Round bale grabber
"The grapple arm holds the bale close to the tractor so smaller tractors can move large bales. Its patented design also lets you pick up the bale from any side, and even diagonally," says Michael Duenow, Fulton, Mo. inventor of a new-style bale mover that fits any 3-pt. hitch.
To load a bale you first raise the 3-pt. to the highest position, then back the tractor until the grapple arm is over the bale. Next, drop the 3-pt. to its lowest position while backing into the bale. With the bale now on the mover you raise the 3-pt. and drive away.
To unload, you drop the 3-pt. to the lowest position, pull forward until a bar holding the grapple arm locks in place diagonally, then back up until the rear tines clear the bale. Next, raise the 3-pt. and drive away.
Bale mover sells for $200.
