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.

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.

The drive chain on the Kuhn is identical to the Mc Hale

The Film Binding system on a Kuhn is superior

The 3D wrapping on the Kuhn is brilliant

The Pick up and Chopper system on the Kuhn is probably the best out there

The Kuhn has a reel knock out system if a blockage is too much for the drop floor

The McHale is the Gucci Handbag of the Round Baler world, but the Kuhn is a bloody good machine.

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.

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.

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.

Personally last year the price to change my old fusion to either the kuhn or a new fusion was the same. Resale value and dealer backup swung it back to mchale - even though it's taken a year for mchale to sort out the bale density despite getting onto the dealer lots of times.

Why would you do odd numbers of plastic? I normally put 4 layers of NRF and 4 layers of wrap with the Fusion.

Written by John Swire

A new UK-wide cattle and sheep industry group is to be created to speed up progress against endemic diseases and reputational challenges which are costing the cattle and sheep sectors at least £500 million per year.

An industry consultation* on creating the new group had a strong majority supporting the move in principle, with many believing it will accelerate work to...
