John Deere LW11 Series In-Line Bale Wrapper

Double tap to zoom



The control box and levers are the control center of the in-line bale wrappers.  

A few of the uses are to turn the unit on and off, control the bale ramp, and bale push. 

The adjustable tongue (hitch) folds neatly out of the way for wrapping. It is located at the opposite end of where the bales are wrapped. The adjustable tongue makes moving and repositioning the machine a quick and easy task, saving time and money.

Traction implement tires make the in-line wrappers sure-footed on wet and uneven terrain to help get the machine where it needs to be for wrapping bales.

The LW11 Series comes standard with the traction implement tires, and they are available on the LW12 Series only when ordered with single- or dual-power drive.

The twin-wrap kit is an optional feature on all LW Series In-Line Bale Wrappers.

This kit provides a double layer of wrap, increasing the amount of wrap applied to bales. It increases the wrapping process, saving time.

The film wrap sensor automatically shuts down the wrapping cycle when the machine runs out of film or breaks.

The optional remote control is for steering, starting, and stopping the unit. It allows the operator to conveniently control the machine while loading bales.

An optional 20-hp Honda engine and high-flow pump provide increased capacity to get the job completed more quickly.  

NOTE: LW Series In-Line Bale Wrappers come standard with a 13-hp Honda engine. Honda is a U.S.-registered trademark of Honda Motor Co.

The optional single-power drive is available on both the the LW11 and LW12 Series In-Line Bale Wrappers. This feature allows the operator to maneuver the unit without attaching it to a tractor. The single-power drive has one rear tire, providing traction to the unit.

The bale push is unique because it is an integrated part of Frontier's LW Series In-Line Bale Wrappers. It is the first step of the final bale push-off process.

The optional dual-power drive offers the same great features as the single-power drive, such as allowing the operator to maneuver the unit without attaching it to a tractor. The optional dual-power drive allows both rear tires to provide added traction, rather than just one tire. This feature is great for wet or uneven ground conditions where traction is limited. The optional dual-power drive is available on both the LW11 and LW12 Series In-Line Bale Wrappers.

The optional work lights provide increased visibility when wrapping bales before dawn or after dusk.
