Low-Cost Bale Buggy'We move round bales easily with a low-cost bale buggy we built from an old car rear end and scrap metal," says Eugene Menke, Berger, Mo.
Menke built a pivoting frame, with a set of forks at the back, and mounted it on the car rear end. He backs the forks up to the bale and then pulls the bale onto the buggy with a pair of hand-cranked winches. One winch holds the bale against the lifting frame and the other lifts the bale off the ground by pulling the lift frame down into a locked position. He feeds the cable from the front winch through a set of pulleys to boost lifting capacity.
