Front Bale Unroller
"After several years of unrolling 4-ft. dia. round bales by hand or with the front wheel of the tractor (the tractor radiator always got in the way), I knew there had to be a better way because my feet and back were giving out on me," says Aaron Warkentin, Ryley, Alb.
"This unroller solved the problem. It's made from a length of 12-in. dia. heavy-duty pipe with a metal shaft welded through the middle with old bearings fitted into channel iron and bolted to the tractor
"I unload the bale, cut the twine, and then drive against the bale with the unroller. It works fine except that next time I'll build it lower to the ground since the bottom 1 ft. of bale doesn't get unrolled. I recently built one for a neighbor, which we mounted on a frame extended ahead of and under the front axle," says Warkentin.
