Automatic Bale Loader
If you have manpower or facilities to handle the bales, it'll self-unload a full load of 125 bales in about eight minutes.
"A custom operator can pay for this rig the first year," Kaye Keen, Australian rep for Kemper, told FARM SHOW. "We custom hauled over 100,000 bales last year, at 25 cents per bale. Depending on distance, one man can move more than 3,000 bales from field to storage with the pto-driven loader."
It's 8 ft. wide, 11 ft. high and 27 ft. long. Bales are securely held on the loader for road travel without having to be tied down. The 125 bale model requires a 30 hp or larger tractor and sells for about $20,000. Smaller 75 and 95 bale models also available.
