Hi does anyone have any experience using and International 430 baling machine and how the compression rate is on them. Baling is about to begin here and one customer would like to use it but I have no experience with this machine.

Thank you.

Best regards,

> I just wanted to say, that we've a new german so called "general" approval for straw as an insulation material. The main improvement is: it now allows to plaster directly on the straw (wasn't possible before), e.g. inside clay/ earth plaster outside lime plaster with hydrophobic paint. And some further less important changes, e.g. less restrictions for quality controls now (dimensions, binding, ...). We are able to use bales from nearby the building site without extra transportation, and by the way: for small residential building the manufacturer baustroh.de offers a very easy and inexpensive procedure. The client just calls the manufacturer, send 2 bales for pretest, if successful order full test. In addition to cost for the farmer and bale transportation from the field to site it currently costs 1.000€/ per house to have a fully legalised building material which allows the client to build extraordinary sustainable homes. There is no other fully legalised building material in Germany with such an easy and low cost certification.
