Add On Kicker For Round Bales
Manufactured by Green Country Mfg., Inc., in South Coffeyville, Okla., the new spring-loaded kicker is activated by the lift of the rear door. It consists of a wrap-around frame that attaches to each side of the door. Four 1 1/4-in. dia. springs - two on top and two on the sides - hold the kicker frame close in to the baler when the rear door is shut. When the door opens to drop a bale, the kicker is held in place by the bale as it comes out above it. As the door opens, the springs are stretched until finally, when the door is all the way up, enough tension is created by the springs that the kicker pushes the bale to the rear. When the door shuts, the kicker resets itself.
"It kicks with a lot more power than factory units that come as optional equipment on some new balers," says Floyd Wyrick, company representative. "It saves time by eliminating the need to back up and it saves wear and tear on transmissions because you don't have to clutch and shift so much."
The kicker requires no modification of the baler other than to drill a few holes. Sells for $825. Fits Deere, Hesston, IH, and Vermeer balers.
