Telephone Pole Bale Hauler
You'll like the uncomplicated design of this new telephone pole bale hauler that'll handle up to six 1,500-lb. round bales and dump them hydraulically at the stackyard.
Thomas Tallackson, Grafton, N. Dak., mounted two 35-ft. telephone poles on an old Deere wagon chassis by chaining the poles to a pair of hinging frames that bolt to a pair of I-beams stretched across the wagon chassis. Each hinged frame is fitted with a hydraulic cylinder.
When in the "cradle" position for hauling bales, the cylinders are both extended. To dump, both cylinders are retracted, which lifts one pole up in the air, rolling all bales off to one side at once.
