Features & Benefits

User-friendly, easy-to-read precision controller

The user-friendly and easy-to-read precision controller offers the ability to set a consistent number of wraps for each bale to receive. The controller adjusts hydraulic flow automatically to apply the right amount of wraps.

Three pre-stretchers

Contains three 30-inch (76.2-cm) pre-stretchers to wrap faster and increases the time before plastic film refill is needed compared to a machine with only two pre-stretchers.

Soft start feature

The soft start feature is designed to reduce machine wear and limit the chance of plastic film tearing on startup, making your operation more efficient.

Optional remote control

The optional remote control allows you to start, steer and stop the wrapper from the seat of a tractor or skid steer loader. This provides more operational control and can help increase efficiency while loading bales onto the wrapper.

Power drive not required

Positioning the hitch on the BW5500 from the loading end allows you to pull the machine away from the line of bales without requiring a power drive on the bale wrapper.
