Center Divider Makes Bale Hauling Easier
A Missouri custom hay producer came up with a nifty way to haul round bales with an over-the-mad semi trailer. He equipped it with a center divider so he can push bales up against the divider from either side when loading.
An 8-ft. high steel rail runs down the middle of the 53-ft. long, 8-ft. wide trailer. The trailer accommodates 34 5 1/2 by 6-ft. bales or 38 to 42 5-ft. bales. The floor slopes in toward the center so bales stay on without tie-downs. Outrigger "cradles" along the sides slide out and lock in place when hauling 6-ft. bales.
"The divider is sturdy enough to take the impact of bales hitting it hard. With front-end loaders working on both sides of the trailer we can load it in only 10 to 15 minutes," says Robert Garton, Moundville, Mo.
