You have answered your own question here , the Mchale is also a lot easier to get in through narrow gates , it follows the tractor better.Given the choice what do people prefer. I do like the look of the wrapping system on the kuhn, the extra wrap on the edges is a good thing, but the mchale is such a strong and reliable baler.
We have had Fusions and now run 2 x Kuhn FBP's, access through gateways is identical but the ride quality from the tandem axle is far better than the Fusion's single and large tyre arrangement.You have answered your own question here , the Mchale is also a lot easier to get in through narrow gates , it follows the tractor better.
You're basically saying that the kuhn is the better baler at the moment....When McHale copy Kuhn's pick up and chopper, their film binding system and 3D wrapping the Fusion will be perfect.
If Kuhn can shorten their machine, put it on a single axle with bigger wheels, do something about cost of ownership and in this part of the world, find a dealer who can match the McHale dealers they might displace a few Fusions.
I don't know if the Kuhn is better, I haven't used one, but I know the Fusions I've used aren't perfect.You're basically saying that the kuhn is the better baler at the moment....
You're exactly right about the dealer backup issue though - if that was sorted they'd sell a lot more in the east.
As other members have said, the feed intake on the Kuhn is far superior in all crops.What was your decision to change to kuhn?
