Unia’s low-cost Twister bale-wrapper heads to UK

East Yorkshire farm machinery importer Manterra has added a bale-wrapper to its growing stable of machinery from Polish maker Unia.

Called the Twister, the firm’s round bale wrapper joins a range that includes ploughs, spreaders, cultivators and discs.

The Twister has a pilot box control panel, two 750mm film feeders with automatic tension control, a bale unloader and two film racks.

Manterra’s founder, farmer and agronomist Andrew Manfield said: “The Unia Twister has performed consistently well throughout Europe since its launch in 2014 and with a price of £9,495, it is ideally suited to UK growers who are looking for an affordable, hard-working machine.”

Founded in 1882, the Unia Group is said to be central Europe’s leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery and employs 1,350 people at its five manufacturing sites in Poland and France.

It produces 25,000 machines a year and exports to more than 60 countries.
