Product Focus: Elho large bale wrapper

Presented by

Elho’s largest bale wrapper and its 9.5m super swather are now available Down Under through Colac Ag.

Finnish manufacturer Elho’s Sideliner 1790 Pro bale wrapper and V-Twin 950 Super swather, representing some of the larger products in its range, are now available Down Under.

Now available in Australia through Colac Ag, the Elho Sideliner 1790 Pro was built by Elho for large diameter round bales.

Able to wrap bales from 1.2–1.8m in diameter and up to 1.2m wide, the machine can handle bales weighing up to 1,600kg – above the unit’s own weight of 1,480kg.

The Sideliner 1790 fully automates the wrapping process, from loading to offloading, using its intelligent control system to automatically align  the bale to the centre of the wrap table.

Dual 750mm satellite wrap arms with film guards come as standard, along with a hydraulically controlled tow bar to ensure smooth and  convenient handling.

It also comes with standard 17-inch (43cm) wheels, road transport lights and mudguards.

The unit can be trailed behind a tractor, though Elho will also provide an additional mounting set as an option to connect the wrapper to a round baler.

Also available as options are a bale turning ramp or drop mat to make collection of the wrapped bales easier – with the ramp able to be set to drop bales to either the left or right. 

Colac Ag has also made the new Elho V-Twin 950 Super swather available in Australia, saying its adjustable working width means it can be used with any forage harvester – and do its work following any harvest method – regardless of its size.

The wide trailed swather has an adjustable working width of 4.5–9.5 metres with a swath width of 1.3–2.2m, which Elho says also makes the model ideal for irregular paddock sections as well.

The swather’s HydroBalance suspension system helps it follow the ground smoothly, while its 2.4–3.2m transport width means it’s easy to move. 

Elho also uses double rotors on the 950 to lift the forage and move it to the centre without it touching the ground – helping it produce high-quality forage – which it can position to either the right- or left-hand sides of the tractor. 

Colac Ag also distributes other products in the Elho range. To find out more, contact the team at Colac Ag on 03 5231 6999 or visit them online at
