Technical information

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!

Dealing with twine snags

When you’re linking the spools in a twine box, it takes a lot of time. So, it’s better to do it correctly to prevent issues! Connecting the spools creates a flatter knot that can smoothly go through the twine guides and tensioners.

Uneven twine at the start of a spool

Sometimes, the first 10-20 meters of twine from a spool may look uneven and kinked. This is normal and happens because of how the twine is made and wound onto the spool before packaging. When you pull the twine tight, it straightens out. As the twine moves towards the knotting part, it goes through tensioning with spring clamps in the twine box and twine brakes just before the knotter. These brakes need to be set at a specific tension. When done right, the twisted twine won’t cause any issues!
