Bale Mover Totes Two
"The main advantage of this bale mover is that you can carry two round bales at one time," says Darrell Bohnert, of Bohnert Welding, Jewell, Kan., noting that his new fork "slides under bales rather than stabbing them and tearing them apart. This is especially helpful on frozen down bales because less hay remains stuck to the ground."
You should be able to cut hay hauling time in half with the new fork. And, if you have a bale moving attachment for your front tractor loader, the job will go even faster, says Bohnert.
Hitching up to any Category II 3 pt. hitch, the bale mover has four teeth, 3 in. in dia., 63 in. long, spaced about 30 in. apart. Two teeth slide under each bale to lift it rather than stabbing like some models.
The frame of the unit is made of 3 1/2 in. square tubing. It's 11 ft. 3 in. wide, stands 34 in. high, and weighs 500 lbs.
Bohnert says the unit's other uses include moving small hog sheds, pulling posts and hauling panels.
Sells for $338 fob.
