McHale Farm Machinery is a family-run business that was founded in the west of Ireland in the 1970s. The firm started life as a retail outlet for farm machinery before going on to design and manufacture its own range of equipment.

The tough farming conditions in the west of Ireland proved to be an ideal proving ground for the firm’s robust machinery. In the 1980s, Martin and Padraic McHale moved the company from being a reseller of tractors and other machinery to being a manufacturer in their own right. The brothers saw that there was a gap in the market for a machine capable of cutting the pit silage common in the local area.

The machines that were available to do this work were known to struggle with the tough ryegrass that was prevalent in the region.

The McHale brothers therefore decided to manufacture their own machine to be better suited to this environment. Their first machine was the ‘Silomac’ blockcutter, and this was soon followed by a family of slurry pump machines. The brothers still guide the McHale company today, with Martin leading the sales and marketing department and Padraic in charge of production and research.

McHale Focus on Round Balers

In 1988 the company produced its first round bale wrappers and reached a decision to refocus their efforts in this niche. Much research and development effort went into producing the first machines, and the result was a family of round bale wrappers designed for static and field wrapping. In 1990 the success of these products saw the company develop a network of dealers in the UK, and McHale wrappers started to be exported across Europe. This was followed by further expansion in 1994 which saw the company export its products to Australia.

Square Balers Follow

In 1995 the company launched its first ever square wrapper — again designed for both static and field wrapping. 1996 saw McHale begin exports to New Zealand, and in 1998 they produced the powerful 998 square bale wrapper with twin dispenser which has become renowned as the quickest such machine in the industry.

New McHale Factory

Increased demand for McHale products saw the company move to a custom-built manufacturing plant in 1999, and in 2000 they launched the high-output HS2000 round bale wrapper with twin dispenser. This was followed in 2002 by the McHale Fusion, an integrated combined baler wrapper. The HS2000 has a patented bale transfer process and is a robust baler that has a wrapping ring integrated.Mchale V640 Baler

The McHale 550, a round baler with fixed chamber, arrived in 2004, and in the same year the company’s expansion saw them open a second factory in Hungary. The company expanded its F5 family of fixed chamber round balers in 2007 when it added the F540 and F560 — the former a non-chopper machine and the latter a fully automatic 23-knife baler. In 2009 the company completed its range with the V660, the company’s first variable round chamber baler.

McHale - A Success Story

Today McHale is an Irish success story, exporting 90% of its products and selling its machinery in more than 50 countries. The company still specialises in round balers and round bale wrappers along with integrated baler wrappers and square bale wrappers. McHale machinery is the result of extensive R&D and field testing, which is a combination that makes used McHale machinery a sound investment.
