László Ungvári managing director, Alcsiszigeti Mg Zrt - Szolnok

"We run a livestock farm, which requires large quantity of forage. Our yearly consumption is 6.000 tons of straw and 2.500 tons of Lucerne and grass. We bought our first McHale F550 baler in 2007. After one year we had very good experience with it, so we decide to buy another McHale F550."

"The McHale F550's have a very high capacity and the machines are very reliable. Our McHale F550's make 50-60 bales per hour. Over the last few years we had hot summers and unlike other balers our McHale F550's had no problem keeping the bale turning in the bale chamber. As a result we kept working while other farmers had to go home."

"I bought my McHale F550 in 2009, mainly for baling hay and straw. It is handles both crops well. The wide pickup has a very good intake capacity even in heavy swaths. The netting system is simple and reliable. I would buy another one of these machine again."

"Our first impression were that we liked the robust design and high capacity. We make about 6.000 bales yearly, which are mainly silage. The McHale F550 is a good machine in silage as it produces high density heavy bales."

"...the drop floor unblocking system is a very useful tool for the operator, as a result the operator rarely leaves has to leave the tractor cab ..."

"Unlike my other round balers, my McHale F550 can bale straw all day long even in the hottest of days. The chopping quality in silage is very good. I feel I made a good choice in buying my McHale F550.."

Stuart has now been using his 991 LBER round bale wrapper for two years and said he the main feature he likes "is the remote control, as we can have one person wrapping and stacking and don't need someone standing next to the machine. It is also good in the field as you can set it wrapping and you don't have to hold buttons or levers, it does it all automatically".
