Optimum efficiency in any transport operation is important for profit generation, regardless of whether it is baling for your own consumption or bales to sell. The transport of bales can become a very inefficient process if the wrong equipment and an inadequate number of people are used in the process. Taking sufficient time to choose the right equipment for the job is a key task especially when opting for a Staines Trailer, where the robustness of the build can offer a built to last quality that will optimise your efficiency over longer periods of time. When making a product that lasts, one of the many critical areas where you cannot comprise is material quality and its somewhere, we do not cut corners. Using high grades of British steel with thicker wall thicknesses to guarantee that robust build quality that our customer love. Usually, the first consideration in any purchase is price; however, value relevant to cost should also be evaluated. It is very important that equipment is suitable for the size of the operation and that it will match other harvesting/baling equipment on hand. Data shown in Table below can help in making these determinations.

Another consideration to the efficiency evaluation is the time spent strapping your bales. Securing your load can become a time-consuming process especially when multiplied up over larger areas. Our solution to optimising efficiency within this area is our hydraulic bale door which you can read more about (here).
