Two new Lely Welger balers
A new generation of Lely Welger RP 160 V variable-chamber round balers is now available in Australia.
The new balers guarantee well-shaped and high-density bales, due to a newly designed bale chamber, and succeed the well-known Lely Welger RP 415 and RP 445 series balers.
The Lely Welger RP 160 V series consists of two models: the RP 160 V Classic, which is well-suited for drier crops; and the RP 160 V, featuring a heavy-duty power split gearbox for the heaviest conditions.
"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," Lely Welger balers product manager Gilles Troff says.
"It has proven not only to create perfect bales across a range of crops and conditions, but is exceptionally user friendly by design."
The Lely Welger RP 160 V baler range features a 2.25m five-tine-bar high capacity camless pick-up, cleverly designed segment plates and a short distance from pick-up to rotor, which the company says ensures excellent crop throughput.
Bale formation and density is enhanced through the newly designed shape of the bale chamber and a Constant Pressure System (CPS).
High and consistent bale density reduces costs and ensures a rapid start to the fermentation process in baled silage, resulting in higher feed quality.
"Lely is dedicated to the continuous improvement of user friendliness of our forage machinery range," Troff says. "The advanced features of the Lely Welger RP 160V and RP 160V Classic are sure to meet the demands of both farmers and contractors in all kinds of situations."
The Lely Welger RP 160 V features the Easy net Loading System (ELS) where net rolls are loaded from ground level, saving time and effort.
The guarding doors allow quick access to the second net-roll storage and increased access to the machine and central greasing banks for easy maintenance.
A newly designed drawbar is easily adaptable to any type of tractor and the new storage area for the hydraulic hoses ensures quick coupling to the tractor.
New to the Lely Welger RP 160 V Classic 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, with all adjustments and settings that can be made from the tractor cab.
The E-LINK Pro terminal touch screen display comes standard on the RP 160 V rotor feed non-chopper model and also the RP 160 V models with the Mastercut and Xtracut chopping systems.
The E-LINK Pro terminal has ISOBUS compatibility, so any tractor can be easily connected, allowing you to use its own terminal.
