The company claims cotton farmers can increase their efficiency and productivity by reducing the double-handling of hay bales by using the Cotton Trailers, which are available to suit either a 40 or 60 inch row spacing.

McCormack Industries says that one of the major downfalls with other round module pickers is collecting the bales from out in the paddock where the picker has to drop them.

"With our design; the round modules can be grouped at one end of the paddock eliminating double handling of the modules," the company says.

"It’s suitable for everything from long, dry land runs to short irrigated paddocks and can help cut down labour costs.

"It improves condition of modules when they arrive at the gin by reducing the amount of times they need to be handled.

"When you buy one of our Cotton Trailers, we send technicians to walk you through the controls to ensure you get the most out of it."

The unit can be controlled from the cabin of your picker and its unique belt design helps to eliminate cotton bale (module) damage, according to the company.

The company also recently introduced the Cotton Tag Trailer which is towed from the rear of a tractor.
