeze chute, the company says.
It's equipped with a 14 gpm hydraulic pump to operate a 6-ft. cylinder that operates a bale pusher. Its steering and unloading system, which lowers it to the ground for wrapping and raises it to 20 in. off the ground for transport, is also hydraulically operated.
Two 30-in. plastic dispensers are chain-driven by a roller chain.
Fold-down loading chutes on both sides allow you to load the machine from either side. Chutes latch in up position for trans-port.
It rides on 12 or 16-in. rubber wheels. It measures 17 ft. long by 8 ft. wide by 8 ft. high and weighs 4,500 lbs.
Sells for $13,900. Pto-driven models also available.
