Bale feeder mover"I read in FARM SHOW last year about a round bale feeder mover. I thought it was a great idea but I've found a way to simplify it," says Bob Gillson, who's begun marketing his own feeder mover.
The "High Lifter" lets you pick up a bale feeder with the lip of a tractor bucket, or a bale spear, and move it without leaving the tractor seat. Frequent movings prevent hay and manure buildup around feeders and helps keep feeders from getting frozen in place.
Gillson's mover is made up of 9 steel components welded together into one solid unit. It weighs 15 lbs. and can be installed on the feed ring by one person in less than 5 min. using only a pair of pliers to bend the loops on the lower end of each steel rod around the top bar on the feeder.
Sells for $24.95, including shipping.
