Easier film wrap loading

LOADING heavy rolls of wrapping film on a vertical spool holder is not the easiest of tasks.

Improvements to William Cook Engineers Electric Tipmaster range of round bale wrappers include the addition of a pivoting film spool holder which swings into the horizontal to help ease the operation.

Other changes for the 97 season comprise a modified hydraulic system designed to achieve a more positive locking of the turntable when bales are tipped off. A slow start/slow stop wrapping action is activated for the first and last wrapping turns to provide an even start and finish to the process.

And lastly, a new 70% pre-stretch unit has been fitted which, it is claimed, keeps film costs under control. &#42
