Chain-Loaded Bale Wrapper
“Other wrappers use a hydraulic cylinder to push the bale through the wrapper. Ours uses a web chain instead of a hydraulic cylinder to push the bale forward, which works much faster,” says Richard Kuhns, Kemco. “When the operator sets bale on the wrapper, it starts the web chain which moves the bale forward. Meanwhile, he can load the next bale without having to wait for a cylinder to retract. This ‘no-cycle’ time savings is what makes this the fastest wrapper on the market.”
Big square or round bales can be wrapped with the same machine. “You can wrap up to 180 round bales or more than 200 big square bales per hour,” says Kuhns.
According to the company, the wrapper offers other advantages, too. The machine has a heavy-duty steel frame that should last for years. It can handle 3 or 4 rolls of plastic instead of 2, which lets you wrap more bales before stopping to refill. A storage box lets you keep 6 extra rolls of plastic with the wrapper.
Options include a large 20 hp. Honda engine, 5-gal. gas tank, LED night lights, remote control, film sensor switch, self-propelled drive and heavy-duty tailgate that will lift bales while they’re still on the tailgate, allowing you to start your next row of bales without having to clean out the wrapper.
