Front-Mount Big Bale Wrapper
New front-mount bale wrapper eliminates the need for a second tractor to handle bales and gives the operator a clearer view of the job, according to the manufacturer, Opico Ltd. of Bourne, England.
It fits front-end loaders with minimum lift capacity of 2,500 lbs. and will handle bales up to 2,000lbs. Bales are picked up by tilting the wrapper so the roller table is flat across the back of the bale. A grab arm squeezes the bale and then the roller table drops down so it's under the bale. Plastic comes off a roller on an arm that rotates around the bale. Plastic is started and also cut automatically so the operator never has to get off the tractor. As the arm rotates around the bale, the bale is rotated by the roller table.
The hydraulically-driven wrapper is controlled electrically from the cab. Sells for about $8,000.
