Nifty new round bale feed out cart
"We built it in response to dairy farmers who came to us looking for a better way to handle round bales in barns," says Harry Van Dyke, Camtech Products Inc., manufacturer of a new hand-pushed feed cart for round bales with a hydraulic lift cylinder and free-spinning bale unroller turntable.
Designed to handle bales up to 5 ft. dia. at 2,000 lbs., it's a simple, easy-to-handle rig that nearly anyone can operate. It loads the bale hydraulically with a bale spear mounted on a spinning turntable. Powered by a 110-volt hydraulic unit, it plugs into an extension cord when loading a bale. Once loaded, you unhook the cord and push the cart up and down aisles in the barn, peeling hay from the bale by turning the turntable, which rides on a double tapered roller bearing.
"It saves your back. Takes no effort to load a bale and, once loaded, the cart rolls freely. It's simple, with no complicated mechanisms requiring maintenance. Sells for half the price of other bale feed-out carts on the market at $2,800 (Canadian)," says Van Dyke.
