The McHale 991 BC round bale wrapper is the entry level machine in the 991 B range. The McHale 991 BC uses four individual levers to control all wrapping functions. The cable-controlled levers on this round bale wrapper allow the operator to control:
|Lift Arm||Wrapping Table|
|Cut & Hold||Bale Tip|
|4 Lever Control||750mm Film Dispenser||Hydraulically Operated Cut & Hold|
|Capacity to carry 7 rolls of film (6&1)||Bale Support Bobbins||3.5 Metre Cables Other lengths available|
|Patented Ground Supported Damper||Shear Bolt Protection System||Quick Fit Film Dispensers|
|Auto Stop Function||Rotation lever locks in position after 2 rotations and stops at the pre-set number of layers||WIZARD Control System|
The patented bale damper system gently lowers the bale to the ground while eliminating any stress on the chassis of the machine.
The 991 BC and BJS lift arms are operated manually. On the 991 BE and High-Speed, the auto lift function places the bale on the wrapping table automatically.
The 991 B range can carry 7 rolls of film:
1 roll (dispenser) + 6 rolls (film storage)
An optional side tip is available on all trailed machines to place bales on their ends after wrapping is complete.
At the end of the wrapping cycle, the hydraulically operated cut & hold system cuts and holds the film in position ready to wrap the next bale.
Automatic film break sensors monitor the plastic as it leaves the dispenser rollers. If plastic breaks or runs out, the machine will notify the operator via the control console.
The McHale lock and load system makes film loading quick and easy by locking the dispenser bobbin up when unloading and locking it back down by simply pulling the cable.
A Shear Bolt protects the gearbox when wrapping poorly shaped bales. All machines are now driven by a heavier gearbox than previous models.
Used on the base level machines, these simple levers control the functions on the wrappers. Used on both the 991 LB and the 991 BC, the levers control the lift arm (991 BC only), wrapping table, cut & hold and bale tip.
The balewrap monitor controls the number of layers of wrap being applied to the bale and keeps track of the number of bales wrapped.
