BaleSkii FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it Work?
A combination of self-adjusting materials and the auto-spring back pattern machined into the product, uniformly compresses the hay and keeps it compressed when the baler plunger retracts. This ensures a constant uniform movement of hay through the bale chamber.
How will it help me?

The BaleSkiis® baler liner makes uniform bales in weight, length and density so:

  • You can use less experienced help to run the baler.
  • Your picking, transporting and stacking equipment performs faster and more efficiently.

The BaleSkiis® baler liner makes heavier bales if desired which:

  • reduces your trucking and handling costs.

The BaleSkiis® baler liner stabilizes friction which results in:

  • reducing the amount of tension in your bale chamber.
  • reducing horsepower and fuel consumption.
  • reducing knotter problems.
  • reducing wear, break downs, and down time.

This all adds up to a cost savings that eliminates frustration and increases your haying profits! It makes very uniform bales in varying temperatures, moisture, and crop types resulting in bales that are consistent in weight and density.

How hard is it to install?
You will receive a complete kit with all fasteners, installation instructions, and pictures of how to put it in your machine. There's nothing to change or modify in your baler. It takes about 2 hours to install a complete kit in a small baler and about 1 full day for a large baler, depending on the model and the size of the baler. Installation is not complicated or difficult, but there is a lot of drilling so it can be time-consuming.
Will it work in my baler?
We make kits for all makes and models of square balers, from very old to brand new balers just out of the factory.
Will it work in my climate and for my kind of hay?
Over the years our customer list has grown to include folks from Arizona to Alaska, West Texas to Walla Walla Washington, Bakersfield to British Columbia, Pensacola to Punxsatawney, and just about every other corner of the US and Canada! The reasons they buy and use the BaleSkiis® vary as much as their climates do. The varieties of hay and forage these folks are successfully baling with the BaleSkiis® is just as lengthy and has included:

Alfalfa * Straw * Orchard Grass * Bermuda * Timothy Pine Straw * Rye Grass * Sudan Grass * Corn Stalks

Call us and we'll hook you up with someone in your area that's already tried them. You won't be the first, but don't be the last!
What's it made of?
BaleSkiis® are made from a specially designed plastic that has a built-in ability to self-adjust to varying temperatures and moistures. The material has a specific pattern machined into it (similar to X-country skiis) to prevent springback.
How long will it last?
We've had one installed in a small baler for 15 years. We've put 25,000 bales/year through it and it shows no wear. The specs on the plastic material shows 3 times the wear-resistance of mild steel. We have customers who've had them installed for over 10 years and are still using or have sold the baler with the still intact BaleSkiis® installed.

How does it reduce leaf loss?

The BaleSkiis® baler liner is made from special self-adjusting material. It also has an auto-spring back pattern machined into the product so it uniformly compresses the hay and keeps it compressed when the baler plunger retracts. This ensures a constant uniform movement of hay through the bale chamber. This means that the hay is not moving back and forth in the chamber breaking leaves off of stems.

  • Puts more high protein leaves in the bale, not on the ground.
  • Puts more pounds per acre in the bale, not on the ground.

Tests conducted by the Alberta Farm Machinery Research Center showed a 30% reduction in leaf loss! Click Here to read test results.
