Tubeline bale wrapers

You'll save a heap of plastic(about 1/3 less). A good wrapper and operator can fair crack on if there are bales sitting by to wrap our machine can wrap 60 bales an hour if we are set up and it's about 20 years old and would have wrapped at least 40k bales. The only problem is space to store bales and you need to cart the bales and wrap them in a timely fashion otherwise it's a nightmare to wrap them. Another problem is unless you want to use another bale or some other way of sealing the end once the rows open, you'll always have an exposed bale face if that a concern.

Bird damage a minus.

Also if one bale goes off it can spread down row.

We've a couple grays tubeliners. We just do straw with them for rainproofing and some for ammonia straw treatment. Don't do any silage.

Does anyone know of any about on the sh market and does anyone have or still use one as to hear pros and cons.
I work for the U.K. distributor for Tubeline, there’s none that I’m aware of on the secondhand market currently. We’re currently finding a surge of interest in them due to the savings that can be made in plastic with them as already mentioned.

Bird damage could be an issue but in my experience that can be the case with any wrapped bale. Depending on model both square and round bales can be wrapped with the same machine at quite a high work rate.
If you have any questions on models/capabilities please do ask and I’ll do my best to help.
