Different countries, different bales.

3 hp for ROLLANT use.

If, like the Amish in the USA, you are prevented from using tractors for religious reasons, baling with the ROLLANT is still possible. A built-in motor drives the baler, and three horses ensure forward motion. This means the ROLLANT can be used successfully even here, with modern technology adapting to strict religious requirements.

The quickest route to baling.

The ROLLANT UNIWRAP is best known as the one-person silage machine. However, its use in combination with an ARES and a CORTO front-mounted mower is a special feature. Energy-rich feed is harvested here for a German dairy farm. Wheat is mown semi-ripe, deposited under the tractor and compressed immediately into perfect silage bales using UNIWRAP. This is probably the most efficient and economical method of producing silage bales.

The ROLLANT harvesting sugar cane.

In sugar harvesting, only the juicy stems are gathered. The CLAAS sugar cane harvester blows all leaves onto the field; usually, these leaves are left on the field to rot over time. In some regions, the leaves are collected by a ROLLANT and compressed into round bales. The remaining dry sugar cane turns into a combustible raw material, which is easy to transport and provides an additional source of income for the farmer.

Soft material in hard bales.

The plucked cotton must be transported from the field to the cotton factory for further processing. This can often involve long distances. The vehicles must be loaded as fully as possible. Baling up the cotton using a ROLLANT is the obvious solution. The otherwise loose and lightweight material can be transported economically over long distances, as here in South Africa.
