The McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper

The McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper consists of an 18 roller fixed chamber baler and an integrated vertical wrapping ring.

McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrappers, which combine two traditionally separate jobs; namely baling and bale wrapping and integrates them into a single operation, which can be done by one man and one machine. The Fusion 3 is unique in that it has been specifically designed as a high output Integrated Baler Wrapper.

McHale is now recognised as a worldwide leader in the production and development of Integrated Baler Wrappers, its flagship product is the McHale Fusion 3.
  • Machine Guards – giving better access and a more modern look
  • Platform and Hand Rails – for easier access to net system
  • Door Lock Tap located outside the panels on the main platform for operator convenience
  • Improved Net Storage – on main platform
  • Heavy Duty Watershield pto – with star tubing and heavy duty crosses
  • 5 Tine bar pick up – giving 25% better ground cleaning and crop transfer
  • Knife Pressure Display on control box with audible alarm
  • Knife Position Sensor – to ensure the best chop quality
  • Double Row Rotor Bearing – reducing service intervals
  • Tubular Chassis Design – to minimise crop build up
  • Additional Film Roll Holders – giving more film storage
  • LED Lights

The bale chamber on the McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper splits horizontally (like a clam shell) and the lower section of the bale chamber doubles as a transfer mechanism to transfer the netted bale into the vertical wrapping ring. This unique McHale patented system delivers a number of advantages over other integrated baler wrappers, namely in terms of;

  1. The McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper is 5.8 metres long. Overall it is shorter and more manoeuvrable than the competition. This is a distinct advantage when working in small fields or hilly conditions.
  2. On the McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper, the bale transfer takes place as the bale chamber is opening & closing. As the transfer occurs in one movement or step as the baler is opening and closing, the transfer does not reduce the machines output when compared with a traditional fixed chamber round baler.
  3. On the McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper, the transfer occurs in one pass taking less than 10 seconds. This guarantees maximum speed and output. If the one step patented McHale bale transfer is 10 seconds faster than competing machines two step transfers, this results in a time saving of 10 minutes (assuming a production of 60 bales/ per hour).
  4. On the McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper, as the bale transfer takes place the side walls of the lower section of the bale chamber support the bale and stop it from moving to the right or to the left when the Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper is working in hilly conditions.
  5. The McHale Fusion 3 integrated baler wrapper has a single pass bale transfer, which means the bale is transferred into the vertical wrapping ring as the bale chamber opens and closes, this eliminates doubling handling methods such as a secondary transfer arm or moving table between the bale chamber and the wrapping area on the machine. As a result of the single pass bale transfer on the McHale Fusions the machine is faster and more reliable as the bale does not have to be handled twice. Also output is increased as the machine does not have to pause for long periods on the swarth, as it waits for the bale transfer to take place.

Fusion 3 Plus

McHale Fusion 3 Plus integrated baler wrapper

The McHale Fusion 3 Plus integrated baler wrapper consists of an 18 roller fixed chamber baler and an integrated vertical wrapping ring. The McHale Fusion 3 Plus integrated baler wrapper uses Film on Film technology to apply film to the barrel of the bale in the bale chamber. The McHale Fusion 3 Plus is a fully automatic machine which is controlled by the McHale iTouch Control Unit and also has an inbuilt camera to monitor wrapper operation.

Film on film technology refers to the application of film to the barrel of the bale in the bale chamber. The film binds the bale together as it passes from the baler to the bale wrapper, which eliminates the need for string or net wrap. The film that binds the bale together forms a wrap layer and gives better film or plastic coverage on the largest surface of the bale.

Chamber Film Acts As A Wrapping Layer

The plastic which is added to the barrel of the bale to keep the bale together as the bale passes from the baler to the wrapper also forms part of the wrapping process and adds value by placing more plastic on the largest surface of the bale.

Chamber Film Results In Better Shaped Bales

When plastic is applied to the barrel of the bale it can be stretched to approximately 20%. The stretch ratio is higher than what can be achieved with net wrap or twine and as a result the material is kept tighter, which ultimately results in better bale shape.

Chamber Film Delivers Higher Quality Silage

As the plastic is being stretched as it is being applied to the barrel of the bale it expels more air than net wrap would and as a consequence results in better silage quality.

Chamber Film Makes Recycling Easier

As plastic is used to both bind the bale in the bale chamber and to wrap the bale, on feed out the farmer will be left with one form of waste. This reduces the time needed to feed the bale and avoids the unpleasant and time consuming job of separating the twine or net wrap from the plastic before the plastic is to be recycled.

McHale Fusion 3 Plus – iTouch Control Unit

The McHale Fusion 3 Plus is a fully automatic machine which is controlled by the McHale iTouch Control Unit. The McHale “iTouch System” has a 7 inch colour touch screen monitor, which allows for increased levels of monitoring, through its colour graphic display.

Inbuilt Camera

The iTouch monitor features a Camera to monitor wrapper operation.

The camera can work in two modes:

• Manual monitoring
• Automatic monitoring

The iTouch control unit also has an inbuilt systems to ensure that the plastic is applied to the bale.

The operator can adjust the number of layers of film on film being applied to the bale and can also adjust the stretch of the film being applied to the bale in the bale chamber from the comfort of the tractor cab.

The operator can select, if they want:

– the knives in the chopper unit on or off
– the machine to tip or hold the wrapped bale
– a ‘bale only’ programme for hay or straw
– to record multiple bale totals
– a lube alarm
– various bale transfer options depending on ground conditions
