The McHale Fusion 4 is a robust, fully automatic, integrated baler wrapper recognised worldwide for its unique patented bale transfer, vertical wrapping ring and high output.
The machine is equipped with a 25-knife chopping unit, automatic progressive greasing system and a servo operated load sensing control valve, which when combined with the Expert Plus control console, makes the baling and wrapping process fully automatic. The machine is fitted with 560/60-22.5 tyres as standard.
Patented Bale Transfer
When the netting process is complete the bale chamber splits horizontally. As the top section of the bale chamber moves up, the lower section of the bale chamber simultaneously moves up and out, transferring the bale onto the wrapping platform.
Vertical Wrapping Ring
The vertical wrapping ring is fitted with two 750 mm dispensers, which take approximately 18 seconds to apply 4 layers of film and approximately 24 seconds to apply 6 layers of film in ideal working conditions. In ideal operating conditions, this means that the wrapping platform is always waiting for the next bale.

McHale have created their highest output pick-up for the Fusion 4 range. The new Profi-Flo pick-up has been designed to increase crop intake through more efficient crop flow and has been engineered to ensure end users are operating with a high-performance pick-up that is designed to suit various working conditions.
Over the last decade, McHale has designed and developed various types of pick-ups. After extensive testing, McHale decided it will offer customers the choice of 2 pick-up options depending on their working conditions:
The vertical wrapping ring is fitted with two 750 mm dispensers, which take approximately 18 seconds to apply 4 layers of film and approximately 24 seconds to apply 6 layers of film. This means that the wrapping platform is always waiting for the next bale.
All McHale Profi-Flo pick-ups come with a number of standard features that include:
Over the course of a baling season, machines have to work with different volumes of crop. The McHale patented adaptive intake allows the intake area to automatically adjust for light and heavy crops to facilitate a smooth crop flow into the chamber.
All machines in the McHale Fusion range come fitted with a 540 rpm split drive gearbox as standard. The gearbox design ensures that power is evenly distributed to both sides of the machine.
The star shaped feed rotor ensures a high-capacity flow of crop into the bale chamber. The flights on the rotor are laid out in a spiral formation to achieve consistent crop flow. As crop enters the rotor, rotating flights feed the crop to the bale chamber.
To ensure a consistent and even chop quality, a robust and powerful 25 knife chopper unit has been developed for the McHale integrated bale wrapper range.
All McHale Fusion machines have the option to be fitted with a selectable knife system. Various knife configurations can be chosen depending on the knife bank specification.
As baling conditions are not always ideal, uneven swaths can occur which can lead to blockages. All machines in the McHale Fusion 4 range are fitted with the McHale drop floor unblocking system, a feature which operators have come to love for its simplicity of use and effective unblocking cycle.
The drop floor unblocking system has a number of novel features which aid the operator and the performance of the machine to handle uneven swaths which can lead to blockages.
The bale chamber on the McHale Fusion 4 range is comprised of an 18 roller bale chamber. It has a diameter of 1.23m x 1.25m (4′ ½” x 4′ 1¼”) and is formed from heavy duty rollers.
The McHale Fusion 4 range of machines are fitted with individual grease and oil pumps. The grease pump is connected to the downward movement of the bale tip, while the oil pump is connected to the upward movement of the bale tip. This ensures that grease and oil is applied evenly and continuously as the machine operates.
Two high performance binding systems have been designed & developed to ensure optimum performance. The Fusion 4 & Fusion 4 Pro are equipped with a pivot stretch net system and the Fusion 4 Plus is fitted with an infinite stretch hydraulic binding system.
The McHale Fusion 4 range is fitted with a Servo Operated Load Sensing Control Valve which, makes the baling and wrapping process fully automatic.
In normal working conditions, the ever-efficient wrapping process is always completed ahead of the baler, meaning that the wrapping platform is always ready and waiting to receive the next bale.
The McHale Fusion 4 is fitted with an Expert Plus control console, which features a large graphic display; this allows the operator to monitor the baling process graphically from the control console. It also features:
McHale machines work in different conditions around the world. To optimise performance, we offer a number of options in the McHale Fusion 4 range. We recommend you speak with your local dealer/distributor as regards the best features or options to meet your requirement
