Labor-Saving Bale Wagon Has Built-In Conveyor
Designed and manufactured by Meyer's Mfg., Dorchester, Wis., the wagon features a bale-conveyor type chain. Powered by tractor pto, the chain runs the entire length of the wagon.
It's covered by six, 32-in. long shields. As you unload the first few bales from the front of the wagon, you lift the first shield. As you work your way back, you lift each successive shield until you reach the back of the wagon. The hinged shields hook onto the side wagon rails to stay in place while unloading. You flip them back down over the chain before reloading the wagon.
A fiberglass chute attaches to the front of the box in seconds and guides bales into the elevator. The wagon has square tubing sides and a 2-in. plank floor.
It's 9-ft. wide and available in 18 and 20-ft. lengths. A 9 by 20-ft. wagon sells for $1,850 (running gear not included). The pto shaft ($130) and fiberglass chute ($135) are sold separately.
