Hay Season 2020 starts the first week of September. Small square bales used in agribusinesses such as pumpkin patches and U-Pick farms are lightweight and take little effort to transport. But the big bales for cattle feed and other purposes can be heavy and difficult to move without damaging them. What’s a more efficient option to handle them?
The answer: A bale squeezer.
Don’t have one? Messer Repair & Fabricating has you covered. But let’s discuss why a bale squeezer can make hay season easier.
BENEFITS OF A HAY BALE SQUEEZER DURING HAY SEASON 2020
Small Farm Friendly
Messer Repair & Fabricating’s bale squeezer & bale hugger are ideal for smaller farms and those on a tight budget. It’s the perfect middle ground for people that need to move bales, but don’t need the bigger industrial equipment that large farms use. All you have to do is hook up the bale squeezer on a skid steer or tractor and get right to work.
Good for Both Round and Square Bales
Our bale grabber is designed with a unique paddle shape that allows users to grab round bales up to 6’ in diameter and square bales up to 7’ long with ease. Four heavy duty springs on each side prevent sway and keep the paddles centered.
The compact formed piping frame keeps the weight closer to the machine for increased lift capacity. The unique design helps prevent tearing the plastic or bale wrapping while moving hay.
Less Bale Wrap Damage = Healthier Hay Harvest
Messer Repair & Fabricating’s bale squeezer is designed to keep bale wrapping damage to a minimum. Any farmer who’s baled hay before, knows that damage to bale plastic is most likely to happen during the moving and storing process.
When the plastic gets punctured, it exposes the hay to several problems.
- Bacteria and mold growth – Excess moisture provides the perfect environment for bacteria and mold growth.
- Pest infestation – Mice and insects love to nest in and feast on hay.
- Nutrient leaching – Excess sun exposure breaks down valuable nutrients in hay for livestock.
WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER
After all the hard work it takes to harvest and bale hay, no one wants to lose it at the end of the process. The right equipment for the job saves valuable time and money, ensuring a successful harvest year after year.
