More Handling Capacity

Bale Band-It Bundles move more product per handling than other methods.

  • Move 21 or 42 bales at a time.
  • Bale Band-It Bundles are tough enough to handle the heavier bales; keeping efficiencies up, while maintaining reasonable bale weights.

If you have 50% less product in a bale it will take 2 times more handling for the same amount of hay.

Light bales are not efficient for Handling.

*** Handling Multiplier: Multiply your handling cost to move a 72 lb bale by “Multiplier” to see the handling cost of lighter bale weights.

 

Lighter bales yield:

  • more picking up with your loader
  • more loading on trailers
  • more unloading
  • more cost to producers and end consumers

No matter how you handle the bales, individually or in 21 Bale Band-It Bundles, lower bale weight means lower efficiencies.

The Bale Band-It gives you the versatility to be as efficient as possible.  All the while keeping you out of “Fluff Range” that has expensive inefficiencies.

Bale Band-It Bundles are the benchmark that all other systems are measured by.

Bale Band-It Bundles allow you to move 21 bales at a time…
