McHale engineering is to launch a stand-alone round baler at this year‘s Smithfield show.
The unit – which would usually form the baler section of the company‘s Fusion baler/wrapper combination – is to be available for first-cut silage next year.
A roller-type fixed-chamber machine, it will produce bales of 1.2m diameter and can be fitted with a chopper unit for silage work.
McHale says the baler was extensively tested during the 2004 season and performed well under a range of conditions.
