Kverneland's
unique FastBale
The art of round baling took a massive
leap forward with the unveiling of
FastBale a revolutionary non-stop
round baler wrapper combination that
cleverly integrates a main chamber
and a pre-chamber, which is about
two-thirds of the size of the main
chamber and a wrapper. Baling starts
in the conventional manner with the
main chamber producing the first bale.
However, once the bale is fully formed,
instead of having to stop to apply the
net or film, FastBale diverts the crop
flow to the pre-chamber. This allows
the net or film to be applied to the
bale in the main chamber and for the
bale to be ejected onto the wrapper.
When the pre-chamber is full, the
incoming crop flow, together with
the pre-compressed crop, are both
then transferred into the main bale
chamber. Here, the bale is formed to its
final size and density.
FastBale's pick-up is equipped with
5 tine bars, with each bar supported
by two intermediate bearings, while
a cam track at both ends reduces
cam loadings by 50 per cent, giving
assured long term durablity. A unique
internal drive system keeps overall
width to a minimum, with the result
that pick-up guide wheels do not need
to be removed or folded for transport,
reducing unproductive time between
jobs.
Complex bale transfer systems have
been completely eliminated. The
wrapper is lowered to receive the bale
directly from the main bale chamber.
The wrap-around main frame also
avoids any risk of a bale being lost over
the back of the wrapper when working
on sloping land, improving operational
safety compared to other systems.
FastBale has a unique method of
discharging the wrapped bale. When
wrapping is complete, the rear roller is
lifted. This gently places the bale onto
the ground, rather than rolling it o
the wrapping table, greatly reducing
the risk of the bale rolling away when
working on sloping land.
Grizzly WrapMaster hits Irish market
Laois-based machinery dealership Bailey Machinery Sales
Ltd (BMS) have just launched the all new Grizzly WrapMaster
into the Irish market ahead of this year's bailing and wrapping
campaign. The concept of the WrapMaster is the brainchild of
UK agri contractor and engineer Joe Grills who designed the
WrapMaster to meet the demands of modern bailing contractors
for increased capacity of wrap and net. "I initially started by
designing and manufacturing a unit for our local contractor who
wanted to increase their capacity with the bailing operation, they
were so happy with how the WrapMaster preformed they now
run two units, customers are constantly looking to carry more
wrap and net with them which allows them to continue working
without unnecessary downtime having to restock net and wrap
which often means travelling away from the work field" explains
Joe.
The unit itself is manufactured from heavy duty 80x80x5mm
box section and 10mm plate for increased strength which is vital
for modern day contracting. To keep the wrap secure there are
70mm tubes fitted to the top frame ranging in capacities from
8-22 along with ether a single or double net carrier attachment.
For added ease of use the entire top frame folds hydraulically
thanks to the help of a 70x30mm double acting ram allowing the
operator to remove the rolls easily and more importantly safely.
The WrapMaster has proven quite popular in its short history
with units being sent across the UK, New Zealand and of course
Ireland in only its second year of production.
Speaking about the new launch BMS director Darren Bailey
commented "At BMS we are constantly on the lookout for quality
products that help our customers become more productive and
profitable into the future, the Grizzly WrapMaster does just that,
we are excited to introduce them to the Irish market and look
forward to seeing them in operation around the country in 2019".
