Amazones wrapper…

AMAZONE now has a bale wrapper in its portfolio following a decision to market the Finnish-built Elho range.

Rod Baker, managing director of Amazone Ltd, sees the addition of a bale wrapper to his companys existing line-up of grassland machinery – a range which currently includes mowers, conditioners, tedders, rakes and balers – as a means of providing a full pack in this department.

"We have a commitment to provide UK livestock farmers and contractors with a one-stop source for all their grassland equipment," he says.

Four bale wrappers – the tractor mounted Elho Silo-Matic 420 and 420ACI, and the trailed Silo-Matic 1410 and 1410AC – are now available. All will wrap bales with diameters from 1.2m to 1.5m.

Specification for the 420 includes a 50cm film pre-stretcher unit with automatic cut and tie while the 420ACI benefits from a 50cm/75cm pre-stretcher and an infra-red remote control unit.

Automatic cut and tie, 50cm/75cm pre-stretcher, end support rollers and a bale turning ramp are included in the specification of the two trailed models with auto-bale wrap control being offered on the 1410AC.

Prices start at £4815 for the 420 and extend to £11,465 for the trailed 1410AC.

Elho bale wrappers are now part of Amazones grass machinery line-up.
