When a natural disaster like a flood or a storm…
Messer Attachments offers round, combo, and round bale spears for your convenience. All of our spears are equipped with high quality made in Germany SHW spears. They are forged out of spring steel, heat treated with a tapered shaft, and one of the most flexible spears in the world. The benefit to a tapered shaft is that it flexes throughout the length of the spear. The spears are held into the frame by a tapered sleeve, machined out of solid steel, and welded on. The spear is retained into the sleeve with a nut on the back side where we drill a hole in it and weld all around it. The “usable length” is the length that sticks out from the sleeve, which is 24″.
Combo Bale Spear- These are most likely for people who handle round & square bales. For the Square we recommend removing the top tine, and for the round remove the outside two tine(s). Top corners of our combo spears are open to use the extensions (sold seperately).
Round Bale Spear- Common bale sizes are 4×5, 5×6, or 4×6. If you happen to use silage bales, we suggest purchasing the heavy duty (HD) spears. For the three tines that we offer, it is the top spear and bottom two stabilizers. The benefit to two tines is that you can carry two bales and more stable. Typically customers do not purchase the added extensions with these, because they do not have the open tubes on the corners where you could put the extensions.
Square Bale Spears- These are not off limits for round bale handling, but we do recommend if using for both square & round to go with the heavy duty (HD) option, they have the Con-2 tines and are rated for shaking bales apart. Our six foot, four wide heavy duty is good for carrying two round bales. Second bale extensions are commonly purchased with square bale spears, and with the HD (CON2) tines we put an extra plate in front of the sleeve for added support. Our HD45 model comes with a welded second bale spear extension, so it will always have the option to carry two bales.
Custom spear frames available to special order.
