large square-bale wrapper

Kuhn North America Inc., an agricultural and industrial equipment company, has created the SW 4004, a square-bale wrapper that features a solid design and hydraulic sliding.

According to the company, makes for unique driving — including the ability to widen the wrapper for easy bale loading, stability and visibility of the wrapping process.

The patented loading system has fewer moving parts, resulting in less damage to the bale and less chance for contamination. Bales are picked up by the unique roller pair and automatically placed in their predefined position — horizontal or vertical start.

Bales dropped in hard-to-reach locations can now be retrieved by simply backing over them. The patented design of the short-top rollers allows the film to wrap close to the bale, resulting in less wrinkling of the film and less chance of damage to it.

The hydraulic sliding system provides an 8-foot width for narrow transport, while the drawbar with Cat. II swivel headstock can be controlled via the monitor for unlimited turning angles.

Up to 10 rolls of film can be stored on the heavy-duty tongue.  FG
