Expanded range of variable chamber balers

  • McHale has expanded its range of variable chamber balers with the introduction of the V8940 non-chopper baler and the V8950 15-knife chopper baler
  • These high output machines are designed to produce dense bales from 0.6m – 1.9m in diameter. This increase in bale size and improved density means the McHale V8 baler can produce bales with up to 30% more crop in a 1.9m bale then what is achievable in a 1.68m V6 baler

These high output machines are designed to produce dense bales from 0.6m – 1.9m in diameter. This increase in bale size and improved density means the McHale V8 baler can produce bales with up to 30% more crop in a 1.9m bale then what is achievable in a 1.68m V6 bale.

Martin McHale, McHale Marketing & Sales Director said;

“The new McHale V8 balers have expanded our variable chamber baler range, which is recognised worldwide for making well-shaped, high density bales. Our new V8940 & V8950 have brought baling to a new level with higher density, increased bale size, better intake and easier maintenance.”

All V8 balers feature a new pick-up with a 5-tine bar cam track pick-up or 6 tine bar cam-less pick-up option with double crop roller to choose from.

This new pick-up on the McHale V8 range of balers has a number of new features. McHale have increased the size of the lateral feed augers which direct crop into the rotor while also increasing the rotor diameter to improve intake. The angle at which the floor is positioned has also been redesigned to maximise the flow of crop into the chamber.

All balers in the new V8 range come with a new Adaptive Intake which has been specifically designed to allow the intake area to automatically adjust to changes in material flow.

The design of this floor has a number of advantages;

  • Better crop intake
  • Less chance of blockages occurring
  • Floor automatically adjusts to allow the machine to better handle uneven rows / swaths

As standard, a 15-knife chopper unit is available on the McHale V8950. With all 15 knifes engaged on the McHale V8950, a theoretical chop length of approximately 65mm can be delivered. Knives in the V8950 baler can be engaged and disengaged from the tractor cab.

An optional selectable knife system is available which consists of two knife banks that allow for various knife configurations to be chosen to allow 0, 7, 8, or 15 knives to work.
