I have 4 acres I want to hay and was originally thinking of getting one of the old square balers for my 30hp tractor.
I figure with such a small place I could probably just throw it up on a wagon or pickup truck with forks like I did when I was a kid at my uncle's place.
Then I was reading up on something called a buck rake. It has tines like a fork lift that could be run into a windrow where it accumulates enough on the tines. Then when there's enough of a load it can be taken to the barn.
Never saw one, or maybe I did and didn't know what it was.
As anyone had experience with these and what are they like to work with? Would it set me back some for an old one?.Do they make 'em for a rear mount 3 point hitch? That'd be perfect for me.
Thanks for the info,
