Double Bale Carrier
South Dakota farmer Milo Sayler, of Menno, had problems with the tines digging into the ground when he tried to pick up 2 round bales at once on hilly terrain.
He solved the problem by making a carrier with two sets of forks that hinge off the frame of his home-made bale carrier. Each pair of forks hinges independently, enabling the carrier to pick up bales sitting side by side on a hill, or on uneven ground. The pair of forks on the "high" side of the hill will slideover the ground rather than digging in, Sayler points out.
The carrier is 5 1/2 ft. wide and the forks, spaced 40 in. apart, are made of 1/4 in. by 2 in. by 4 in. tubing.
The carrier attaches to any Category II or III, 3 pt. hitch.
Other uses include moving pallets, plywood and small buildings.
Sayler custom builds the two-bale carrier for $570.
