It is possible to make savings in wrap with the Tubeline machines as you aren’t wrapping the end of the bales. Savings can be made in time taken to wrap as well once you have a system in place. There’s now a laser guidance option on Tubeline machines to allow them to automatically keep parallel to walls and other rows of bales which may help with the space issue in some circumstances. There is a member on here who swapped to a Tubeline last year, will let him come forward if he so wishes.

That would be great thanks ,just a couple of questions does it use half the film of a standered wrapper and do square bales use less wrap than round bales per kilo of silage

Our old Recce Tubeline from the '90s will use about 30% less plastic per round bale than the conventional individual wrapper. My uncle has a newer self-propelled Anderson X tractor and it uses probably 40% less plastic, but in my opinion, he has a little too much stretch so the wrap is a little thin. Space is an issue but if you have a long area it works well, changing rows is a hassle so the longer the better. If you can get someone to feed the bales to the person loading the wrapper we can do 60 odd bales hours you could probably do more if you had a decent wrapper. We wrapped squares years ago some brutes of bales to feed out I'm told.

The Anderson one looks the business , its just with wrap nearly double what it was 2 years ago it's well worth considering
