The movers showing work good and their is a sliding one for square bales. I'm about 800 mile for you so crop may be different but dropping a wrapped bale on alfalfa stubble around here will damage the plastic unless you almost double the wraps. I've been wrapping hay for over 30 yrs and 10 too 20,000 per year. Their is no secret too it, Keep the oxygen out your hay keeps, leave oxygen in (not tight bale ) or get holes in the wrap and it spoils. My advice would be defiantly demo one first and wait 40 or more days and open some bales up. Their where a few that showed up around here but i don't see them being used anymore. For the cost difference I would get just a baler and a line wrapper such as a H&S. Then you can wrap what different balers bale. About 1/2 the hay we wrap could have been left too dry but farmers are realizing that soft hay with the leaves in tact will = enough more feed per acre too more than offset the cost.... Dennis
