Double Bale Forks For Front & Back Of Deere 4020 2-WD Tractor
I made a set of double bale forks for the front and back of my Deere 4020 2-WD tractor. They allow me to haul up to four round bales at a time. The front forks mount in place of the bucket on my Farmhand loader bucket. The forks are made to pierce the bale rather than go under it, which results in greater stability and easier unloading. I use the forks in the field to place bales in double rows and later load them onto a truck.
To make the main frames of the forks I used the steel beams and angle iron off an old Graham-Hoeme chisel plow. The four 47-in. long teeth on each set of forks are off a Deere moldboard plow. The weight of the bales re-quires a lot of support up front, so I replaced the original front axle on the tractor with the front axle off a semi truck.
