New for the 2006 season, John Deere XtraNet 3600 is a much longer
roll of the company’s branded netwrap, which is designed
to substantially cut baling costs.
Advances in raw material and manufacturing technology
have resulted in a minimum length of 3600m in every roll. John
Deere XtraNet 3600 is therefore 20 per cent longer than all standard
3000m plain netwrap currently available, guaranteeing significant
user benefits in cost and convenience.
More importantly, the new rolls can significantly reduce the cost
per bale, as fewer rolls will be needed to wrap the same number
of bales. For example, to wrap 10,000 1.2m bales would normally
take at least 34 rolls of standard 3000m white net, while only
28 of the new longer XtraNet rolls would be required.
“Many customers are used to purchasing their netwrap by
comparing roll prices, instead of considering the actual cost per
metre,” says Keith Ockenden, sales director of UAT, the distributor
of John Deere XtraNet 3600. “The longer rolls mean many more
bales per roll can be produced than with previous makes of net,
enabling greater output and efficiency from the baler, and giving
significant reductions in actual bale wrapping costs.”
Since its introduction in 2000, John Deere’s netwrap has
become one of the leading brands, with a range of innovative features.
Full bale coverage is provided by Tama’s patented ‘Edge
to Edge’ technology, allowing users to benefit from higher
quality bales. The netwrap also incorporates a distinctive, easily
visible asymmetrical zebra stripe pattern to assist in loading
rolls and feeding out bales.
Additional benefits include roll handles for safe, easy carrying
and plastic moulded cradles to hold the rolls securely on the delivery
pallet. Further details can be obtained from John Deere dealers
