Self-Propelled Bale Wrapper
"The only problem is, we can't build them fast enough," says William E. Ramer about the speedy, self-propelled round bale wrap-per his company builds.
The Corry Roll-Off is powered by an industrial Briggs and Stratton 5 hp, 1,400-hour engine, coupled to a Barnes two-stage hydraulic pump. There's a single 12-in. drive wheel in front and a control box in front of it runs the machine.
The machine's adjustable lift arm picks up bales and places them on the table where they're wrapped with a double speed wrap-ping mechanism before being tipped gently back onto the ground.
"It takes one operator only 35 seconds to complete the operation, then move on to the next bale, walking beside the ma-chine," Ramer notes.
The machine is capable of lifting 2,800 lbs. It has a tongue for towing behind any 1/ 2-ton pickup. A rear, 3,500-lb. capacity, bridge axle fitted with 10-in. flotation tires allows towing at highway speeds to the next field.
Basic unit sells for $13,800. Optional Vanguard or Honda 9 hp., 2,100-hour engine, plus Halogen headlight for night operation, is $600 extra.
The 300C is also available in limited quantities with square bale-wrapping capability.
A new unit with seat, called the 300C Easy Rider, will be in full production next season.
