McHale has im­proved its V660 and V640 balers

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

Baler spe­cial­ist McHale has up­dated its V660 and V640 balers to pro­duce higher qual­ity bales at speed.

The units’ de­sign im­prove­ments in­clude: an in­creased ro­tor di­am­e­ter of 40mm to im­prove vol­ume of in­take; new crop augers de­signed to di­rect crop evenly into the ro­tor; and a flex­i­ble floor that ad­justs it­self to al­low larger lumps of grass to feed through to the cham­ber, as well as to as­sist the in­creased in­take ca­pac­ity and flow of the crop.

The clean­ing auger will come stan­dard to the V660 (15 knife, chopped) but will be an op­tion for the V640 (non-chopped).

PFG Aus­tralia’s Ian Young says the up­dates will help the farmer pro­duce denser bales.

“The ben­e­fit to the farmer is more leaf prod­uct in each bale. As a re­sult of the higher den­sity achieved, each bale pro­vides an even higher qual­ity feed in con­sis­tently shaped bales,” he says.

The balers have the abil­ity to cope with poor rows, lumpy swaths and short dry crop, yet pro­duce even higher den­sity, higher qual­ity, con­sis­tently shaped bales, PFG says.

Both the V660 and the V640 (pic­tured) come with 2m high-vol­ume pick­ups, which are 40mm larger in di­am­e­ter to pro­vide a per­fect pick up in all con­di­tions, it adds. They are able to make a bale from 0.7m, ad­justed by 20mm in­cre­ments up to 1.68m.
