The McHale V8940 is a high-capacity, non-chopper variable chamber baler capable of producing bales from 0.6–1.9m (2’–6’3″). It is equipped with a high intake feed rotor to ensure even and efficient crop flow to the bale chamber.
The V8940 is driven by a primary drive system for optimum bale formation using 3-endless belts. Central grease blocks are fitted on the machine for greasing whilst oiling is controlled through the continuous oiling system which is driven from the gearbox. Net and bale density can be adjusted through the Expert Plus Control Console.
The machine is fitted with 460/65-20 tyres as standard.

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 specially designed McHale pick-up is positioned close to the rotor to improve delivery of the crop through the rotor to the bale chamber. Large diameter lateral feed augers help direct crop to the bale chamber ensuring a consistent and even crop flow for producing high density bales.
Over the course of a baling season, machines have to work with different volumes of crop. McHale have designed an adaptive intake which allows the intake area to automatically adjust for light and heavy crops to facilitate a smooth crop flow into the chamber.
A 540 rpm Split Drive Gearbox is fitted to all machines in the McHale Variable Chamber Baler Range 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. McHale have designed 3 rotors for the Variable Chamber Baler Range.
For over a decade, all machines in the Variable Chamber Baler Range are fitted with the McHale Drop Floor Unblocking System, a feature which operators have come to love for it’s simplicity of use and effective unblocking cycle.
The bale chamber on the McHale variable chamber baler range is comprised of heavy-duty endless belt(s). The belts are extremely hard wearing and are reinforced with synthetic material, which ensures that the belt(s) can absorb and apply high pressure to the material in the Bale chamber.
A heavy-duty drive system powers belt and bale rotation on all machines in the variable chamber baler range. On the McHale V8940, a primary drive system is fitted to ensure belt rotation and bale formation.
The McHale variable chamber baler range of balers are all fitted with a continuous oiling system. Once the PTO is engaged, the continuous oiling system constantly lubricates the chains to ensure a long lifetime. A lube alarm sounds after 300 bales to inform the operator to refill the oil tank.
A high performance netter has been designed and developed for the McHale Variable Chamber Baler Range. This netter is very reliable and comprises of a moving roller which allows the roll of net to rotate as it is being applied to ensure even net application.
The McHale V8940 is fitted with an Expert Plus control console, which has a large graphic display.
McHale machines work in different conditions around the world. To optimise performance, we offer a number of options in the McHale variable chamber range. We recommend you speak with your local dealer/distributor as regards the best configuration to meet your requirements
