    Hi all,
    My baler guy used some cheap quality net wrap and he said he did two wraps with it , bales didn’t hold their shape and he has put his hands up about it. No problem there.
    My question is what is the best net out there and goes edge to edge for a Fusion 2 and how many revolutions also. TIA

    Always use tama net here ...no problems.

    16 wraps if they are being used this winter....24 if need to hold a bit longer or it's very dry or stalky and you think it'll puncture.....

    By wraps I just mean one full revolution of plastic around the bale. By wraps I presume you mean he covered the bale fully and then covered it again, either way I don't think wraps means the same thing to the two of us.

    My bales last year and this have only black wrap. Great job I think.
