Homemade Bale Accumulator
I built this inexpensive bale accumulator to mount on a front-end loader. I use it to push bales into a pile in the field. The 14-ft. long base of the accumulator, which attaches to the loader arms, consists of 3 by 6's, while the 6 ft. arms were made out of 2 by 6's. It's 18 in. deep and has a truss built out of iron pipe in back to keep it rigid. It quick-taches to loader arms with two bolts. It's large enough to push 15 to 20 small square bales at a time, and you can push hundreds of bales into one pile, then manually load them onto a wagon. Cost under $100 to build and works like a dream. (Billy R. Hatfield, 3409 Hwy. 63, Speedwell, Tenn. 37870; ph 423 869-8311)
