"Rebaler" For Big Square Bales

After years of success building and selling an "unroller" that turns big round bales into more user-friendly small square bales (first introduced in FARM SHOW's Vol. 23, No. 6 issue), T. Whipple Simpson of Cochran, Ga., has just introduced a first-of-its-kind separator for big square bales that breaks bales apart and "rebales" them into small bales.
  Simpson says he's already sold two of the new separators, which were shown to the public for the first time this fall at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Georgia. "People have been amazed at how well it works. This machine lets you make big square bales in the field, which are faster and more efficient to make, and then turn them into small square bales for customers who don't want to have to deal with big bales."
  Simpson built the square bale "rebaler" at the request of commercial hay producers from all over the country who had seen his big round baler unroller. He has sold 65 round bale units since it came on the market.
  To "rebale" a big square bale, it's placed on a conveyor table that pulls it into a separator head that separates the flakes, dropping the loose hay onto another conveyor that carries it into a small square baler. The finished small bales are carried away by a bale elevator for stacking or loading.
  Sells for $19,000 plus shipping, including the three major pieces of the system and the hydraulic valve bank.
