KUHN RW 1410 self-loading round bale wrapper silhouette

When versatility and efficiency counts

The KUHN RW 1410 and 1610 are trailed, self-loading wrappers offering greater versatility and efficiency. The RW 1410 will lift bales of up to 150 cm in diameter and 1000 kg, while the professional RW 1610 is capable of loading bales of up to 1200 kg.

The mid-range KUHN RW 1410 is the most versatile self-loading round bale wrapper. The manual version (M) is controlled with 3 cable levers including a bale and wrap counter and auto stop. The computer controlled version (C) provides all the information and possibilities for automatic operation of the entire wrapping process. Automatic stop at the end of the film roll/ during film tearing comes as standard.

The professional KUHN RW 1610 round bale wrapper is ideal for those wrapping operations where high capacity and high efficiency are required. Due to its strong design with low table height and standard large wheels located at the rear of the wrapper, there is no need for an active fall dampener. This saves extra process steps as the bale can be unloaded on the go. Constant weight transfer towards the tractor avoids slippage in hilly conditions. In addition, the RW 1610 can load and carry a second bale in the loading arm during wrapping. The wrapper is equipped as standard with a high grip film cutter and film roll holder for 2 rolls. The wrapper can be operated via the 3 levers cable control (M version) with standard bale and wrap counter and autostop or computer control box (C version).

Excellent, high capacity wrapping

Wrapping table with 4 belts

Round turntable

The KUHN round bale turntable wrappers are equipped with two rollers and four wide, spaced belts. This design provides a deep and stable cradle for the bale on the wrapping turntable. The two large bale support rollers provide more stability and guidance. The four belts provide maximum traction and even rotation of the bale. Even bale rotation is vital to ensure the optimal film overlap for conservation and crop quality during storage.

Conical pre-stretchers

The standard pre-stretchers, which hold a 750 mm roll, are made of aluminum to avoid tack build-up from the film. Both outer ends of the aluminum rollers are cone-shaped to maintain the optimum width of the film and reduce the risk of tearing. The special ribbed profile of the aluminum rollers keeps air and water away from the film. The location of the pre-stretchers makes it very easy to change the film rolls. The standard pre-stretch of 70% is reached by a low-maintenance and low-noise gear transmission. An optional 60% pre-stretcher gear kit can be installed to change the standard pre-stretch to 60% to adapt to difficult wrapping conditions.

e-TWIN Technology

Besides a standard single stretch application, KUHN offers the unique e-TWIN system for excellent, cost efficient, fast wrapping. The e-TWIN technology enables wrapping via a combined pre-stretcher design with unique film distribution to save 50% on wrapping time and further film savings. The conical pre-stretch rollers have been positioned in such a way that the two 750 mm film wraps with 2/3 overlap are glued together, providing a double layer before they leave the pre-stretcher unit. Optional on selected wrappers is the auto film layer correct kit. The correct kit detects an empty or torn film roll and adjusts the required amount of table rotations to cover the bale with the required amount of layers accordingly.

Unique advantages of e-TWIN:
  • Save 50% wrapping time
  • Further film savings achieved by increased pre-stretch ratio
  • Tightly wrapped bales increases the airtightness and so the quality of feed
  • Extreme tear resistance under all circumstances
  • Available on the manual and computer machines

Film cutters

Once the desired number of film layers have been applied, the film is held firmly and cut. The well-known “scissor-type” cutters hold and cut the film. Due to its design, the film is caught across the full width. The film is held with a clamp, stretched into one solid string, and then cut before the bale is unloaded. The clamp firmly holds the film ready for the next bale.
A spring-loaded high-grip film cutter holds and cuts the film automatically.

Gentle bale ejection

The low mounted table ensures a gentle bale discharge.

Low-profile chassis design

The KUHN trailed wrappers feature a unique low-profile design ideal for stability when loading, wrapping or unloading a bale. The rear axle position results in a low table height eliminating the need for an (active) fall dampener. There is constant weight transfer to the tractor that prevents up-and-down movements of the drawbar and prevents tractor wheel slippage when driving uphill with a bale on the table or loading arm. The bale can be dropped on the go for maximum output!

Manual or computer control

The RW 1610 computer-controlled version (C), with integrated patented AUTOLOAD function, has increased overall efficiency and loading and wrapping capacity. The RF remote control with high distance safety control is optional.

Control systems

Two different control systems are available depending on model and driver preferences:

The manual version (M) is controlled with cable levers and comes as standard with the bale-and-wrap counter and autostop. The bale-and-wrap counter counts the film layers and total number of wrapped bales. The autostop function will automatically stop the wrapping table once the total number of film layers have been applied. This transforms a manually controlled wrapper into a semi-automatically controlled wrapper.

The computer-controlled version (C) on the RW 1410 uses a monitor with an integrated joystick, that provides all the information and possibilities for automatic operation of the entire wrapping process. Automatic stop at the end of the film roll/during film tearingcomes standard.

The enhanced RW 1610 computer-controlled version (C), with integrated patented AUTOLOAD function, has increased overall efficiency and loading and wrapping capacity. The RF remote control with high distance safety control is optional.

AUTOLOAD

The RW 1610 C can carry a second bale in the loading arm during wrapping. The AUTOLOAD function offers increased overall loading, wrapping capacity and efficiency. The patented AUTOLOAD function enables the operator to fully concentrate on the driving process, while the wrapping process is automatically started once the bale has been detected on the loading arm. Picking up a second bale with the loading arm, during the wrapping process for transport, is fully automated.
