Massey Ferguson’s new RB 4160 P baler offers producers the option of poly or net wrapping on the go in under a minute. The system, besides creating individual baleage can bale dry hay and straw or materials as coarse as corn stover.

The machine shares the chassis with the 4160 silage baler model, producing up to a four by five foot bale. Operators can select from no cutting up to 17 knives to cut material as small as 2.65 inches, aiding in the density and resulting ensiling process. In silage the bales can weight up to 3,000 pounds.

Sensors detect any poly tears or if a roll has run out and compensates for the issue to ensure all bales are fully wrapped.

Loaded with mesh and film the unit can wrap 224 bales in eight layers of plastic or up to 280 bales in six layers, allowing for long baling shifts.
