On End Stacker For Big Round Bales
Stacking big round bales vertically minimizes spoilage," says Roger Kooima, of Triple "K" Industries, Fairview, S. Dak., manufacturer of the Verti-Stak, a new round bale carrier-stacker that picks up and hauls three big bales and stacks them on end.
The unit, which will also unload bales horizontally in a single row end to end, pulls behind your truck at road speed, or behind a tractor. It's equipped with a side arm that lowers hydraulically to pick each bale off the ground and set it onto the carrier frame. A hydraulic cylinder pushes the first two bales to the back end of the carrier. Once loaded with three bales, you drive it to headquarters and simply raise the bed to stack the bales vertically on end.
The Veri-Stak can also be used to retrieve vertically-stacked bales, or you can use a tractor loader. For outside storage, Kooima recommends adding a plastic tarp over the top bale to help reduce spoilage.
The 3-bale model sells for right at $8,600 and is available with a gooseneck or pull type hitch.
