Bale Spear Bolted To Excavator Bucket
Ernest Merkley found a way to handle big round bales with his 4-ton excavator by attaching a bale spear to the back of the bucket.
He first welded an 8 by 8-in., 1/4-in. thick steel plate to the side of the bucket to reinforce it and then attached the bale spear with two bolts.
The attachment lets Merkley easily pick up round bales off his bale wagon and pile them five bales high under cover. When hes finished moving bales, he can easily unbolt the spear from the bucket, so it wont interfere with normal digging.
