Marathon’s TIEger® Auto-Tie Horizontal Baler uses highly efficient gear twisters, which eliminates pigtails. This accounts for more than 10% reduction in wire consumption and related costs. The gear twisters and inserter needles are hydraulically driven and wire is dispensed directly from our unique box holders. Hydraulic wire positioners precisely align the wires for pick-up by the inserter needles, making the TIEger® the most reliable tier on the market.
Marathon auto-tie balers are designed for high productivity and ease of use with advanced electronics, such as the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1500 PLC and Maestro® color touch-screen operator interface. From this interface, the operator can control a variety of baler functions such as auto and manual modes, bale settings, system pressure, bale length, and perform computerized diagnostics. The main panel box features IEC controls.
