Bale Unroller For Pickups
A do-it-yourself bale unroller made out of old pipe makes handling big round bales easy for Arkansas farmer Larry Zeng who mounts the rig on the back of a Ford pickup.
The bale mover has lift arms made out of 11/2-in. dia. steel pipe. They're bent upward at the end so they'll stay off the ground when in the down position. A chain, heavy spring and small load binder hold the arms in place. Old disc blades spin on 1-in. pointed pins welded on 2-in. angle ironthat's tack-welded to the bale lift arms.
The unroller arms mount on a rectangular frame made from 2-in. pipe. A single length of heavy 2 1/2 in. pipe acts as a lifting mast. Pulling back on the mast with a winch anchored to the pickup bed raises the bale off the ground. The unroller can be mounted on any truck or tractor 3-pt.
