Close Proximity to Loader Carriage
The McHale R5 round bale handler is designed to keep the round bale as close as possible to the loader carriage. This gives better control and balance.
The bale hands on the R5 round bale handler are designed so that they cradle the wrapped round bales without damaging the plastic.
On the R5 round bale handler one of the arms can be locked in position using pins, so only movement occurs in the other arm. This is useful when stacking round bales on a trailer or in confined spaces and sheds.
Handling Unwrapped Bales
The R5 round bale handler can also be used to handle unwrapped round bales or load round bales onto linkage wrappers.
Loading Bales for Transportation
The R5 round bale handler is ideal for loading trailers to take bales to a storage or bale wrapping location.
Loading a Static Wrapping Machine
The R5 round bale handler can be used to load a static bale wrapper such as the McHale 991 LBER. Once the bales are wrapped the R5 can rotate them through 90 degrees and stack the round bales on their ends, where there is more plastic and the bales hold their shapes better.
The R5 has a heavy duty ram fitted with a check valve, maintaining a consistent grip of the round bale as it is being transported. This also ensures the loader operator does not have to keep topping up the grip on the loader.
