Designed to be hitched to the back of any round baler, it operates automatically. As each bale comes out the back of the baler, it is shifted hydraulically - first to the right, then to the left, and the third bale is held at center. Each bale shift is identified by a light and sound signal in the tractor cab so the operator knows when to shut the rear baler door.
The new bale handler consists of a curved cradle running crosswise behind the baler. It has a set of support wheels under it that retract when the cradle is unloaded to the rear. A pair of 2-way cylinders shove bales to either side of the trailer, activated by levers that the bales hit as they come out of the baler.
Sells for about $3,800.
