Pulp bale clamps are normally designed to carry 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 8 pulp bale units at a time. Sometimes the same clamps are also used to handle single bales and non-unitized bale sets. When selecting the attachment to handle pulp bales, pay special attention to how, and with which bale unit combinations the handling will happen.
Recovered paper (waste paper) is collected from the consumers, then compressed (often in local collection facilities) into bales and transported to the pulp factory. Waste paper bale handling is generally harsher than any other bale handling operation, and attachments often need increased protection against wear and tear, and all moving and hydraulic components must be well protected against hitting and dropping objects.
