Fusion 3 Plus – Integrated Baler Wrapper


The McHale Fusion combines two traditionally separate jobs and integrates them into a single operation which can be done by one man and one machine. This results in cost savings associated with financing & running a second tractor and sourcing & paying a second person.

This robust machine is simply not a wrapper coupled onto the back of a baler, it has been specifically designed as a high output integrated unit.

Built to last and developed and tested on some of the worlds most rugged terrain, the McHale product range is known worldwide for its durability, reliability, innovation and value for money.

McHale recognise that there is constant pressure on businesses to reduce costs. As with all McHale machines the Fusion 3 Plus integrated baler wrapper has been designed with the demands of today’s farmers and contractors in mind.


Customer Opinions


“A lot of our bales this year were baled using film on film and customers are very happy with it. Those who switched from net to film on film won’t go back as they have realised the added benefits of better silage quality, reduction in plastic and easier to recycle.” 

“The control box is excellent on the Fusion 3 Plus. Having the bigger screen is a lot better and makes it clearer to see the machine in operation. Also, the two cameras are a big help. As soon as the bale reaches the wrapper you can see it wrapping – the whole process has improved


“I could see the benefit of plastic being used to bind the bale so decided to offer something different. I also liked the simplicity of the machine and its compact heavy-duty build.” 

“I find the bales with film instead of net, very easy to feed out. The film comes off the bale easy and it is evident in the bale that the silage quality is improved when using film. Customers have noticed it too and are happy with the silage quality they are getting.” 

“It’s very easy to maintain; the oiling and greasing system make life that bit easier. If I do need help, my local dealer, Lloyd’s, provide a great service and are always at the end of the phone.



“At least 3,000 bales are produced using film on film. Customers are extremely happy with the silage quality they get from it.” 

“The 25 knife chopper unit is excellent at providing a chop length of 46mm. The baler has been a dream – it’s a heavy duty, fast machine that will swallow up heavy crop. It’s easy to maintain so I carry out a lot of the maintenance myself. But if I need help, it’s always available from my dealer, Halse South West, or McHale over the phone or in the yard. It’s a great service to get from the dealer and manufacturer.”


“We have run combination baler wrappers since 2001 and in 2006 we bought our first McHale Fusion. Since then we have never had to put a bearing or roller in any of the Fusions we used”.

“Overall, the Fusions make a better bale and have never given any bother, you could say they have been trouble free. We changed to two Fusion 3 Plus for the 2015 season and our customers really like the film on film. No one we do film on film for would go back to net, it produces perfect silage. The bales are smaller as the film goes on tighter than net and this forces the air out of the bale. The bales keep their shape better in the stack, we have bales at home stacked 3 high and they are the same shape as the day they came out of the baler.”

“Before we bought the Fusion 3 Pluses, we were putting on extra wrap for a lot of our customers, now with the Fusion 3 plus it costs the same, but the film is better distributed across the bale which produces better silage. The Fusion 3 Pluses are great to chop. The machine has a good fast bale transfer that is reliable and works every time regardless of the crop being baled or if you are working on hills. Since we have bought the Fusion 3 Pluses we have picked up a few more jobs where people bought bales we had done and saw the quality the film on film system was producing. For reliability and service McHale can’t be beat. We bought the Fusion’s from Lyons and Burton in Kilcock and Chris Dolan and the team there have looked after us well.”


“The film on film wrapping results in less mouldy silage forming in the bale which means the farmer has less waste due to the film expelling the air better than net.”

“I am extremely satisfied with the weight and shape of the bales the McHale Fusion 3 Plus is making, as are my customers who have seen an improvement in their fodder since they have started feeding film on film McHale Fusion 3 Plus bales. The machine is very easy to use and this was an important factor in purchasing this machine as I am a new entrant to round bale contracting.”



Fusion 3 & Fusion 3 Plus Buyer’s Guide

Launched in late 2012, the Fusion 3 combination baler wrapper was joined by the Fusion 3 Plus in 2014. The Plus version adds film-on-film or NRF (Net Replacing Film) wrapping, further broadening the appeal of these
fixed-chamber combi machines. Strong demand has helped to ensure firm residuals for both the Fusion 3 and Fusion 3 Plus entering the used market, but where are the keys to unlocking the best second-hand buy?
