When we asked distribution centers, recycling centers, scrap yards, beverage redemption centers, and manufacturing facilities how their horizontal balers could be improved, the most common feedback we heard was about the cumbersome wire guides on closed door horizontal balers. We listened to our customers and developed a unique tying system for the H60XL horizontal baler (view the YouTube video for the H60XL Horizontal Baler here). Today, the patented semi-automatic wire feeder makes tying bales faster, safer, and easier for customers in the United States, and worldwide.
Unlike other horizontal balers, the industry exclusive patented system in the H60XL Horizontal Baler does not get jammed because automatically clears the tie slot and pulls the wire through and out the bottom of the unloading door for tying. Since the wire is not getting jammed or stuck, the H60XL reduces down time and increases efficiency.
The H60XL Horizontal Baler’s tying system is an industry exclusive:
- Cuts down tying time by 50%
- Reduces labor costs
- Eliminates wire guides (getting rid of a common complaint of closed door horizontal balers)
Quick summary of how it works:
Once you have a full bale in the H60XL baler, climb the ladder to the top of the baler. Put your wires down thru a slot in the top and push them down until they hit a stop plate. Now the wires are in position to get picked up by the feeder fingers. You then go down to the control panel and push the wire forward button. The feeder fingers will pick up the wires and bring them thru the front unloading door. Then you push the wire reverse button to bring the feeder fingers back so you can open the unloading door.
