Form Fit Tarp For Baled Hay
Built-in straps make it easy to secure the tarp once it's rolled into position. The tarp, made of a plastic material, is 12 ft. wide with a treated weather-proof strip 9¢ ft. wide running down the middle. The untreated portion hangs down along the sides of 9¢-ft. wide bale stacks. Individual tarps are available in whatever length the customer wants. "The longest we've sold was 212 ft., and the shortest 54 ft.," says Plowman. "Because of the roll-up feature, this new tarp is fast and easy to put on, and as convenient to roll up and store for reuse. Consequently, it should last for several years."
Weight of the tarp, which is water and mildew resistant, is right at 1 lb. per running yard.
