Bale Wrapper
If you can't justify the cost of a commercial big bale wrapping machine, you'll like this "low tech" bale wrapping idea developed by British farmer Clive Allard.
After forming a bale, he slips spikes into the center of each end of the bale, and then rolls the bale along the ground with lengths of chain that run from the spikes to the tractor drawbar. As the bale rolls along the ground, plastic is pulled off a roll held on a drop-down frame supported by ropes off the back of the tractor. One man drives the tractor and the other runs the wrapper. They leave the ends of the bales open.
