The BIG BALE FLAKER™ is the first bale feeder of its kind. It is an all-electric, completely
remote control method of feeding big square bales of hay from the safety and comfort of cab of your pickup or tractor. It
fits on any flat-bed truck or trailer and will feed any size large square bale.
The BIG BALE FLAKER™ is a
complete feeding system which utilizes the 12 volt system in your truck or tractor as the only power source it requires. It
consists of the base unit, commonly referred to as the Bale Flaker. This is the unit that feeds the bale. It uses a 5000lb
electric winch to propel the bale over the edge of the bed allowing the bale to “flake off”. It has as standard
equipment a safety arm which locks into place enabling you to feed a portion of the bale and take the remainder to another
location. It also has a “Flake Stabilizer” which holds loose hay such as Bermuda, Sudan, or wheat in place not
allowing it to have a domino effect. Also the BIG BALE FLAKER™ can be positioned where it won’t interfere with
a goose neck trailer or cube feeder.
Depending on the type and condition of the bale, the BIG BALE FLAKER™
will flake off hay one to four flakes at a time. In cases of extremely tight hay, such as alfalfa, the “Flaker Assist”
will break up the larger chunks of hay. In most cases even the tightest bale will come off in 1 to 2 flakers. It is an optional
unit that can be added at anytime and is not required to feed any of the looser types of hay.
For those producers
who need to take more than one bale at a time, the reloading unit allows you to carry any where from 2 to 6 bales at a time.
It is of the same design, except for a second winch, which propels a bale onto the “Bale Flaker”. The
popular 2 bale and 3 bale units will fit on most pickup beds or trailers.
The BIG BALE FLAKER™ is a safe,
economical, bale feeding system that saves time and labor. It turns a 2 man operation into a 1 man job. Anyone who can drive
a pickup can feed hay with this system. By flaking the hay it allows you to spread hay over large areas which minimize loss.
