Wanting more productivity and a more cost effective option for silage film? Expert is a slightly thinner micron film allowing the length to be increased, and the cost per bale to be reduced.
We ensure our nets are manufactured with high quality raw material providing maximum tensile strength and high resistance to tearing. Feedback includes great coverage, trouble-free running, very strong, cuts clean and tail sticks well to the bale.
We import a range of nets to suit your demands and machinery.
Atlas and Golden Net are certified by the DLG (German Agricultural Society), passing the Signum-Test. This means it has been tested on all popular balers and was submitted to a number of performance tests on its technical characteristics. This European company is the second largest manufacturer of bale net worldwide, so it is no wonder it performs.
Juta net has been tested and proven in New Zealand for over 16 years. Again this net is European and strong. Juta net is highly recommended for Krone balers, new and old, and anyone requesting more coverage on their bales. Juta net is reverse wound to help eliminate splitting when running in the machine.
Barbier are our manufacturer and supplier of NRF.
We have proven success here in New Zealand compared to other well-known brands and through a variety of machines. Isolstar™ Press is manufactured using the latest pre-stretch technology resulting in a very strong NRF allowing you to produce bales to their optimum. We encourage Isolstar™ Press to be used in conjunction with Expert (see silage wrap).
Since the inception of Independent Wrap, we have been importing twine from Juta. We have had no reason to change – the product is fantastic and the price is competitive!
Juta twine has excellent fibrillation resulting in a high quality strong twine with tight knots you can depend on. High density balers are demanding more from twines and due to the high quality raw materials and advanced technology used, these twines deliver high knot strengths, high tear resistance, and considerably less wear on your machines.
Juta twine is manufactured in the Czech Republic and although they may not be a mainstream brand, it should not be underestimated as the performance in Europe and here in New Zealand is outstanding!
We have a range of twines to suit your demands and machinery.
|Brand||Colour||Knot Strength (average)|
|Juta Master Force 110||Light Blue||290kg|
|Juta Master 130||Beige||245kg|
|Juta Big Square||Blue||215kg|
|Juta Medium Square||Rust||200kg|
Independent Wrap pit covers are imported from Europe and are manufactured with 100% virgin material. Quality is our focus and our premium grade covers enable you to trust and rely on the product giving you confidence in the completed job.
Our standard black/white pit covers are high quality with high impact resistance. Metre markings are printed large and clear.
Manufactured by Barbier, Isolstar™ Flex is used underneath the main pit cover. It is a thin flexible film to follow the contours of the pit to reduce air pockets.
Reduced air = Reduced waste = Visible results!
These small, manageable, inexpensive rolls are perfect for using for select clients, or as a progression to the 2in1 Pit Covers.
Vacuum film has been so successful that the demand is now for the vacuum film to be included on the same roll as the pit cover – 2 covers, 1 roll. This improves the application process of the covers to the stack. The expense is negligible in comparison to the visible results – reduce waste to the top inch of the stack.
We have taken our 2in1 Pit Covers a step further – the vacuum film is a partial oxygen barrier. The vacuum film is manufactured with resins with a higher barrier to gases which slows down the transfer of oxygen and improves the forage conservation. With the extra consideration taken to use 2in1 covers we feel it is important to have high quality all round that your clients will appreciate and come accustomed to.
Imported from Europe, our silage bags are distinguished in the market for their strength allowing you to take full advantage of the capacity and be confident in the completed job. We currently import 10 foot bags, 9 foot and 12 foot are available on request.
"Juta Big Blue twine has ran trouble free through our Massey Ferguson square baler for the last few seasons, due to its high quality, strength and reliability. This twine's performance is incredible; no knot rolls, no time out of the seat!! Well recommended".
- Shane Foster – Foster Farming 2013 Ltd – Rakaia (2017)
“This season we went back to using Newrap. It may cost a little more but its consistency through our machines and puncture resistance is well worth the extra expense to know the job is done right! The lack of tails is great – better to have the wrap on the bale than blowing in the wind!!”
- Dean Parkes – Parkes Contracting Ltd – Te Awamutu (2017)

- Lloyd Gernhoefer – Gernhoefer Contracting Ltd – Eltham (2016)

- Ian Comins – Comins Contracting Ltd – Te Awamutu (2015)

“Net Replacement Film goes a long way towards making better baleage, and I-Press from Independent Wrap does the job for me. It runs well in my Fusion 3 Plus, it is a very strong product and we get good bale numbers per roll.”
- Robert Sims – Sims Contractors Ltd – Otaki (2018)
“We have ran products from Independent Wrap since they have been in the lower South Island. We have trialled many twines in the past but the performance of the Juta is best, it ticks all the boxes. Atlas 1.3m net performs well through the Welger round balers, giving edge to edge cover every bale. Expert is outstanding in its field, whether used on squares or rounds, it has been consistent roll after roll, season after season.”
- Tony Holden – Tony Holden Contracting Ltd – Clinton (2018)
“Atlas 1.23m net is faultless through our McHale balers; it feeds and spreads well across the bale. The roll goes in the baler and needs no attention until it’s time for a new roll. Delivery is well organised and problem free.”
- Mike Morris – Morris Contracting Ltd – Otautau (2018)
"We have been running Titan which has proven to be a very tough, high quality wrap. It has operated incredibly well in our hot dry conditions, through both the tube wrappers and combi without fault. Back up is great with good communication and delivery when needed."
- Jacob Holdaway – Jacob Holdaway Contracting Ltd – Ashburton (2019)
"The 18m 2in1 pit covers have been a great success on all crop types. Visually the crop is very different to a standard covered pit, a nice golden colour with no spoilage. The configuration of the cover and ease of pulling out over the pit is very good. The covers are of a strong high dart quality. Local storage is also a huge benefit with timely deliveries."
- Steven Shearing – Steven Shearing Contracting Ltd – Riverton (2019)
"We use Isolstar Press Net Replacement Film through our New Holland. I-Press runs through the baler nicely and always spreads over the edge of the bale. With good bale numbers per roll and the strength of I-Press we are very happy with the performance and our tight solid bales."
- Michael Davidson – Davidson Contracting Ltd – Whanganui (2019)
"I used Newrap this season and found it to be a great, strong, reliable wrap. The product is consistent with minimal breaks while wrapping resulting in less time out of the tractor so we are more productive. With Paul being based locally in the Manawatu, the level of service has been fantastic!"
- Jeff Erard – Erard Contracting Ltd – Feilding (2019)
"We have been using Independent Wrap for our crop packaging products for 15 years. They have always provided quality products at a fair price. Their great service means deliveries are when and where we need them so we can be confident we can get the job done!"
- Aaron White – Owen White Ltd – Hunua (2019)
I can rely on Expert. It’s a high quality strong plastic that runs right out to the core every time. The added benefit of the 1900m length rolls allows me to get more bales wrapped before needing extra rolls brought out to the job.
- David Wordsworth – Wordsworth Partnership – Dargaville (2019)
“With the distances my guys have to travel to jobs, the longer covers are essential. 450m means less rolls and less annoying ends. There is no sacrifice on quality, walking and throwing tyres on these covers is not an issue.”
- Ross Alexander – Alexander Ag Ltd – Kaikohe (2020)
“As a large-scale goat farmer, we do all our own baling. I-Press 1.38 runs very well through our Fusion 3 Plus and gives us the security we need to know that when we go to feed out, we’re feeding quality.”
- Henry Smitstra – Smitstra Contracting – Matamata (2020)
“With making and trading bales we rely on good wrap. Agroland is very durable and consistent when wrapping round and square bales of varying crop types. As well as faultless running through the wrapper, it makes Agroland excellent value.”
- Tharan Rule – Hay Ruler Feed Supplies 2015 Ltd – Winton (2020)
“Expert performs very well and handles our coastal weather, battling the elements that’s thrown at it. Regardless of being in a stack or placed on the crop its performance is second to none.”
- Paul Menpes – Menpes Contracting – Riverton (2020)
“We have used 15m x 300m Pit Covers from Independent Wrap for five seasons. The quality is superior to anything else we’ve tried.”
- Jason Weld – Forage Services Ltd – Palmerston North (2020)
“We ran Titan which proved to be a high quality tough wrap. No issues meant less time out of the tractor saving time and money. Delivery and back up is fantastic!”
- Russell Agnew – Trusty Contracting Ltd – Hastings (2020)
“Master Force 110 has been well received by our operators and has run very well through our Claas Quadrants and MF2250/2270 balers. It is also very cost effective. The superior service from Independent Wrap has only been enhanced with Dave in the Upper South Island region.”
- Jacob Holdaway – Jacob Holdaway Contracting Ltd – Ashburton (2020)
“Switching to Golden Net proved to be a great decision. It is strong and runs through the balers without issues. You can just put the roll in and forget it until it runs out.”
- Craig Wilson – Multi Ag Ltd – Waimate (2020)
