McHaleMcHale’s new fully-automated F560 round-baler was working at the event.

A fixed chamber machine that produces bales 1.25m wide x 1.25m high, it shares many components with the Fusion baler/wrapper and the less sophisticated F550 round-baler.

Main changes mean that the control box now automates virtually every function – netting, bale ejection and chamber reset.

The chopper unit gains extra knives – now 23 – and all components are lubricated by an auto-greasing and oiling system. List price for the F560 is £29,500.
