Bale Trailer Cage Holds Big Loads In Place
This “made it myself” big square bale trailer from England features a clamshell cage that holds big loads of bales in place. We spotted it in the British farm magazine, Practical Farm Ideas (www.farmideas.co.uk).
  The 32-ft. tri-axle trailer holds up to 32 big square bales and is equipped with a hydraulic-operated clamshell, which opens for loading and then closes down on one side of the trailer for transport.
  Inventor John Goodfellow loads bales 4-high onto the trailer with a JCB telehandler. The steel frame on one side of the trailer forms a stop for the bales.
  The clamshell moves smoothly up and down, and the trailer’s tri-axle air bag suspension smoothes out any load bounce, says the inventor.
