Pöttinger out to Impress
with baler/wrapper combinations
Pöttinger has expanded its Impress round baler line with a new baler/
wrapper combination. The new models combine all the features of
the Impress range with a wrapping system with fully automatic settings,
thereby enabling high-speed baling and wrapping, according to
the company.
"The entirely new high-performance wrapping concept has been
specifically devised to match the high technical capacity of the baler.
Combined with brief stopping times, this guarantees maximum
productivity and cost-effectiveness. In addition, the wrapper is extremely
versatile: it can be adapted to the ideal film size according to bale
diameter (from 1.10m to 1.50m). This means that the bale can be wrapped
immediately after compaction which has a positive effect on the quality
of the silage. Two tasks (baling and wrapping) can be performed in a
single pass," a spokesperson said. The baler/wrapper combination is
available as a fixed-chamber baler (Impress 125FC PRO) and a variable
round baler (Impress 155VC PRO). It is operated directly from the terminal
(Power Control or Isobus). All functions can run automatically or can be
controlled directly from the control panel on the tractor. The operator can
choose between automatic and manual operation. A `double bale placing'
mode for hay and straw (for continuous loading) is also available. There is
a rear control panel for maintenance.
