With a wide range of hay tools developed in direct response to customer needs, McHale has all the bases covered.

McHale V8950 15-knife chopper baler

McHale’s range of innovative and durable balers, wrappers and integrated balers is designed to give farmers and contractors everything they need for what is likely to be a bumper season ahead.

The Irish manufacturer is renowned for providing clever, pragmatic solutions to customers’ requirements, and introducing upgrades and new models only after extensive testing in the field.

The Fusion Vario integrated baler wrapper is a great example of this, thanks to notable advancements in technology and design.

"You can’t equal McHale for longevity and robustness," says one Victorian-based contractor.

"The Fusion is bulletproof, and the fuel savings alone are huge. It’s the most satisfying machine I’ve ever used."

The Fusion Vario’s reputation stems from its reliability, its patented high speed transfer system and its high output.

Fully automated, it can wrap bales from 1.1m to 1.45m in diameter, with the patented tip roller adjusting its height in line with bale size to ensure the plastic is always centred, regardless of how wide it is.

Bale transfer occurs in one pass, without slowing output. When the bale is formed, netting is applied and the bale chamber then splits horizontally; the lower section transfers the bale into the wrapping ring. When the chamber closes work continues, as the machine automatically starts the wrapping process.

For farmers looking to replace or upgrade a round baler, the McHale V6750 is part of the "next-gen" V6 range, boasting a bigger rotor, new pickup, enhanced panel design and different chamber options compared to its predecessor.

Along with a 15-knife chopper unit, it also has a standard cam-operated 2.1m high-intake galvanised pickup fitted with five tine bars.

A double drive system is standard on the V6750, benefitting belt rotation and bale formation and allowing operators to work in challenging conditions.

The netting system on the V6750 features endless net adjustment and can hold net rolls up to 1,300mm in width.

Topped off with an auto greasing system, 500/50-22.5 tyres and McHale’s tried and tested drop floor unblocking system – alerting the operator to blockages and allowing them to respond by lowering the drop floor from the tractor cab – McHale says the V6750 round baler will boost output and density. The McHale V6 range also includes the V6740 rotorfeed baler.

McHale 991 high speed round bale wrapper

Then there is McHale’s flagship V8 baler series, which the company says ups the ante in terms of bale size and solidity, driven by customer demand.

The McHale V8940 non-chopper baler will create bales from 0.6m to 1.9m in diameter, and with up to 30 per cent more crop than a V6 bale.

Equipped with a cam track pick-up, the new model features a variable chamber, equipped with a high intake twin finger feed rotor to promote consistent and efficient crop flow to the bale chamber.

It comes with the large display Expert Plus control console, enabling the choice of bale density and size, as well as net revolutions.

The V8940 features continuous oiling and a heavy-duty drive system powers belt and bale rotation. Also available in the McHale V8 range is the V8950 with 15 knives and an auto grease system.

The fully automatic Orbital is a high-speed round bale wrapper that uses vertical wrapping ring technology – first seen in the McHale Fusion – to deliver high output, low maintenance wrapping capable of keeping up with multiple balers.

With a patented tip roller and consistent, even overlap to ensure fodder preservation, the Orbital’s ring wraps at 40 revolutions per minute for bales measuring 1.0m to 1.48m. It can apply four layers of film in under 18 seconds and six layers in under 25 seconds.

The McHale 991 high speed bale wrapper has quickly forged a reputation for durability and quality, says McHale.

The two-stepped 750mm aluminium dispensers, a hydraulically operated cut and tie system, film break sensors and a patented bale dampener system, set this bale wrapper apart, says McHale, leading the way for efficient and effective round bale wrapping.

The 991 wrapper has been received positively by farmers and contractors, with feedback testifying to the boost in output after using it in the field.
