Hi all

New here and was wondering if anyone on here has had any experience with Pronar wrappers. I’m stuck between a Pronar ( which I’ve been told is a McHale copy) or a vicon wrapper which are the same price. I know a lot of people swear by McHale but they’re half as much again and second hand ones are as scarce as hen’s teeth I’m only looking at doing 300 to 400 bales a year. Thanks in advance

I drove a 245 model for a day,nothing wrong with build quality from what you could see. Yes it looked like a mchale but it definitely didn’t wrap like a mchale.
my advice buy a used mchale/Tanco/KV etc for the amount your doing.

Thanks for all the replies. I’ve got a bit to think about. I didn’t think about the quality of the wrap so much I was thinking more about build quality, if it’s user friendly and reliability. Sharpy the vicon is a new one bw2400m.

Just wondering why you're considering new for that amount of bales.
Wrappers don't really wear out or deteriorate.
Decent used one would be perfectly adequate

I had a Parmiter wrapper here, was abit slow compared to more modern wrappers but it was stable and built well. Wrapped about 1000 a year with it. For an older/cheaper machine it was fine.

It was copied from the old kvernland silawrap back in the day, although I agree that Mchale generally improve on the design they plagiarise. Only really the fusion that was there own design, HS2000 copied the T8, straw chopper followed Lucas, balers followed lely and plenty of court cases followed.

Was it not a copy of the Connor one. Unfortunately McHale now are not half what they used to be now
The 991 was a game changer when it came out,metal gears and rollers on the pre stretch unit when most of the others were plastic.Reliable hydraulic cut and tie for the wrap,and very heavily built.Since then the Fusion has been arguably their only good idea,nearly everything else has been a copy of something else.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
