THE versatile Lely Welger RP 160 V baler series guarantees high quality output, well-shaped high density bales and is user friendly.

A newly designed and thoroughly tested bale chamber ensures the high performance of this baler series which will replace the well-known Lely Welger RP 415 and RP 445 series balers.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V series consists of two basic models:
- The RP 160 V Classic; has a basic setup and is well suited for drier crops.
- The RP 160 V; has a heavy duty power split gearbox for the heaviest conditions as a rotor feed non-chopper baler or can be fitted with the Mastercut 13 knife or Xtracut 17 knife chopping systems.

The model configurations available along with the advanced features of the Lely Welger RP 160 V series are sure to meet the demands of both farmers and contractors in all kinds of situations.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V baler range features the 2.25m five-tine-bar high capacity camless pick-up.

The cleverly designed segment plates and the short distance from the pick-up to the rotor ensures excellent crop throughput.

Thanks to the newly designed geometry of the bale chamber, bale formation is enhanced from the start.

Together with the renowned Constant Pressure System (CPS) this baler series delivers exceptionally high density and well-shaped bales.

High and consistent bale density reduces costs and ensures a rapid start of the fermentation process in baled silage, resulting in higher feed quality.

Lely is dedicated to the continuous improvement of user friendliness of our forage machinery range.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V features the Easy net Loading System (ELS) where net rolls are loaded from ground level saving time and effort.

The easily opened guarding doors allow quick access to the second net-roll storage and increased access to the machine for maintenance and inspection.

Central greasing banks ensure a high level of comfort for daily maintenance.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V range also features automatic chain lubrication system as standard, which ensures all drive chains are constantly lubricated guaranteeing a longer lifetime.

The Lely Welger RP 160 V’s newly designed drawbar is easily adaptable to any type of tractor. The new storage area for the hydraulic hoses ensures quick coupling to the tractor.

New to the Lely Welger RP 160 V Classic is the Lely E-LINK Control unit.

This unit provides the operator with a clear overview of all baler processes on a colour screen.

 The clear button controls give the operator direct access to important functions, with all adjustments and settings that can be made from the tractor cab.

The user friendly E-LINK Pro terminal is standard on the RP 160 V rotor feed non-chopper model and also the RP 160 V models with the Mastercut and Xtracut chopping systems.

The bright touch screen display offers a clear overview by having a lot of space for all useful baler information.

The E-LINK Pro terminal has ISOBUS compatibility, so any tractor can be easily connected, allowing you to use its own terminal.

“The exceptional performance of the Lely Welger RP 160 V is due to a unique design that incorporates a larger-capacity variable bale chamber and many options in feeding and chopping,”  product manager, balers, Gilles Troff said.

 “It has proven not only to create perfect bales across a range of crops and conditions, but is exceptionally user friendly by design.” (Source: Lely)
