Net wrap style log balers posch 'pack fix' etc

Recommended Posts

Anybody in Firewood land ever used the posch pack fix style netwrap log Baler systems?

 

Using IBC's to season and kiln dry in but I'm sick of the sight of them around the yard empty and moving the damn things when empty is the most frustrating thing in existence ha! I'd love to pack split Logs up straight off the processor and stack them away to season or kiln. Could potentially even deliver in the form still...

 

Any opinions positive/nuetral/ negative?

 

The plastic waste bugs me a bit but I think I'll probably end up using a lot less fuel moving cages about on balance.

Think Binderburger also do one thats better suited to Europallets.

 

Having had several good looking bags fail in the last week ( eyes breaking, one lead to the whole corner splitting away) I am planning to wrap some bale net wrap around an old kiln dried crate and see how it stands up after a few months seasoning outside.  Looks like it can be powered hydraulically.

Local chap near us made a homemade version of the Posch. He powdered the netting tool with his timber crane and rotator. 
 

as far as I’m aware he was thinking of selling if you’re interest I can pass on his details.

I made my own using an ibc cage without the pallet and the top and bottom of the bottle cut off. Cut the bottom third off the cage drill a  few holes in the bottle and cable tie the bottle to the cage. 

Set it on a pallet, fill it with logs and lift the ibc off while wrapping with the net wrap.  

It works very well and is easier than it sounds. 

Stacking the logs in there is better as it holds together well. Don't skimp on the wrap because picking a collapsed stack is pants.

Fair play Bob that's a cracking little invention! Would be done in seconds with our 360. The rotator is rapid!!
