Enter the bale diameter (ft) into the Bale Wrap Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bale Wrap. 

Bale Wrap Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Bale Wrap.

BW = pi*BD*6


  • BW is the Bale Wrap (length of bale wrap needed (ft))
  • BD is the bale diameter (ft) 

How to Calculate Bale Wrap?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bale Wrap.

  1. First, determine the bale diameter (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the ${V2}. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BW = pi*BD*6.
  4. Finally, calculate the Bale Wrap.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bale diameter (ft) = 2.5

BW = pi*BD*6 = ?
