Picking - Epic Fail

Tuesday, 30th April 2013 // Cotton Dictionary, A Cotton Season

Every job has it's hazards... Ours more than most, and every now and again there is a great big fail!

On the very odd occasion our 7760 round-bale cotton pickers have a glitch and something goes wrong. It just so happens that the plastic wrap, that should have wrapped around this bale, got caught on a roller inside the machine and wrapped it instead. Without the wrapping to hold it together the bale was ejected into a great big heap which then has to be hand fed back into the picker shutes when we get the chance to pick it all up.How big is the B. in Bugger! Lucky things like this happen so rarely.
