- Model RP445 - Welger



Variable means: flexible. And that characterizes this wide range of round balers. Whether operating in hay, straw or wet silage, the Lely Welger RP 445 model offers you the best performance. There is a lot of flexibility in the wide range of possibilities that this machine has to offer. Bale density, bale diameter, tying material and even cutting length can be controlled from the baler handset in the tractor cab if necessary. According to your requirements and applications, the baler can be fitted with either a feed rotor or one of three different types of chopping units. The 500 mm feed rotor features an exceptionally wide opening towards the bale chamber ensuring its huge – and renowned – output. The durable rotor has tines made from resilient steel.

As standard, the RP 445 model comes with a 2.25 m wide free running pick-up with five tine bars. Pick‑up capacity is huge; the long 5.60 mm tines have large coils and are therefore ideal to lift the crop from the stubble. Due to the 2.25 m width of the pick‑up, wide swaths can be picked up easily, even when making sharp turns with the machine. The pick-up suspension is adjustable and in combination with the height chains, flexible tines and pick-up wheels, excellent ground contour following and the cleanest possible forage are ensured.   

Obviously, machines with a massive throughput need a drive system that is able to withstand the consequent high loads. The rugged Powersplit transmission (with oil-bath) equally divides the amount of power required by the rotor and the bale chamber. Thanks to the Powersplit transmission, all shafts rotate in the correct direction straight away so that additional transmissions are not required while power loss remains restricted at the same time.
