Bales are fed directly from the baler into the Bale Band-It. The Bale Band-It takes the bales and turns them on edge and stacks them 3 high in the stacking chamber. When the stacking chamber is full, the horizontal plunger pushes these 3 bales into the main chamber. This process is repeated until it has 7 tiers of 3 bales high. The horizontal plunger then compresses these bales against the back gates, while it ties the 21 bale pack with 2 steel straps. Producing a bundle measuring approx 3.5’ wide x 4.5’ tall x 8’ long.
Why do we use compression grooves?
- Because you want solid self supporting packages.
- This is the single most important factor in keeping tight packages. Exclusive to the Bale Band-It.
- Grooves are compressed 3” top and bottom to tie the strapping 12” shorter than the outside dimensions of the Bundle.
- Strapping is placed against the most dense part of the hay in the compression grooves.
- Even after the hay shrinks and many handlings later you have a package that is solid and easy to move.
- Because someone in the supply chain will want to use standard pallet forks.
