Bigger isn’t necessarily better for Canadian dairy farmer Cregg Nicoll, who is constantly assessing his farm in a bid to find the optimal number of cows and maximise production from them.
The Lely Welger RP160V offers a 2.25 metre, five tine bar, camless pick up and a 13 knife chopping rotor with a short distance from the former to the latter ensuring good crop flow, and making the most of the Heavy-Duty split gearbox driveline to offer maximum performance in the heaviest conditions.
A further option is available on an Indent-Only basis that sees the machine supplied with a wider 2.4 metre pick-up and the Xtracut chopper system that offers two knife banks with 25 knives, and the option to select varying knife combinations from the operator’s seat.
Maximum output is ensured by the Easy Net Loading system (ELS) which offers net fitment from ground level reducing effort and time, while easily opened guards give access to the second, stored roll as well as good inspection and maintenance. Daily servicing is taken care of with centrally grouped grease banks and chain life is prolonged with an automatic lubrication system.
Brendan Prentice, regional sales manager for Lely comments: “The high performance of the new RP 160V is a combination of a larger capacity variable bale chamber, the hydro-flex drop floor system and a range of options for feeding and chopping, whilst being very user-friendly throughout its overall design”
