Simple Load Leveler
To load and stack round bales easier, Wes Suddarth, Lebanon, Tenn., came up with a way to self-level his big bale spear so that the bales wouldn't slip off, eliminating the need for extra cylinders on the loader.
Suddarth hooked his tractor loader to the center of the frame of the bale spear. Then, he attached a solid piece of 2-in. sq. steel tubing to a pivot point at the bottom of the frame. The tubing, which is marked by a dashed white line in the photo, runs to a pivot point on the loader frame just below the loader pivot frame. Key to successful use of the idea, according to Suddarth, is that the distance between the pivot points on the bale spear - marked in the photo by white circles - and the pivots on the loader frame - marked by white triangles must be the same. When they are, the spear will always remain level to the ground.
