Q Series Wrapper

The TANCO Q Series, 3-point mounted square and round bale wrapper, is TANCO’s most advanced and versatile wrapper ever developed and showcases many of the new developments and innovations coming out of TANCO.

Building on over 15 years of experience in linkage mounted wrappers, the Q Series is faster and more user friendly than the competing trailed wrappers. It is an extremely maneuverable machine that requires little to no input from the driver.

The Q Series which takes its name from Quadrangle, as in four sides, emphasising its focus of square bale wrapping. The Q Series has two models within the range. The Q200-V has twin film dispenser (Q200-V) and the Q300-V has three film dispenser (Q300-V) options. Multiple dispensers Is made possible by the unique patented folding wrap arm mechanism developed by TANCO and delivers reliable speed. Up to 65 and 80 bales per hour, respectively.

The Q Series’ versatility cannot be underestimated with the ability to wrap any round or square bale on the market. Settings for different bale sizes can be saved within the controller; meaning when you move from a 120 x 140 twin-pack bale to a 80 x 70, this can be done by simply selecting the bale size and with a minimum of adjustment the Q Series will adjust roller position and wrapping speeds to ensure the correct number of layers and overlap.

Sensors within the roller record the position of the bale during wrapping. When unloading, the Auto-Levelling feature, automatically levels the bale for off-loading, avoiding the time-consuming job of manually adjusting the bale position from the controller.

Proportional Hydraulics
Proportional hydraulics allows for incremental speed adjustment. Ramping wrap arm speed up and down ensuring a smoother and more consistent wrapping operation, resulting in less vibration and longer machine life.

The Auto-Load feature allows for continuous wrapping without operator input to the controller. When the bale contacts the Auto-Load trigger the bale Is automatically loaded and the wrapping cycle begins.

Wrap Arm Unfold and Fold
Tanco’s patented system for unfolding and folding multiple wrap arms into a single cut and hold system has made it possible for 3 point linkage wrappers, which are lighter and more compact than their trailed counterparts, to reach the highest levels of performance and bale count.

Telescopic Cut & Start
A patented system, the telescopic Cut & Start extends to three times its resting state extending and then retracting to gather the film into a single strand. Once gathered and held, only then is the film cut, resulting in an ultra-reliable system you can have confidence in.

Variable Speed Hydraulics
The use of proportional hydraulics means hydraulic functions, such as wrap arm speed, can be variably adjusted to ramped up and down ensuring a smoother and more consistent wrapping operation, resulting in less vibration and longer machine life.

RDS Expert Plus Controller
The Expert Plus controller has.a larger screen for faster data input and read-out.
