Bale Slicer Fits Skid Steer Loaders
A new bale slicer for skid steer loaders can pick up and carry the biggest bales in addition to slicing them into pieces.
  "It lets you haul bales from storage to the feeding area and then cut them up," says Tim Dresen, Precision Farm Machinery, Oelwein, Iowa.
  The bale slicer fits most skid steers with bi-directional auxiliary hydraulics. It's equipped with four spears and a 6-ft. 10-in. long blade that's raised and lowered by a 3-in. dia. hydraulic cylinder. The blade is protected by a steel guard and has an open height of 8 ft. The unit weighs about 500 lbs. and has a lift capacity of 2,500 lbs.
  "You have a much better view of the bale than you do with 3-pt. bale slicers, and you have the maneuverability of a skid loader," says Dresen. "The knife is long enough to cut through bales up to 6 ft. high and 5 ft. 2 in. wide.
  Sells for $2,280.
