Loader-Transporter Handles 5 Big Bales
New from Balling Mfg., Colton, S. Dak., is a special-purpose wagon that picks up and transports large round bales. It's completely hydraulic, uses no chains and can haul five bales at a time. Bales are picked up by an extending arm on one side, placed on the cupped wagon bed, and then pushed by a ram toward the rear, making room for the next bale.
The 30-ft. long wagon tips hydraulically to the other side for unloading, and the watershed top of the bale, as it lay in the field originally, remains on top when a load is placed on the ground after transporting.
According to Bernard Balling, manufacturer, the wagon offers high-speed bale loading and hauling. "With experience, bales can be loaded on the go. A trip to a field a half mile away can be made, five bales loaded, and the wagon returned to the farmstead in about 15 minutes," he notes. "No hooking up or unhooking is required. All control is from the tractor seat."
Retail price of the wagon is $4,800.
