Bale Handler Picks Up Three Bales At Once
Joel Schreurs got the idea for his 3-bale bale handler while watching a neighbor use a double spear. As he speared a second bale, Schreurs noticed that the first bale rubbed on the ground, which tore its netting off. Schreurs’ patented bale mover has wings on both sides so the bales can be lifted off the ground before spearing the middle bale. Or, all three bales can be speared and lifted at the same time.
  The spear setup works on Cat. II or III 3-pt. hitches on 120 hp or higher tractors.
  “Of course, if the tractor is big enough you can take two more bales on the front also,” Schreurs says.
  Two long spears go through each bale for stability, and the 1,100-lb. attachment is made of 5 by 7-in., 3/8-in. tubing and is powder-coated and painted to match any model tractor. The wings fold up when traveling on the road or through gates.
  Schreurs sells the spear attachment for $4,100.
