Trailer Hauls 17 Big Round Bales
In addition to the 17 bale mover, the company also offers smaller "5 to 14 bale" models of the same trailer. Each model is available with the cab conveyor carrier attachment which adds 3 additional bales to the carrying capacity. The largest model, for example, handles 14 bales plus the 3 additional bales which can be carried on the cab conveyor, for a total of 17 bales.
All trailer models are self loading as quickly as one can drive from one bale to another. They self-unload in less than five minutes by moving slowly forward. A special hydraulic unit for unloading one bale at a time in hay rings for winter feeding is optional. "Not only will the unit transport large round bales over long distances, but it also enables cattlemen to unroll each and every bale on the trailer for range cattle feeding without leaving the cab of the tractor," Howard Johnson, the inventormanufacturer, points out.
Key features include the single bale self loading system, and the multi-bale lift and conveyor which enables the operator to unload all bales directly into a tub grinder. Each trailer has its own hydraulic power system for use with trucks or tractors.
All trailers are built with gooseneck-type hitches for towing by truck or tractor. Experimental 6 ft. by 5 ft. by 41/z ft. containers are being designed for field loading in the fruit and vegetable industry, and for other possible uses.
