Self contained hydraulic bale hauler
"I built it for my own use but it worked out so well we'd like to find a manufacturer," says Jerry Colemer, Adams, Wis., who's had good luck with his self-contained hydraulic-operated 2-bale hauler.
Colemer says he designed it as a short-haul machine for people with hay fields 2 to 3 miles away. He also wanted a bale hauler he could tow behind his pickup to speed up the process and to eliminate the need for tractor hydraulics.
The open frame trailer has an arched overhead frame that holds the two sides of the bale hauler together. There are four hydraulic cylinders, two on each side, that lower the side rails down to the ground to pick up the bales. After the operator backs the rig over the bale, the cylinders activate levers that push lift rails out under the bale.
Hydraulics are provided by a 5-hp. gas motor mounted on the tongue.
