Based at Chailey, near Lewes, East Sussex, Michael Rodaway took delivery of his McHale Fusion baler wrapper for the 2005 Silage Season, having become convinced it could be the machine to complete his business.

He did over 9,000 bales of silage that year and had some favourable comments to make.

Michael commented, “It really has performed well. We have a few hills in our parts of the world and when using other makes of machine on down hill slopes, I was plagued with bales losing their way as they transfer from the chamber to the wrapping unit – some have dropped off and others have got stuck half-way” he said “this machine seems to cope well, whatever the terrain”.

“If I had to highlight one feature it would be the machine’s ability to work well up hill and down hill. The transfer of the bale from the bale chamber to the wrapper is virtually failsafe”.

In relation to the Fusion’s output, Michael commented on occasion “we managed to bale and wrap 63 bales per hour, although the average would be nearer 60 – field sizes in this part of the country tend to be on the small size”.

To sum up Michael said “It’s a user-friendly machine in the truest sense of the word”.
