  • The user-friendly and easy-to-read precision controller offers the ability to set a consistent number of wraps for each bale to receive. The controller adjusts hydraulic flow automatically to apply the right amount of wraps.
  • Contains three 30-inch (76.2-cm) pre-stretchers to wrap faster and increases the time before plastic film refill is needed compared to machine with only two pre-stretchers.
  • The soft start feature is designed to reduce machine wear and limit the chance of plastic film tearing on startup making your operation more efficient.
  • The optional remote control allows you to start, steer and stop the wrapper from the seat of a tractor or skid-steer loader. This provides more operational control and can help increase efficiency while loading bales onto the wrapper.
  • Positioning the hitch on the BW5500 from the loading end allows you to pull the machine away from the line of bales without requiring a power drive on the bale wrapper.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and replacement parts.
