A new-generation variable chamber round baler with ultimate flexibility

At this year’s Agritechnica in Hannover, Lely introduced a new range of variable chamber round balers that offer ultimate flexibility. The versatile Lely Welger RP 160 V baler range guarantees high output, well-shaped high density bales and user friendliness.

A newly designed and thoroughly tested bale chamber ensures the high performance of this baler range which is replacing the 415 and the 445 baler series. It will be fully available for next season.

Versatile range to meet many demands

The Lely Welger RP 160 V range consists of two basic models. The range features a wide range of pick-ups, chopping systems and two control units to meet the demands of both farmers and contractors in all kinds of situations. The RP 160 V Classic has a basic setup and is well suited for drier crops. The RP160 V Xtra has a heavy duty power split gearbox for the heaviest conditions and can be fitted with the Xtracut chopping systems.

Large intake, increased output

The Lely Welger RP 160 V baler range is available with three different sizes of the five-tine-bar high capacity camless pick-up (2.00m/2.25m/2.40m). The cleverly designed segment plates and the short distance from the pick-up to the rotor ensures excellent crop throughput.

Four different chopping rotors are available and the Xtracut models have a selectable knife bank option enabling the operator to select the amount of knives needed from the comfort of the tractor cab.

Perfect bales

Thanks to the newly designed geometry of the bale chamber, bale formation is enhanced from the start. Together with the renowned Constant Pressure System (CPS) this baler range delivers exceptionally high density and well-shaped bales. High and consistent bale density reduces costs and ensures a rapid start of the fermentation process in baled silage, resulting in higher feed quality.

Enhanced user friendliness

Lely is dedicated to the continuous improvement of user friendliness of our grassland machinery range. The Lely Welger RP 160 V features the Easy net Loading System (ELS) where net rolls are loaded from ground level saving time and effort. The easily opened guarding doors allow quick access to a second net-roll storage and increased access to the machine for maintenance and inspection. Central greasing banks ensure a high level of comfort for daily maintenance. The Lely Welger RP 160 V range also features automatic chain lubrication system as standard, which ensures all drive chains are constantly lubricated guaranteeing a longer lifetime.
The Lely Welger RP 160 V’s newly designed drawbar is easily adaptable to any type of tractor. The new storage area for the hydraulic hoses ensures quick coupling to the tractor.

Easy to use E-link controls

New to the Lely Welger RP 160 V is the Lely E-Link Control unit. This unit provides the operator with a clear overview of all baler processes on a colour screen. Clear button controls give the operator direct access to important functions. All adjustments and settings can be made from the tractor cab. The user friendly E-link Pro terminal is standard on the RP 160 V Xtra models. The bright touch screen display offers a clear overview by having a lot of space for all useful baler information.

Both systems are based on ISOBUS, so any tractor can be easily connected, allowing you to use its own terminal.

‘The exceptional performance of the Lely Welger RP 160 V is due to a unique design that incorporates a larger-capacity variable bale chamber and many options in feeding and chopping,’ commented Gilles Troff, Product Manager Balers. ‘It has proven not only to create perfect bales across a range of crops and conditions, but is exceptionally user friendly by design.’
