Overview


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.
