Bull-Wheel Hay Baler
Developed by Amish mechanics Martin Schmucker and Melvin Lengacher of New Haven, Ind., the bull wheel system can be used on balers, cornpickers, and other powered equipment. It consists of an over-size metal wheel that replaces a wheel on one side of the baler. It runs against a friction wheel fitted with a chain sprocket that chain-drives the baler flywheel. It's geared to run the baler at similar speeds as when pto-powered.
The baler can be converted back to its original configuration in minutes, according to Schmucker.
