    The wrapping motion is common to palletizing equipment; the bale manipulator, that's something! Compensates any irregularity of bale, starts right from previous cutoff of film - no waste, doesn't move more than needed. wraps the logical narrow circumference first, covers each corner apparently airtight.
    THAT hay will last until the film oxidizes from sunlight.
    Do wonder what means to load open bale, then used to transfer and stack, probably a squeeze clamp, it sure won't slide off forks. Is this a tow & PTO or self powered machine?
    Nifty and efficient.
    They rent out for Christmas? That night will go LOTS quicker!

    Glad you liked this one. I'm a big fan of machine GIFs. On the one hand, they're inarguably considered "lite" content. On the other, they can provide great fodder for conversation.

    I also like machine function used for gentle handling. Fruit harvesting, soft food manufacturing, etc. Gingerly handling items with machines is so much more complex than more steadily fixing workpieces. One of my favorites is the hamburger bun defect detection GIF.

    If they cold only make the protective wrap edible then I might be on board But since most plastic wrapped hay is destined for longer storage life I can see the usefulness

    why so many wraps on the small bale ? looks like twice as many as needed.

    Agreed there are possibly a few wraps too many. Than small bale as you called it can weigh anywhere from 1200 to 1500 lbs even up to 2000 lbs though.they are about 4 1/2 ft by 4 1/2 feet
    Small rectangular bales are usually 18x24 x36" long, but most were about 42" and depending on what they are can weigh from 35 lbs all the way up to 140 lbs for green alfalfa
    The large square bales as they are called are 4 ft by 4 ft by 8 ft nominal can hit over 5000 lbs
