Built with purpose, the TL5500 easily switches from round to square bales with a few quick adjustments. Raise the two table rails to give the bale proper clearance and raise the roller bed to ensure the proper discharge angle.

Pre-Tensioners Feature Image


To create the 55% (approx.) stretch of the plastic, the pre-tensioners are knurled which allows them to grip and pull the plastic between the rollers activating the bonding agent in the film.

The film sensor automatically shuts down the wrapper hoop when it detects a break in the film, or when the wrapper runs out of wrap.

Twin Wrap Kit Feature Image

Twin Wrap Kit

Tubeline's Twin Wrap Kit holds two rolls of film and passes them through a single stretcher. This activates the wraps' bonding compound to form a strong 2-Ply layer of film that stands up to tough hay stalks and folds them over helping to prevent piercing of the wrap.

By combining two sets of two rolls for a total of four, Tubeline's twin wrap kit provides all the same protection as four separate stretchers with the additional benefit of producing a more durable bonded 2-Ply film that stands up better than four single ply layers.

Laser Steering System

Laser Steering System

Optional on all AX2 inline wrappers, the laser steering system is designed to automatically steer the wrapper, spacing your bale rows consistently every time.
