McHale has improved its V660 and V640 balers
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.
