Push off bale fork
"It's the first push-off big bale carrier on the market," say representatives of Howard-Farmhand, manufacturers of a bale fork for front-end loaders that'll unload bales hydraulically with a push-off plate.
Howard-Farmhand, based in England, licenses the name "Farmhand" from the U.S. company for use in Europe but there is no other connection between the two companies. So far, the innovative new bale-handling accessory is not available in the U.S.
The push-off fork fits any loader and works with both single and double acting hydraulics. The fork also features a back and forth tint mechanism which can be used if the particular front-end loader it's mounted on is equipped with bucket-tilt hydraulics. A round bale extension lift, which will lift the bale up another 5 ft. for tall stacks, is available for use with the fork.
Push-off bale fork sells for about $375, all brackets included.
