DF118BAL Automatic Side Seal Strapping Machine Designed for Hay Baling Industry

DF118BAL is designed specifically for securing hay bales. Improve production by reducing the downtime.

The DF118BAL has been custom designed for the hay baling industry. It is available on new press equipment and can also be retrofit into existing presses right at your location. Dynaric works in conjunction with the major press manufacturers to provide a very reliable and fast strapping machine designed with a breakaway arch in sizes to match today as well as tomorrows bale sizes. The breakaway arch allows for the machine to be moved into and out of line quickly and easily.

The DF118BAL requires 3 phase power and can be ordered to run 12mm (1/2) or 15mm (5/8”) strap. The dispenser is externally located and top mounted – minimizing required floor space. The sealing head is located on the side so that the amount of dust and debris reaching it is minimized.
