The models combine the features of the IMPRESS range with a wrapping system with fully automatic settings, thereby enabling high-speed baling and wrapping.

Combined with brief stopping times, the models aim to ensure maximum productivity and cost-effectiveness. In addition, the wrapper is versatile and can be adapted to the film size according to bale diameter.

The baler and wrapper combination is available as a fixed-chamber baler (IMPRESS 125 FC PRO) and a variable round baler (IMPRESS 155 VC PRO). It is operated directly from the terminal (POWER CONTROL or ISOBUS). All functions can run automatically or can be controlled directly from the control panel on the tractor.

Pöttinger is presenting its innovations including IMPRESS baler and wrapper combination, NOVACAT CROSS FLOW mower combination and the trailed compact disc harrows TERRADISC 8001 T and TERRADISC 10001 T at the SIMA Paris 2019.

The wrapper in focus

The wrapping arms on the compact wrapping unit take the bale from below and move upwards, a unique technical concept ideally designed to meet the requirements of the high-capacity baler. A further advantage of the system is its low height. The double-wrapping arm works at 36 rpm. The film stretching unit is easily adjusted by “switching” the drive chain for 50 per cent or 70 per cent stretch. Bales are safely transferred to the wrapping table by a transfer unit that moves linearly. With this concept, bales can safely be placed even on gradients of up to 40 per cent.

FLEXCUT 32

The baler and wrapper combination is also fitted with the FLEXCUT 32 retractable short-chop chopping unit consisting of 32 TWINBLADE reversible knives with the NONSTOP individual knife protection system and a theoretical chopping length of 36 mm along the entire width. The shorter chop length enables higher compression of the crop and thus higher bale density. This reduces transport and storage costs since less storage space and handling are required.

Furthermore, the consistent short chop length guarantees a homogeneous composition of silage. This benefits fermentation stability. In addition, less work is required at the feed mixer wagon and opening the bales is considerably easier.

LIFTUP Rotor

As with the solo machines, the baler and wrapper combinations also feature the tried and tested LIFTUP rotor. Due to the patented spiral configuration of the rotor tines, the forage enters the bale chamber across the whole width and tangentially (at an ideal angle). The result is a high intake capacity that translates into high baling performance with very low disintegration losses. In addition, any material that does fall through is fed back into the flow by the cleaning rotor.

Furthermore, material is fed into the bale chamber more evenly and over a broad width. This greatly reduces any left or right steering correction needed to produce perfectly shaped bales. On the other hand, the bale always starts formation in any situation.

The combination of the LIFTUP rotor and the EASY MOVE retractable knife bank ensures unique ease of maintenance of the chopping unit: maintenance can be performed ergonomically in the standing position and outside the hazardous vicinity of the round baler.
