Does anyone know where i can find a bale buncher my wife seems to think it would make her life easyer if I would have the bales in a group instead of in a line behind the baler.Cant figure her out she still has to pick them up if there in a bunch or in a row.

When we (my father, my brother William, and I) bale hay, it usually works like this:

One of us drives the David Brown Case 885 and pushes the clutch in a hurry if someone yells 'ĦĦĦĦSTOP!!!!'

One of us rides on or walks behind the International McCormick 46 and stacks the bales on the baler, and if there is time between bales, checks for missed knots, and if there is a missed knot yells 'ĦĦĦĦSTOP!!!!,' raises his hand, and then ties it.

One of us drives the Dodge Ram and puts the hay in it.

The IH 46 holds 5 bales on top of the sheet metal over the auger, a bale or two on the diagonal thing on the back near the bale chamber, a bale on the bale chamber, and a bale on the back hitch. Can you stack bales on your baler?

you might point out the leaving them in a row allows a little walking time for cooling off on a hot day.

Hi, Jeff, I used to pull a "stooker" behind the square baler, platform on skids with a tipable platform, that held ten bales stacked on edge, between forks. This takes someone riding on the thing to place the bales, used to be me! but works great. Also used a Satoh tractor with a front end loader, to move the bales to the feed yard. Had a fork made for that, that picked the bales up, in the stook, also had forks on the three point hitch for another ten bale stook......not bad, twenty bales to the feed yard, and never touched one. Not haveing a hay shed, I stored the bales as they came in from the field, in the stook, till feeding in the winter, then I just picked up the stook, usualy with the three point hitch, for traction reasons, and took the whole thing out to feed the cows. Being stored on the edge makes the bales shed water, and spoiledge is kept to a minimum. Hope this is of some value to you, have a gooder, R.E.L.
