New round balers for Lely
Lley's new Welger RP 160V balers will replace the existing RP 415 and 445 baler series.

The company says the new range will replace the 415 and the 445 baler series and guarantees high output, well-shaped high density bales and user friendliness.

"The exceptional performance of the Lely Welger RP 160 V is due to a unique design that incorporates a larger-capacity variable bale chamber and many options in feeding and chopping," says Lely balers product manager Gilles Troff.

"It has proven not only to create perfect bales across a range of crops and conditions, but is exceptionally user friendly by design."

Two main models are available in the new line-up - the Lely Welger RP 160 V Classic and Lely Welger RP 160 V Xtra that carries a wide range of pick-ups, chopping systems and two control units to meet the demands of both farmers and contractors in various situations.

The RP 160 V Classic has a basic setup and is well suited for drier crops while the RP160 V Xtra has a heavy duty power split gearbox for the heaviest conditions and can be fitted with the Xtracut chopping systems.

The full range is available with three different sizes of the five-tine-bar high capacity camless pick-up (2.00m/2.25m/2.40m). Lely says its well-designed segment plates as well as the short distance between pick-up and rotor ensures excellent crop throughput.

Four different chopping rotors are available and the Xtracut models have a selectable knife bank option enabling the operator to select the amount of knives needed from the tractor cab.

Lely says bale formation and density is improved on this range with the help of the new bale chamber’s geometry design as well as Lely’s Constant Pressure System (CPS). High and consistent bale density reduces costs and ensures a rapid start of the fermentation process in baled silage, resulting in higher feed quality.

To enhance user-friendliness, Lely incorporated the Easy net Loading System (ELS) on the Welger RP 160 V range where net rolls are loaded from ground level, saving operators time and effort.

Easy-to-open guarding doors allow quick access to a second net-roll storage and increased access to the machine for maintenance and inspection.

Central greasing banks allow for comfortable and easier daily maintenance while the standard automatic chain lubrication system ensures all drive chains are constantly lubricated for a longer machine life.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V’s newly designed drawbar is easily adaptable to any type of tractor. The new storage area for the hydraulic hoses ensures quick coupling to the tractor.

A new addition to the Lely Welger RP 160 V series is the Lely E-Link Control unit which provides the operator with a clear overview of all baler processes on a colour screen.

Clear button controls give the operator direct access to important functions and the ability to make all machine adjustments from the tractor cab.

The user-friendly E-link Pro terminal is standard on the RP 160 V Xtra models. The bright touch screen display offers a clear overview of all useful baler information.

Both systems are ISOBUS-based, so operators can connect any tractor with the Lely Welger RP 160 V range and utilise their own terminal to operate the balers.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V baler range made its debut at the recent Agritechnica 2015 trade fair which was held in Hanover, Germany from November 8 to 14.
