“Unwinder” Turns Big Bales Into Small
You can convert big round bales into small square bales with the Altec“unwinder” from The St. George Company.
  The Altec DR-160 bale unwinder can handle bales up to 60” wide and 72” in diameter that weigh up to 2200 lbs. The bale unwinder is hydraulically operated from the same tractor used to PTO-drive the baler. A manual control is used to set the speed at which the bale unwinds.
  “Round balers do a much faster job in the field and require less labor. This machine lets you make small bales when you have more time,” says Peter Quail. “It can be used with hay, straw, or silage bales. It doesn’t break up the hay but instead gently unwinds it. And when you’re done using the unwinder to make small square bales, you use it to deliver feed into bunks or onto pasture ground.”
  It can also be equipped with axial straw spinners on back, allowing you to use the machine to spread straw out up to 22 ft.
  Also available is the larger model DT 120, which can turn large square bales - up to 4 by 4 by 8 ft. - into small square bales. The DT 120 can also handle 4-ft. wide round bales.
