Lely Welger RP535 / 545
Lely offers a wide range of machinery to meet the demands of all farmers and contractors.
They also offer Europe’s largest variable chamber round baler. To meet the trend for ever-increasing power and efficiency for crop harvesting we have developed a round baler of a unique quality for producing even larger bales.
Huge bale chamber – Enormous capacity
With a diameter of 2 m and a width of 1.23 m the resulting volume of nearly 4 m3 means weights of up to 600 kg with wheat straw can be produced. This is double that of some other balers. This reduces baling costs: and considerably reduces the number of bales, standing time is minimal and net consumption is reduced. And finally, field clearing time is also dramatically reduced.
Constant Pressure System – highest possible bale density
The bale chamber is designed so that the specific area pressure on the bale surface is constant from 1 m to the set bale diameter up to 2 m. This is achieved by increasing the belt tension in respect to the increase in bale chamber diameter. Therefore a high compression of the baled crop is achieved throughout the bale diameter.
Wide pick-up – large intake possibilities
The RP 535 and RP 545 are fitted as standard with a 2.25 m wide pick-up, which gathers the widest of swaths leaving a clean field. The crop is then transported via a heavy feed rotor into the bale chamber. The Powersplit gearbox divides the drive between the intake and the bale chamber.
Feed rotor or chopping unit
The RP 535 can be fitted with the same cutting systems as the RP 445 – Mastercut13, Xtracut17 and Xtracut25. The RP 545 can be fitted with the Xtracut17 and Xtracut25. In addition these balers come with Hydroflexcontrol. This feature allows blockages to be cleared from the feed rotor without leaving the tractor seat, which gives increased work output.
RP 545 – a totally renewed front
The RP 545 features a renewed Powersplit drive. The rugged housing now connects the drawbar to main frame. An extensive pattern of holes in the casting provides ample opportunities to adjust the renewed drawbar to the upper or lower linkage. The front of the baler also features a new, safer standing platform. The machine now features one single standing platform with a banister on either side.
More durable technology
The RP 545 has new 50 mm double roller Profi bearings in the tensioning system which makes the baler more durable than ever before. All rollers and shafts which are part of the bale chamber will be fitted with greasable bearings.
More comfort with ISOBUS electronics
The new E-link Pro is more user friendly. First of all the bright display is clear and offers a lot of space for useful information about the baler. The display also shows a status bar for left and right filling of the bale chamber leaving no excuse for a poorly shaped bale. The system is based on ISOBUS so any tractor can be easily connected allowing you to use the control panel of the tractor also.
Handy field wizard for all field and customers statistics
All field and customers statistics can easily be set by the field wizard, a simple guide to gather important data about number of bales or hours worked per field or customer. You will be able to export the data to your own computer using the USB connector.
