Inexpensive Sled Makes Bale Hauling Easy
A 2-bale sled that slides on 2-by-4 runners is an inexpensive way to bring bales in from the field, according to Canadian farmer Harvey Drake, Belle Vallee, Ontario.
Drake hauls three bales home at a time, with two on the sled and one on a 3-pt. fork.
The sled consists of four 2-by-10 planks laid side by side, held together by three 2-by-4's running across the top of them. A 2 by-4 runner is attached to the underside of each side of the sled. The front of the sled is angled upward at a 45? angle. "The sled runs on the 2-by-4's most of the time, saving wear on the planks and making it easier to pull. The 2-by-4's need to be replaced periodically," Drake told FARM SHOW. He pulls the sled with a chain attached to the front of the sled.
