Due to the wide variation in bale sizes, the Lely Attis PT 160 bale wrapper is the most versatile wrapper in today’s market place. This bale wrapper includes fully automatic controls and an active bale discharge system; it can also transport a second bale.
A versatile wrapper
The Lely Attis PT 160 bale wrapper is the most versatile wrapper in today’s market place. Due to the adjustable bale guides, bale widths can be varied between 125 cm and 150 cm. The adjustable loading arm will load bales with a diameter from 90 to 160 cm onto the wrapping table in one sequence. As the pre-stretcher is height-adjustable, this wrapper can always wrap the film across the centre of the bale irrespective of bale size.
Always the correct number of film layers
The Lely Attis PT 160 is fitted with an E-link Plus fully automatic control unit. The wrapping program can be configured according to the operator’s individual wishes and each function can also be controlled manually. With a pause button you can temporarily interrupt the process, if for example you have to negotiate a narrow passage or if you want to unload the bales at a central location.
Smartly engineered film holders save costs
The PT 160 wrapper is equipped with a pre-stretcher, which can be fitted with 500 or 750 mm film rollers. The adjustable pre-stretchers ensure a pre-stretch of 55% or 70%. This saves film and ensures that the film is wrapped tightly around the bale. A sensor warns the operator if the film breaks or when it needs to be replaced. Thanks to the quick lock system an empty film roll can be replaced quickly and easily. The draw bar has the capacity to carry three additional rolls of film.
Solid construction for intensive use
The simple and exceptionally reliable frame construction ensures long machine life. Wherever possible, steel tubes were manufactured from one piece of steel rather than welding thus reducing welding seams to the bare minimum.
Gently lowering onto the ground
The Attis PT 160 features an active bale discharge system. As soon as the wrapping table tips backwards, the active bale discharge system is raised and takes over the bale from the wrapping table. The film is cut off neatly and held in position for the next bale. Subsequently, the bale discharge system lowers the bale gently to the ground thus avoiding damage to the film. This discharge system can also be fitted with a bale tipper allowing the operator to tip the bale on its end.
Transporting a second bale
It is possible to carry a second bale on the loading arm.
Counter-weight for enhanced stability
With its low centre of gravity and counterweight for enhanced stability, the PT 160 is ideally suited for working on slopes.
Compact transport position
By folding up the loading arm, the PT 160 is quickly ready for transport. The compact design ensures the machine is narrow for transport and it also requires little space for storage.
Fast pick-up and gentle discharge of bales
Lely Attis round bale wrappers are fitted with different systems to pick up and lower bales. Yet they have two things in common. They place the bale on the wrapping table effortlessly, without impairing the shape of the bale and the bale is always lowered gently to the ground avoiding film damage. Both the Attis PT and PS 160 models allow simultaneous transport of bales on the wrapping table and on the loading arm.
Secure bale pick-up with a strong loading arm
The build of the rugged loading arm is very solid and it ensures that bales are placed on the wrapping table without effort and in one single movement. The PT 160 model has an adjustable loading arm allowing the machine to pick up both large and small bales.
Corrective in-line loading system
The in-line loading arms of the Attis PS 160 open wide and pick the bale up easily even at high speeds. As soon as a bale is in position, the arms are closed in a tight grip, lifting the bale onto the wrapping table in one sequence. The arms ensure that bales, which are not well positioned, are correctly presented at the front of the wrapping table.
Driving when wrapping
The bale guides keep the bale in a firm position on the wrapping table. This makes it possible to drive during wrapping. The bale remains firmly positioned on the wrapping table, even in hilly conditions.
Gentle discharge of bales due to the low position of the wrapping table
The position of the wrapping table of the PT 130 and PS 160 models is exceptionally low. After the wrapping process, the table tilts backwards and gently rolls the bale onto the ground. This eliminates the risk of film damage.
Active bale discharge system on PT 160
The Attis PT 160 features an active bale discharge system. When the bale is wrapped the wrapping table tips backwards and releases the bale on to the active bale discharge system which is raised. It then gently lowers the bale to the ground.
Proper wrapping for high-quality fodder
To ensure proper fodder conservation, tight and airtight packing of the bale is essential. The fermentation process can then start quickly. Depending upon the crop and the required storage period you can easily set the number of film layers yourself. The wrapping table automatically sets the required number of rotations and ensures correct film overlap. An acoustic signal tells the operator when the wrapping process is finished.
Wrapping with pre-stretching and correct overlap
Once the bale is positioned on the wrapping table, the wrapper accelerates up to the correct speed in a controlled manner. The wrapping program automatically runs the pre-set number of rotations and ensures correct overlap of the film layers. Thanks to the exchangeable gears on the pre‑stretchers, the film is wrapped around the bale with a 55% or 70% pre-stretch.
Consistent wrapping across the centre of the bale
To be able to wrap the film across the centre of both small and big bales, the stretchers of the Attis PT 160 and PS 160 models are height-adjustable.
Film clamps ensuring a tight grip
When the wrapping program has completed the correct number of rotations, the film clamp holds the film tightly. A strong sharp knife cuts the film neatly. The film clamps hold the film tightly and the next wrapping cycle can begin.
Easy change of film rollers
A quick lock system on the film stretchers ensures that the empty rolls of film can be changed easily and quickly. The film stretcher is opened and closed by adjusting a lever.
A strong construction due to advanced production techniques
The simple yet exceptionally strong frame construction ensures long machine life. Wherever possible, the steel tubes were manufactured from one piece of steel rather than welding, thus reducing welding seams to the bare minimum. In addition to the appeal of this type of construction, it also offers the advantage of improved strength due to less parts. A square tube is shaped into exactly the right angle without undue deformation while maintaining proper wall thickness
Extra strong wrapping arms
The strong wrapping arms of the PS 160 model consist of one piece and are made from steel box section. Strength is further enhanced with the absence of welding seams.
Large gears and a heavy chain
The drive line of the wrapping table has exceptionally large gears and a heavy drive chain for a long life span.
Robust design of the drawbar
The draw bar is of a very strong build and can withstand heavy force. Hitch height is adjustable to ensure effective coupling to the tractor.
Strong loading arm
The loading arm of the PT 130 consists of one single part.
