Performance enhancing new features have been added to Pöttinger range of IMPRESS round balers.
The company advises that to seal round bales and store them hygienically, they should be stored standing in the upright position with the film layers vertical.
The pressure of the contents of the bale expands the film, the film layers are pressed together and the bale is sealed even better than previously. In addition, there are many more layers of film on the flat side and so the protection against external influences is greater.
The optional bale turner rotates wrapped round bales to be deposited in the vertical position so that they can also be transported in this position. Perfectly integrated into the wrapping platform, it requires hardly any space, but can be used at any time and can be engaged from the control panel and deactivated if necessary.
The optional inclination sensor on F and V PRO models automatically adjusts the speed of the hydraulic functions on the wrapper to the terrain. This ensures that bales are transferred safely, even on slopes.
Optional hydraulic knife group selection is now available that can be operated conveniently from the tractor cab.
The PRO models will be equipped without a control terminal in future. This results in a price advantage for customers with a tractor with an ISOBUS control system. A choice of control terminals is then available as an option: POWER CONTROL, EXPERT, CCI 1200.
Many functions work automatically: binding, tailgate and the pick-up. Semi-automatic function with a play / pause button for all automatic modes.
The IMPRESS 155 V and IMPRESS 185 V were developed for use without a chopping system and have been specially optimised for dry crops. The new feed rotor (instead of the chopping rotor) and the 20 percent higher bale chamber speed further increase the throughput capacity. The IMPRESS 155 V is designed for a bale size of 0.8 to 1.55 m, while the IMPRESS 185 V is designed for a bale size of 0.9 to 1.85 m.
Hay farms in particular appreciate the 3-zone soft core system. This enables infinitely variable adjustment and up to six preselect options to adapt to different operating parameters.
