Best way to prevent damage and improve rotation

When a bale stays trapped in the chamber instead of being ejected, it can harm new bales at the beginning of the season by causing damage to the net via the rollers. Also, rusty or paint-covered surfaces on the new sides can prevent the bale from rotating smoothly for the initial few bales. We recommend disengaging the PTO (Power Take-Off) before ejecting the bale until the side walls have been polished or smoothened. That way you can roll on smoothly into a trouble-free season!

Technical information

Dirt and rust in your net box

Always avoid beginning the season with rusted or dirty surfaces. Check that any areas where the Netwrap touches metal surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and free from rust to ensure optimal baling, everytime!

How to best dry your bales

When storing hay and straw bales outside, don’t forget to store them in a way that both sides of the bale obtain maximum sunshine. This will help them to dry out after rain.
The North-facing side of bales stacked in an East-West alignment will never be in the sunshine, and will therefore prevent a wet bale from fully drying out. Bales stacked in a North-South alignment will allow BOTH sides of the bale to dry out. Keep it in mind!
