A baler is a useful piece of farm equipment that can be used to increase the efficiency of your business. Once a crop has been cut and raked, a baler can be used to compress it. Common uses of balers are to compress hay, cotton or silage. Once the crop has been compressed into bales it is simpler to transport or store it. Bales differ in size and a variety of materials can be used to bind the bale. Options include twine, netting or strapping. Two kinds of balers include rectangular or cylindrical balers. Recycling plants use industrial balers to compress metal and plastic. These machines can also be used to form bales out of paper so it is easy to transport for recycling.
Round Balers are a popular option for farmers across the globe. An advantage of using this type of baler is that it produces round bales that are weather resistant. Once the bales are a suitable size they are secured with netting. To help preserve the bales they can be covered in plastic using a bale wrapper. Depending on the size of the bale additional equipment may be required to transport it. While it is possible to move smaller bales by hand, relocating larger bales can be more tricky. A bale spear can be used along with a tractor or a skid steer. It is important that the spear enters the centre of the bale to make transportation safer and easier. Another option is to use a grapple fork. A cost effective method of transportation is to attach grab hooks to the bucket of the trailer. Crops such as hay that have been compressed by a baler make it easier to feed farm animals. Storing bales of crops is also more convenient.
A rectangular baler is another option. The advantage of rectangular bales is that they are easier to transport and store. They are ideal for livestock farmers who have big feedlots. Rectangular bales can be transported on a flatbed trailer. As the bales are heavy, additional equipment such as a forklift is required to load them onto the trailer. It is also possible to use a tractor that has been fitted with a front end loader.
Industrial balers are useful for compressing waste materials. These machines are typically used by recycling companies. They create compact bales of materials such as paper, plastic and cans. Types of industrial balers vary from small simple machines to large and complex equipment. Balers can be manually operated or automated.
Once you have decided on the type and size of baler that best suits your farm, make sure you pick a brand that produces quality equipment. Purchasing equipment from a well-known brand will save you time and money on maintenance costs. Claas, Krone and Welger are three of the brands that you can choose from. John Deere balers are renowned for their excellent performance.
