Automatic Bale Loading from Kuhn Adds Wrapping Efficiency

Automatic bale loading is a key feature on the latest round bale wrapper from Kuhn Farm Machinery.

Autoload is a new system that automatically picks up a bale with the loading arm and puts it on the wrapping table, without any action needed from the driver.

The new trailed RW 1600 C turntable wrapper has the integrated Autoload function as standard to increase operating efficiencies when handling bales of 120 cm x 100/150 cm (W x D) and up to 1200kg.

Autoload is a new system that automatically picks up a bale with the loading arm and puts it on the wrapping table, without any action needed from the driver. Picking up a second bale with the loading arm during the wrapping process is also possible; the bale will be picked up and held half way to the wrapping position. When the wrapping process is ready the waiting bale automatically loads further on to the wrapping table. The tractor driver can hold both hands on the steering wheel and doesn’t have to continually push buttons to load the bale.

The strong design and low table height, and standard large wheels located at the rear of the machine, avoid the need for an active fall damper. This removes one step in the normal process and allows the bale to be unloaded on the move, thereby increasing the overall capacity significantly.

The RW 1600 C can load bales up to 1200kg, and distributes the bale weight towards the tractor. This avoids slippage and grip problems in hilly environments.

New electronics are incorporated into the RW 1600 C to provide increased functionality, ergonomics, safety and capacity. The machine is controlled with an easy to operate and fully automatic computer system with integrated joystick. This new electronics package, in combination with the Autoload system, has made the RW 1600 C one of the fastest single-stretcher turntable wrappers on the market. The process can be interrupted and started at anytime with the Play/Pause function. Having full control of the process prevents operator mistakes that can lead to machine breakages.

The RW 1600 C also features Kuhn’s well-known 750 mm aluminium pre-stretchers with cone-shaped outer ends, automatic film cutter and storage for up to 6 spare film rolls. Depending on local circumstances, crop conditions and storage periods, the operator can easily and quickly adjust the number of film layers applied to each bale. The film is pre-stretched by a standard setting of 70% to give excellent film coverage and to reduce film usage.
