TIEger Auto-Tie Horizontal Recycling Balers

Highly Efficient and Precision-Built

Marathon® TIEger® auto-tie horizontal recycling balers use highly efficient gear twisters, eliminating bale wire pigtails. This feature of the Tieger auto-tie baler results in more than a 10% reduction in wire consumption and related costs. TIEger auto-tie baler ear twisters and inserter needles are hydraulically driven and baling 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 recycling baler one of the most reliable auto-tie horizontal balers on the market.

Marathon auto-tie recycling balers are designed for high-productivity and ease of use with advanced electronics, such as the programmable PLC controller and 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.
