Self-Loading Bale Wagon
"It's the popular way to handle conventional hay and straw bales here in Denmark," says Egebjerg Maskinfabrik, manufacturer of a new self-loading bale wagon system.
As bales form, they automatically move up the loading ramp and into the trailer. Each bale pushes against the one in front of it to completely load a trailer without anyone having to climb inside.
Individual wagons, depending on size, hold 50 to 210 bales. When the trailer is full, the tractor operator pulls a rope to trip the rear swinging endgate, which is hinged at the top. As the bales tumble out, the gate crawls over the pile, then swings back with enough force to self-lock and ready the trailer for the next load. Individual trailers are generally hauled to headquarters for dumping and stacking.
