Knoll Midifix II
The KNOLL MidiFix II is our latest development in the field of MidiBalers. The MidiFix II combines the operations of pressing and wrapping in one machine. In developing this new model, we asked ourselves the question, “what does a professional user expect from a KNOLL MidiBaler?”
By developing a new machine from this point of view, we have succeeded in offering a professional machine that scores on the basis of many highlights.
POWERFUL, DECISIVE AND FAST. FOR HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL USE!
A MidiFix II consists, just like the regular MidiFix, of a bale chamber equipped with 14 symmetrical chamber rollers which guarantee an exceptionally high bale density and bale rotation. The MidiFix II is equipped with a newly developed wrapper which ensures a reliable and fast bale transfer. In combination with a fast wrapper equipped with a double wrapping arm, this ensures an unmatched capacity.
The MidiFix II is a machine for professional users and is therefore perfectly suitable for users working in contract work. It does not matter what kind of product is being processed, silage, hay or straw bales. The machine is very easy to operate and is fully automatic. Also in combination with the optional film binding this machine distinguishes itself in the market segment!
A COMBINATION FOR PROFESSIONALS, SIMPLY THE BEST!
KNOLL MidiBalers make expectations come true! Our machines combine the operations of pressing and winding in one machine.
This ensures an efficient and effective process that guarantees high reliability and capacity (number of bales/hour).
This working method of KNOLL MidiBalers ensures that bales of the best quality can be produced due to direct air exclusion which ensures the best feed quality. In addition, this combined mode of operation ensures economic use of the machine by using only one tractor and operator.
Thoughtful technology and an efficient process ensure the highest possible efficiency. A fully automatic process ensures easy operation.
Know-how from “our own house” which makes working with KNOLL MidiBalers a pleasure!
The robust but compact construction of a KNOLL MidiFix II allows the machine to be used in all conditions. The stable frame guarantees a long service life for the machine. The single-axle construction with large wheels makes the machine particularly maneuverable.
The low center of gravity ensures perfect crop pickup by the pickup and excellent maneuverability.
Due to the even weight distribution and the single-axle construction, the MidiFix II has excellent driving characteristics, even when distances need to be covered.
PICK-UP FOR MAXIMUM CROP INTAKE
Making a good midi bale starts with proper intake of the base product. Exact and short cut forage is the basic requirement for producing quality silage. The pick-up of the KNOLL MidiFix II with 4 rows of tines ensures maximum intake capacity through its excellent ground adaptation. The steered pick-up with a working width of 1.70 m is equipped with large augers on both sides which ensure an optimum material flow to the rotor, even with wide swaths. In front of the rotor is a mechanically driven crop roller. This ensures excellent compaction of the material and increases the feed capacity.
ROTOR FEEDING & CUTTING SYSTEM
A quality product can only be delivered when the crop is cut short and effectively.
A 3-star rotor with high intake capacity is built into the feed system. With a diameter of 400mm and welded rows of teeth, the rotor transports large, dry swaths as well as short swaths effectively into the bale chamber.
The rotor feed system of a MidiFix II is designed for optimal feed intake in all conditions.
The hydraulically operated cutting device is located at the bottom of the rotor. The cutting device is equipped with 7 cutting knives. Due to the very small distance between the rotor teeth and the knives, the feed is cut precisely.
FILM & NET BINDING SYSTEM
A KNOLL MidiFix II is equipped with a net binding system as standard. Optionally, the machine can be equipped with a film binding system. With film binding, net rolls can of course still be installed.
The use of mantelfilm offers substantial advantages for improving silage quality.
With mantel film, the bales become more compact and are better protected by the film layers. Film and film provides an additional oxygen barrier.
The bales can be opened and recycled more easily because the mantelfilm and wrapping film can be removed together as one waste product.
OPTIMAL PRESS DENSITY
At the center of the machine is the pressing chamber with a size of 85 cm. x 90 cm. The pressing chamber is an important part of the machine. It consists of 14 heavy-duty roller presses which rotate on roller bearings. These rollers have a special profile in order to create the highest possible press density. Directly behind the rotor is the special 'front roller', which ensures an optimal rotation of the bale - regardless of the type of crop being pressed.
The tailgate is equipped with mechanical hooks which keep the press chamber closed during the feeding process and simultaneously ensure the highest possible press density.
WRAPPING OF THE BALE
The KNOLL MidiFix II is equipped with a wrapping table which drives under the bale chamber at the start of the baling process. As soon as the bale is tied, it is transported to the wrapping position without ground contact. Direct transfer of the bale; fast, clean and without additional loading arm.
Moving the bale is easy, reliable and safe - even on sloping terrain. The bale transfer takes a few seconds, so that downtime is minimal.
The MidiFix II is equipped with a double wrapping arm with two 500 mm film stretch units. The automatic film control immediately stops wrapping when there is an empty roll of wrapping film or when the film tears. One can also continue wrapping with one film roll after this and automatically double the number of wraps.
FILM BINDING SYSTEM FOR BETTER PRESERVATION
A KNOLL MidiFix II can optionally be equipped with a film binding system. When this is present on the machine, it is also still possible to use net. Changing film or net is just changing a setting in the control system.
The use of mantel film offers proven benefits for improving silage quality:
1) Press density / bale density. Bales become more compact and are better protected by the film layers. Also, the presence of mantel film provides an additional oxygen barrier.
2) One type of residual waste. Mantel and wrapping film can be processed as one residual product after the bale is opened. This simplifies the opening and recycling of bales.
For proper application, a net roll of 105 cm and a mantel film roll of 100 cm should be used. The mechanically adjustable braking force system ensures tightly wrapped bales with net or mantel film.
A MIDI BALE FITS THROUGH ANY DOOR!
A midi bale has characteristics that make this type of bale particularly interesting for the end user. This type of bale is constantly increasing in popularity and has acquired its 'own' place in the market.
1) Low feed rate. Also useful for the small or hobby farmer
2) Small bale size. Less chance of heating and mold
3) Fits through any door. Light weight and easy to move
4) Packaged airtight and dust-free. Wrapped in wrapping film, long shelf life
5) Logistics. Midi bales are easy to move and transport
A midi bale typically has a weight of 75 -150 kg, depending on the product being processed.
In proportion, one midi bale equals:
3 to 4 small square hay bales
- 1/3 large round bale
