Round Baler Wraps Bales In Chamber
Once a 4 by 4-ft. bale is formed, the top of the bale chamber raises up and film wrappers, attached to a ring around the entire baling chamber, apply six layers of plastic in less than 20 seconds. Once the bale is wrapped, the bale chamber lowers and the bale rolls gently to the ground.
The speed of the wrapping and ejection makes baling and wrapping almost as fast as baling alone with a conventional round baler, says Taarup.
The compact unit is less than 8 ft. high, about 9 ft. wide, and measures about 15 ft. from front to back.
