TWO new round bale netwrap products will be exhibited by Venus Packaging at AgQuip this year.

The first is an addition to the highly successful Totalcover range.

Totalcover is famous for producing secure, well-formed bales with coverage right to the edge on 1.23-metre wide bales and over the edge using 1.3m wide rolls.

This ensures maximum protection during baling, transportation and storage.

Another reason for Totalcover’s success is by offering the choice of different weights and strengths, available to suit all crops and baling conditions.

Totalcover Top 3 in 12, 13 and 14 grams per linear metre with tensile strengths of 290, 310 and 330 kilogram force gives the option to select the right net for the job.

Totalcover Gold at 11g per linear metre with a 270kgf tensile strength suits farmers and contractors looking for a premium economically priced netwrap.

The new addition, Totalcover Double Chain, introduces extra strength and lower cost per linear metre due to the advanced high density polyethylene (HDPE) polymer formulation.

The unique construction has two warp (lengthwise) chains instead of one.

This equates to the 9.5, and 11g per linear metre being 8 per cent stronger than single chain but saves around 9pc in cost per linear metre.

Therefore 9.5g Totalcover Double Chain with a tensile strength up to 290kgf can be used wherever 11 or 12g single chain netwrap (tensile strength 270kgf) is used and 11g Totalcover Double Chain with a tensile strength up to 328kgf can do the same job as 13g single chain netwrap (tensile strength 310kgf).

And at a substantial saving, too, which also makes it ideal for use under silage stretch film.

The other new netwrap to be exhibited at AgQuip is Venus Balewrap.

This competitively priced netwrap is made on the latest technology looms and designed to spread right to the edge to produce well-formed, secure bales.

Venus Balewrap is available in 11g per linear metre with 260 to 280kgf tensile strength and 12.3g per linear metre with 290 to 310kgf tensile strength.

Venus will also feature their extensive range of baler twines including the latest Ultimate Extra range with knot strengths up to 305kg for larger square bales.
