“Carry & Cut” Big Bale Mover
“The Round Bale Knife was developed by a local farmer for his own use, and now he makes them for us,” says Joe Wingert, Ackerman’s Equipment and Rental. “The knife works equally well on 4 by 4 and 4 by 5-ft. big round bales. It will cut any bale, dry or wet.”
Wingert notes that cutting the bales in half saves wear and tear on the mixer and saves time too. Cut bales take less time to mix.
The carry and cut attachment comes with either a skid loader or 3-pt. hitch mount. The knife is 3 in. thick at the spine with a 10-in. wide blade. A 72-in. long, 1 1/2-in. dia. ram drives the blade through a 90-degree arc for a full cut through the bale.
Wingert suggests using a 75 hp. or larger tractor on the attachment. It is priced at $2,989.
