Yeah they weren't selecting the way they should and one set kept dropping out at irregular intervals. Work properly now though.
Is your a 2018 fusion? Mine is and selectable knives arent working properly, only one set will stay up, have blanks in the other set

Had the fusion before fbp kuhn and I moved purely because of problems I had with the mchale and in my area mchale backup not as good as the kuhn dealer , in fact there is no comparison between the two in terms of backup!
But running the kuhn last year on plastic ( not film ) like the mchale has I could see the difference in bale quality, baler also has far superior intake system especially notable in short grass , still packs it in very tightly
As jenks6910 said the protection on the bales in the field is noticeable side by side with fusion and bales holding there shape , would tell me there is more grass in the bales that hold there shape
Ps they were my bales jenks6910 was moving
How's your kuhn doing for you? Have you had any issues or problems? Many bales through it? PM if you prefer

Hi
Very pleased with the kuhn , it’s done 12k bales now , had one problem last year when a short shaft sheared going to gearbox , was up and running next day , looked to be a floor with the shaft and think a few have had same issue and been upgraded same as mine
Copes with the early short grass a lot better then previous McHale balers , and also hardly ever get slip clutch going off, it has hell of an appetite!
Plastic going on the front no problems at all and the 3D wrapper on back does brilliant job , no waste on any of my bales and customers all converted to all plastic on silage / Haylage
 
I have a kuhn bio, not a FBP grant it and I have a fusion 3 plus and the kuhn stays in the shed while the fusion does the work. For me the Fusion is in a different league in terms of toughness, reliability, parts availability and resale.
Your not comparing like for like really

They look great. I can't see my fusion making as neat as those. The short time I had one to try I found some of the density settings a bit confusing.
I had McHale on max density and couldn’t get bales tight enough on short grass , they would sag
These Kuhn bales hold there shape
Density settings easy enough on touchscreen
Just need day or two to get use to it

The new Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) must be flexible and have farming at its heart, the NFU said today, as the government consultation draws to a close.

The scheme is due to be rolled out in 2024, replacing the existing environmental schemes currently available under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
