Bale Spear, Bale Spike Information
Round bale handling and transport Round bales can weigh a ton or more, and are well-suited for modern large scale farming operations such as a dairy with 200 or more cows. However, due to the ability for a round bale to roll away on a slope, they require special transport and moving equipment.
The most important tool for round bale handling is the bale spear or bale spike, which is usually mounted on the back of a tractor or the front of a skid-steer. It is inserted into the approximate center of the round bale, then lifted up and the bale is hauled away. Once at the destination, the round bale is set down, and the bale spear pulled out. Careful placement of the bale spear in the center is needed or the round bale can spin around and touch the ground while in transport, causing a loss of control.
