McCor­mack In­dus­tries’ Cot­ton Trailer lets you group round bales

Queens­land-based McCor­mack In­dus­tries has de­vised an al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional round-mod­ule cot­ton pick­ers with the in­ven­tion of a cot­ton trailer that elim­i­nates dou­ble han­dling.

The com­pany claims cot­ton farm­ers can in­crease their ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity by re­duc­ing the dou­ble han­dling of hay bales via the Cot­ton Trail­ers, which are avail­able to suit ei­ther 40- or 60-inch row spac­ing. McCor­mack In­dus­tries says that one of the ma­jor down­falls with other round mod­ule pick­ers is col­lect­ing the bales from out in the pad­dock where the picker has to drop them.

“With our de­sign, the round mod­ules can be grouped at one end of the pad­dock, elim­i­nat­ing dou­ble han­dling of the mod­ules,” the com­pany says.

“It’s suit­able for ev­ery­thing – from long, dry land runs to short, ir­ri­gated pad­docks, and can help cut down labour costs. It im­proves con­di­tion of mod­ules when they ar­rive at the gin by re­duc­ing the amount of times they need to be han­dled.

“When you buy one of our Cot­ton Trail­ers, we send tech­ni­cians to walk you through the con­trols to en­sure you get the most out of it.”

The unit can be con­trolled from the cabin of a picker, and its unique belt de­sign helps elim­i­nate cot­ton bale (mod­ule) dam­age, ac­cord­ing to McCor­mack In­dus­tries. The com­pany also re­cently in­tro­duced the Cot­ton Tag Trailer, which is towed from the rear of a trac­tor. McCor­mack In­dus­tries is a fam­ily-owned and op­er­ated com­pany lo­cated at Au­bigny, just south of Oakey, on the Dar­ling Downs.

Start­ing in 1984, the busi­ness has evolved from a small fam­ily oper­a­tion into an en­ter­prise with a pur­pose-built fac­tory, em­ploy­ing about 30 staff.
