Grabs round & square bales

A BALE grab which can handle up to two round bales or as many as three big square bales, is now available from Broadwater Machinery.

The M12G attachment has eight curved tines – four each side – which grip the bale on the extension of a double-acting hydraulic ram.

The maker says that, when fitted to a telescopic handler, the grab can be used to place round bales on end or in pairs across a trailer when the loader carriage is tilted forwards.

When handling square bales the grab is used in a horizontal position to enable it to load and stack bales efficiently.

M12G price starts at £900. &#42

Both round and square bales can be handled by Broadwater Machinerys M12G bale grab.
