Baling twines, or baler twine, also known as a sidewinder, sisal twister, baler twine, broom twine, and barn twines, are medium-sized diameter plastic tube sisal synthetic string used to tightly bind straw or hay with a machine thread that can be pulled through the fabric. The lines on the baler twine are woven in such a way as to pull tightly. Because of this pulling force, the baler twine binds objects with tremendous pressure. This type of binding has been around for a long time and is still being actively utilized today. They are primarily used by farmers for long-distance transport of grain and produce from farm to farm or storage facilities.
It is a good idea to purchase a variety of different sizes of baler twine for different applications. When purchasing baler twine, always check the weight of the string. A heavier string/bowel will be able to successfully bind more bales of hay or straw at one time because of the additional weight. The best choice is to purchase a few different sizes of ball winder, so you have one on hand for those unexpected moments when you need to bind extra supplies. Having an extra bale on hand can also be very helpful if you run out of hay during the fall or winter.
There are two main types of balers twines. One is the quick binder twines, and the other is the slow binders. The temporary binders are used for cutting fabric through the bale fibres and securing it with the help of a metal or wooden handle. The binders use a metallic or wooden handle to pull the bale through a series of braided sections. The slow bender uses braided sections that are held taut between two strips of fabric or hay.
In addition to being used in making baler twine, they can also be made from natural fibres. These include cottons, Saran and cotton. They are strong, durable, and can be dyed easily. The colour options are virtually limitless.
Many companies produce a variety of baler twine products based on the tensile strength of the different materials. Bamboo and sisal are two natural fibres used in baler twine production. Bamboo is more robust and more flexible than sisal twines. Both fibres are strong, but sisal is significantly stronger than bamboo due to its natural tensile strength. Bamboo and sisal twines are woven together to form a solid, lightweight material commonly used in baler twine.
All-cotton baler twine can be found in both soft and rigid varieties. The smooth mixture uses natural cotton thread, and the complex array uses man-made polyester yarn. Both types of raw materials are known for their durability and lightweight. This enables them to be used in a wide variety of applications.
