RP 205 | Lely Welger Baler

Simple and robust balers for high-density bales

The Lely Welger RP 205 is intended for baling dry materials like hay and straw without chopping, so the baler design is quite simple. It is a high-quality baler for companies that only bale hay and straw. The 2.25 m wide pick-up ensures it is also suitable for the wide swaths of combine harvesters.

Key features










The Lely Welger RP 205 is equipped with the tried and tested bale chamber with eighteen rollers and mechanical tail-gate locking system. The unprecedented capacity of this bale chamber is well known. The RP 205 is equipped with a spacious packer feed rotor as standard so this capacity can be utilised even in the most dense crops. The Lely Welger RP 205 has no chopping system as an option. As a consequence, this series offers excellent possibilities for cattle farmers and contractors who do not need to chop, but who do want to make heavy bales.

The new drawbar for the Lely Welger RP 205 is already used in other Lely Welger round balers. It is very easy to set this new two-section drawbar into the correct position. Consequently the bale chamber is always in the right position behind the tractor.

A unique characteristic of the baler is a new 2.25 m camless pick-up. The five tine bar pick-up is equipped with new tines that are robustly attached. The clever placement of the tracks and the short distance to the rotor ensure good crop throughput.

The Lely Welger RP 205 is equipped with a simple one-sided drive. The bale chamber does not have a chopping system, so a strong drive is not needed. The lighter one-sided drive demands little power and saves fuel.

Narrow swaths and wet crops present the biggest challenge to the baler drive. With that in mind, the standard automatic chain-lubrication system ensures that all drive chains are constantly lubricated, guaranteeing a long life. The amount of oil can be set for each chain. The oil is applied directly onto the chain with brushes.

The Balercontrol E unit is a simple yet highly efficient system that informs the operator as soon as the bale has reached its correct density. Thereafter, the operator can choose a set-up for automatic or manual start of tying. Bale density is adjusted on the baler itself. The Balercontrol E unit also indicates the number of bales produced per day as well as the total bale count.
