    Mate of mine is looking for a wrapper.
    Likes the Mc hale Orbital.
    But likes the price of a Tanco with radial arms much better! For the amount of work he does it would be easier justifyed.

    What are peoples opinions on Tanco in general?

    McHale 991 hispeed would be my choice. Proven design and simple to use. Those twin arms are troublesome enough.

    There was someone on here a while back with a 1400 I think, they were having trouble with it breaking the wrap on start off, can't think who it was now.:unsure:
    There was a orbital back in our local McHale dealer recently because the guy couldn't get it to turn the bales, it was fine straight behind the baler but if they were left and got a bit of a flat spot they wouldn't turn, went back to a HS2000 apparently.

    Tbh it depends on the workload. It’s very hard to beat a turntable wrapper in terms of durability but as high speed wrappers go, Tanco would be best.
