Bale Trailer Doubles as Machinery Hauler
The 24-ft. tandem axle trailer holds 8 round bales and mounts in the bed of your pickup via a fifth wheel hitch. The trailer is equipped with a detachable bale loading arm. A "power shuttle" moves bales to the rear of the trailer, and the tandem axle moves forward to tip the rear of the trailer to the ground to unload bales and also to load and unload machinery.
"It's road legal and equipped with high-way tires, brakes, and lights," says Lynn Williams, sales manager, New Noble Distributors Inc., Nobleford, Alberta. "The power shuttle consists of a winch-driven cable connected to a steel pusher bar that runs on rails and is mounted across the front of the trailer. It automatically unloads bales into neat two-row stacks when the trailer is ramped downward. The axle is moved back and forth by a separate cable. The entire system is powered by a hydraulic pump mounted under the pickup hood and all operations are electrically controlled by pushing buttons in the pickup cab. You never have to get out of the pickup."
A rubber tire mounted in front of the trailer supports the bale arm and is tucked under the trailer for highway travel.
Sells for $17,800 (Canadian) with the bale arm. Power shuttle and power ramp are optional. A slide-on stock trailer is also available.
