Film Binding Technology

  • The plastic, which is applied to the barrel of the bale forms an additional layer of wrap across the largest surface of the bale, whilst also binding the bale together.
  • The film which is applied to the barrel of the bale can be stretched to approximately 20%, a higher ratio than what can be achieved with net wrap. This additional layer of film on the barrel of the bale provides higher quality silage as the film can be stretched more than net. This in turn, expels more air, resulting in better silage quality.
  • By using film to bind the bale together, recycling is made easier as the farmer is only left with one form of waste to recycle and can avoid the unpleasant and time consuming job of separating net from the plastic.

Drop floor

The McHale F5400 non chopper round baler is designed to achieve maximum output, however as baling conditions are not always ideal, uneven swarths can occur, which can lead to blockages. The main drive chain is protected by a slip clutch on the PTO.

Should a blockage occur, the sound of the slip clutch alerts the operator who can hydraulically lower the floor from the tractor cab. This widens the feed channel, on re-engaging the PTO the blockage will be fed through. The floor can then be reset and baling can resume.

Split Drive Gearbox

On the McHale F5400 Non Chopper Round Baler, the left hand side of the gearbox drives the rollers in the bale chamber, while the pick up and feed rotor are driven from the right hand side of the machine. This system ensures direct short transfer paths and optimal power distribution.

Feed rotor

The star shaped feed rotor fitted behind the pick up on the F5400 round baler ensures a high capacity flow of grass into the bale chamber. As crop enters the rotor, rotating tines feed the crop through to the bale chamber. The tines on the rotor ensure high output while the star layout reduces the load peaks as the F5400 round baler works in heavy swaths.

Net loading & storage

Net loading has been optimized on the F5000 baler range by the simple yet very effective rock and roll net loading system. The operator simply releases the straps on the spare roll of net on the machine platform and rocks the net roll from its storage position over the lip in the platform and rolls it into the net box. Storage for an extra roll of net is provided on the baler platform.

Pick up

The McHale F5400 non-chopper round baler is equipped with a 2.1 meter galvanized pick up that lifts even the shortest of crop. Accurate height control can be achieved through a spring balanced hydraulic lifting system. The F5400 non chopper baler comes standard with pneumatic guide wheels, which contact the ground on exactly the same line as the tines and guide the pick up perfectly over uneven ground.

The pick up on the F5400 non-chopper baler is fitted with lateral feed augers that smoothly guide the crop into the chopping unit. The pick up features

  • Five rows of tines
  • Double raced cam bearings
  • Slip clutch protection
  • Cam side inspection port for checking/ changing pick up bearings

A crop compression roller is also available as an optional extra on the McHale F5400 round baler. This roller evens out lumps in the swath and minimizes the risk of blockages when working in heavy swaths.

bale chamber / chamber bearings

The bale chamber on the McHale F5400 round baler produces a 1.23 X 1.25 meter round bale. The bale chamber on the F5400 round baler is comprised of 18 heavy duty rollers.
