Laois-based Wilson Engineering marked its entry to the chaser market in 2014 with the launch of the Monster Move at the Ploughing.
Initially, the firm offered three size options – six-, eight- and 10-bale variations. However, in recent years this offering has grown to include 12-, 14- and 16-bale offerings.
The bale cages are constructed from rolled high-tensile 80x80x8mm box section, while the pipe work on each side cage is constructed with 5mm pipe.
Once loaded, each cage is locked in place with two spring-loaded hydraulically operated catches on each side.
The chaser sits on high-speed axles with rocking bogey designs. The chassis has been designed by Wilson and is constructed using 10mm box section.
Optional extras include a sprung drawbar, a high-speed commercial air-braking load-sensing system, a steering axle and a steering drawbar (unique to Wilson Engineering).
Tyre options include 550, 560, 620 or 710mm.
Wilson says its chasers are fully shot-blasted, primed and painted with industrial two-pack paint. The machine comes with LED lights as standard.
Pricing for an eight-bale unit starts at €20,000 plus VAT, while 10-bale machines start at €24,000 plus VAT.
