Spread-a-Bale offers attachment for loading mixer wagons with straw

Spread-a-Bale has launched a simple attachment system to allow owners to transfer chopped straw straight into a mixer wagon to reduce mixing times and running costs.

The Feed-a-Bale system can also distribute baled hay, haylage and lucerne along feed fences and can slot onto any machine dating back to 2001, including both the M and SBL range.
