Profi Driving Impression – McHale Orbital High Speed Round Bale Wrapper


As the lift arm moves the bale towards the wrapping ring, the wrapping roller closest to the tractor moves out of the way which reduces the height the bale has to travel to get to the wrapper. This clever design allows the bale to move from the ground to the wrapping platform in a smooth quick manner, which is stress free
on the machine, delivering maximum output.


Through the use of the patented tip roller the McHale Orbital Bale Wrapper can wrap bales from 1.1 metre up to 1.45 metres with ease. The patented tip roller adjusts its height in line with bale size to ensure that the wrapping ring always applies the plastic to the centre of the bale, regardless of the bale diameter. This ensures the correct even overlap is always achieved.


Once the bale is loaded onto the bale wrapper, the high-speed vertical wrapping ring can apply four layers of film to a 1.25 metre bale in approximately 18 seconds or six layers of film in under 25 seconds.

The Orbital low maintenance vertical wrapping ring design ensures an even overlap as the distance between the dispensers and the bale never changes which guarantees an even overlap and drastically reduces the likelihood of plastic breakages.


The vertical wrapping ring on the McHale Orbital High Speed Round Bale Wrapper is fitted with two 750mm dispensers, which take approximately 18 seconds to apply 4 layers of film and under 25 seconds to apply six layers of film using both dispensers.

The dispensers are fitted with film break sensors, which notify the operator through the control box in the tractor cab if one or both dispensers run out of film. If one dispenser runs out of film the Orbital Bale Wrapper will continue working and automatically slow bale rotation and increase the number of rotations of the wrapping ring to ensure that the round bale is wrapped correctly.


On the last rotation of the wrapping cycle the cut and holds extend out and the wrapping film is gently supported in the cut and hold rails, once supported the cut and hold gathers the wrapping film to one point where it is cut and held. This system makes the Orbital high speed bale wrappers performance much more reliable particularly in hot or wet conditions.


Film can be loaded from the left hand side of the machine. After loading film on the first dispenser, the operator can push the index button and the dispensers will then rotate around and automatically stop at the loading position for the second dispenser. This allows the operator to easily load the second roll of film.


The McHale Orbital High Speed Round Bale Wrapper is a fully automatic machine. The Expert Plus Control Console provides clear indicators of machine performance on it’s large graphic display.

  • The Expert Plus Control Console, when combined with the load sensing valve on the McHale Orbital bale wrapper makes high speed wrapping operation fully automatic.
  • From the Expert Plus Control Console the operator can adjust features like the number of wrap layers, whether bale tip is manual or automatic. The Control Console can record a number of bale totals for different jobs and also features film break sensing.

When tipping off the bale the rear wrapping roller moves downwards and the McHale Orbital Bale Wrapper gently places its tightly wrapped bale on to the ground.

With the optional side tip the bale can be rotated through 90 degrees and placed on its end, thereby reducing stalk damage from crops such as Alfalfa.
