Winch-Dumped Round Bale Wagon"We built this round bale wagon for use on our own farm three years ago. It's worked so well, we decided to manufacture it for sale," says Dwayne Mumby, St. Brieux, Sask.
Mumby's new winch-dump wagon carries as many as 10 6-ft. bales at once and can be pulled with a ¥-ton truck. All 10 bales unload at once with the use of a hand winch that eliminates the need for hydraulic equipment or for a tractor at the stack yard. "Five or six turns of the hand crank lets the inside of the bale cradle raise enough so the weight of the bales is off-centered and they roll off by themselves. You lower the cradles again by reversing the winch. Two pins, located at the center of the wagon, lock the cradles down for transport and are released by raising the lever located below the winch," explains Mumby.
New bale wagon sells for about $5,000 (Canadian).
