3 pt mover lifts bales up to 6 feet
"I think it's the best bale mover on the market. It's simple and strong and can lift bales up to 6 ft. high to load onto trucks or into feeders," says Bob DeRuyter, Cedar Grove, Wis., about his new bale mover.
"Most farmers prefer moving bales with a 3-pt. rather than with a front-end loader because it's easier to get around wet feed-lots with the bale on back rather than up front over the smaller front wheels. The problem is most 3-pt. bale movers can't lift bales up high enough," says DeRuyter.
Made of 4-in. sq. tubing and 2 by 4-in. rectangular tubing, the bale mover has two hydraulic cylinders. One to pinch the bale grabbing arms together, and one to lift the bale upward once it's been grabbed. The 3-pt. is also used to lift the bale up.
Fits any tractor with a category 2 or 3 hitch and dual hydraulics.
Sells for $1,250.
