We are pleased to be able to offer you an assortment of Balers & Wrappers from New Holland, Kverneland and McHale. Balers are used to compress a cut and raked crop such as hay, straw or silage into compact bales that are then easy to handle, transport and store. Several different types of balers are commonly used each producing a different type of bale rectangular or round of various sizes bound with twine, strapping, netting or wire. Bales may then be wrapped in plastic using a seperate bale wrapper, this helps keep the hay dry or convert damp grass into silage. Mchale introduced in the year 2000 a combines baler/wrapper which consisted of a heavy duty baler with an integrated wrapping ring, this means the elimination of the second tractor pulling the wrapper. Depending on your personal preference we are happy to be able to talk through your various options.
The Combine Harvester is a machine that harvests grain crops. The name derives from its combining three separate operations comprising harvesting -reaping, threshing and winnowing - into a single process. What is left in the field is the waste straw, dried stems and leaves with limited nutrients, combines are equipped with removable heads that are designed for particular crops. We are able to offer you details and information on New Hollands full product range of Combine Harvesters including the different crop heads.

A Forage Harvester is a farm machine that harvests forage plants to make silage. Silage is grass, corn or other plants that have been chopped into small pieces and compacted together in a storage silo, bunker or bags, ready to ferment to provide feed for livestock. We sell New Holland's Self Propelled Foragers here at Andrew Symons, these big machines work with a cutter head that chops and blows the silage out a chute of the harvester into a wagon. Because Corn and grass require different types of cutting equipment, there are different heads for each type of silage. New Holland have 5 machines in this range for you to pick from, power ranging from 450hp right up to the mighty 824hp, we can help you to pick the correct machine for your business as well as advising you on the correct cutter heads to have.
