    Highlights of the feeder & metering unit

    Low-profile design

    The low profile design and 3.50 meter width of the feeder makes the filling process quick and easy - whether you use a dump trailer, push-off trailer, truck, or direct feeding

     


     

    Metering unit

    The speed of the scraper floor automatically adapts to and controls the material quantity

     


     

    Large capacity feeder

    The feeder provides a large buffer thanks to its nearly 13 m³ volume. This large capacity keeps the VARIO-Master running in between loading.

     


     

    Metering rollers and feed screws

    The continuous profile of the feed screws guarantee that the material is perfectly distributed onto the sloped conveyer.

     


     

    Scraper floor chains

    The galvanized, die-forged scraper floor chains of the sloped conveyer and feeder are indestructible.

     


     

    Highlights of the baler

    Variable chamber

    Bale diameter and bale density are set at the terminal. The range is from 0.80 to 1.4 meters in diameter.

     


     

    Net or film

    You will need an efficient binding system to preserve a bale in perfect condition. Every VARIO-Master model comes standard with a combined dual binding unit for net and film.

     


     

    High compression density

    Two endless belts provide permanently for a high compression of the material.

     


     

    Hydraulic drive of the pressing chamber

    The speed of the bale chamber can be adapted to the material with the hydraulic drive.

     


     

    Refeed belt

    The refeed belt running underneath the entire length of the machine prevents the loss of materialStray particles that escape during the baling process are caught and re-fed back onto the sloping conveyer without contamination.

     


     

    Long lifetime

    Large bearings together with a perfectly attuned lubrication system guarantee the machine will last for a long time.

     


     

    Water injection

    A water injection system allows for the mixing of water into dry materials during baling.

     


     

    Wrapper highlights

    Mobile wrapping table

    The wrapping table slides under the bale chamber and picks up the bales directly, quickly, and gently.


    Twin wrapping arm

    The wrapper always stays one step ahead thanks to its standard twin wrapping arm including 2 x 750 mm film pre-stretchers. The patented plastic rollers mean more bales per roll of film.


    Film cutter

    The stainless steel cutting knife guarantees precise cutting of the film. The standard float position of the film cutter ensures easy release of the film, which means that no remnants are trapped.


    Bale delivery ramp

    The hydraulically lowerable bale delivery ramp ensures a gentle bale deposit.


    Film monitoring and single-film mode

    If a roll of film runs out or the film tears, the feed rate of the wrapping table is reduced until a 50% overlap is guaranteed once more.
    This allows bale wrapping to be completed without interruption. If both film rolls run out or tear, the film monitoring stops the wrapping process.


    Control system

    Program control PROFI with PROFI plus handset

    The VARIO-Master V140 is operated with the PROFI plus L handset. The user interface is structured intuitively and enables easy operation of the machine. The entire work process as well as the machine settings are depicted via the display. Via the handset's USB port, the language and customer logos for the weighing system with label printer can be imported with ease and customer account data exported in CSV format. 

    Materials suitable for baling

    The large variety of materials suitable for baling and wrapping means that the VARIO-Master V140 can be used for a wide range of purposes. As a result of the various harvest times, the machine is used to capacity all year round. This guarantees maximum efficiency and utilization. The most common materials at a glance:

    Corn silage is produced using the entire corn plant and serves as one of the most important staple feeds for livestock with high milk yields. Corn silage provides particularly nutritious energy in the form of starch from crushed corn grains and is also very rich in fiber. In this way, corn silage provides the optimal conditions for achieving maximum milk or fattening yields
    . Particularly at temperatures above 15 degrees Celsius, the feed can deteriorate in quality due to the high activity of microbacteria. The very high compression during the LT-Master F115 baling process achieves unmatched keeping and feed quality.

    CCM (corn-cob-mix) is an excellent energy feed made from the cob and kernels of the corn cob. It is used to feed pigs, cattle, and other small ruminants. CCM silage offers the maximum energy concentration through additional starch and has an excellent price-performance ratio in comparison with traditional concentrated feed.
    The crushing of corn grains gives the feed more structure and makes it very easy for livestock to pick up. Due to their compact shape, CCM silage bales are perfectly easy to handle and also ideally suited to feeding in smaller quantities.

    Alongside corn silage, alfalfa silage is one of the most important basic feed components in cattle feeding. High feed intake as well as particularly high structural effectiveness contributes to substantial cattle milk yields. The cultivation of alfalfa offers high yield security and also improves the quality of the soil. However, its low sugar content makes alfalfa very difficult to preserve using traditional methods. Processing into round bales using an LT-Master F115 significantly enhances the silage quality of alfalfa thanks to the rapid air-tight seal and effective compression.

    Pressed sugar beet pulp silages are characterized by a very high energy content, they are easily digestible, and impress with their palatability. They are an ideal supplement to grass silages since they have a negative ruminal nitrogen balance and thereby compensate for the protein balance in the stomach. Pressed beet pulp silages have very low lactic acid content and therefore also a very low total acidity. High compression as well as clean processing while still warm are hugely important for silage quality. LT-Master F115 round bales also cool down faster and can therefore be used for feeding sooner.

    A TMR contains a balanced mix of staple forage and concentrated feed. Dry matter content and energy content are perfectly coordinated. TM rations have a very positive effect on milk yields and animal health. Already fermented silages are mixed and ensiled again for stockpiling TMR. The LT-Master F115 can be used to produce TMR inventory quickly, easily, and inexpensively. It is transportable and therefore an ideal solution for trade.

    Be it wood shavings, wood wool, bark mulch, wood chips, or pellets, the LT-Master F115 can be used to press all materials into compact bales. This makes transport easier and also saves on expensive storage locations. The bales can be transported with a tractor, stacked, or loaded onto a pallet. Pressed into a bale, the material stays clean and dry.

    Grain whole plant silages tend to be produced using barley, wheat, or triticale. Cultivation provides a very reliable yield and has benefits in the field of crop management. However, grain has a very low energy content and is difficult to ensile using traditional methods. Optimal compression and the rapid air-tight seal make it easy to produce grain silage with the LT-Master F115.

    Grass silage serves as the most important staple forage for livestock. The feed is made from an optimal combination of sweet grasses, herbs, and clover.
    Grass types with a high sugar content guarantee a good fermentation process. Thanks to the LT-Master F115, even grasses with a higher fiber content can be optimally processed due to the high bale density.

    The storage of garbage and waste is an ever-growing problem. Some materials are prepared for further processing and used as substitute fuels. The LT-Master F115 offers a quick and easy solution to the associated storage and transport problems. Compressed bales can be transported compactly and are ideally suited to temporary storage. In principle, solid residues such as plastic, domestic refuse, shredded carpet, and even compost can be processed into round bales.

    Industrial hemp is characterized by a very high CBD content and is primarily used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.

    Wild animal feed, vegetable waste, sugar cane, crushed grain corn, horse manure, apple pomace, straw, etc.

    Basic model

    WITH EU type-approval for up to 80 km/h

    The LT-Master F115 is equipped as standard with a combined dual binding unit. As a result, two rolls of net or film can be inserted at the same time or even in combination.

    Working width 3.50 m

    The camera system, which is equipped with four infrared cameras, provides a perfect overview of the entire workflow and the area around the machine – both day and night.

    The four cameras are positioned so as to allow a clear view of the top of the bale chamber, the elevator, the wrapping table, and the rear of the machine (on the right in the direction of travel).

    The correct dry and moisture content of the material is crucial for high compression of the material and perfectly compressed bales. In the case of very dry materials, water can be added directly to the bale chamber via the water injection unit.

    Consists of a solenoid valve, tubing, and adjustable nozzles.

    The compact hand-held transmitter works via remote control and initiates bale deposit of the wrapped bale. Thanks to its handiness, the user can keep the transmitter with them at all times and start the deposit.

    All work cycles are fully automatic

    Additional equipment

    The drive works using a joint shaft, which also makes it possible to use a tractor at any time. The engine is very quiet and operating costs are kept down in comparison with a tractor with high fuel costs. As a result, not only do you save space, but also exhaust gases, thereby enabling operation in sheds. However, the cover makes it possible to use the electric drive outdoors with ease too (temperature range: -15 to +60° C). The maintenance costs are very low and thanks to the base with forklift slings, the electric drive is easy to transport. The electric drive has a soft starter. This massively reduces initial voltage peaks as well as the starting torque. This also saves power and is gentle on the drive, shafts, and transmission.

    Thanks to the bale tipper integrated in the bale delivery ramp, it is possible to gently deposit the bale on the left or right. If this is deactivated, the bale is rolled off to the front as standard. Storage of the bales on their ends enables quicker and gentler removal.

    In order to achieve a good ensiling result, there are a few key factors: 

    • The ensiling suitability of the material
    • Adherence to the ensiling rules (harvest time and wilting, cutting length, efficiency of the silage chain, compression, and air-tight seal)
    • Weather conditions

    If not all factors are perfectly coordinated (e.g., due to periods of bad weather), silage additives should help to significantly improve the ensiling result by preventing incorrect fermentation and subsequent warming processes.

    Using a self-priming pump with filter and electronic flow meter, the silage additive is injected directly into the bale chamber via two stainless steel nozzles. The silage additive is thereby optimally distributed in the feed of the round bales. The dosing unit is ideal both for lactic acid bacteria and low-corrosion acids.

    Note: tank not included.
    Important: After use, the silage additive dosing must be rinsed with water every day.

    Scope of delivery:

    • Dosistar control unit
    • Pump with filter
    • Electronic flow measurement
    • Various nozzles
    • Suction hose for external containers
