The most impressive part is everything holding up to those forces. That tractor rocked like a rocking horse when loaded. Thanks for sharing.

It looks cool but I'm trying to think of why. Maybe if your hauling it straight to the barn with the tractor. You'd have to have a smaller tractor stacking bales together

You can drink way more beer if you haul them in two at a time.
Reminds me of what my brother once told me (years ago) when we were unloading sacks of feed. I was carrying 2 at a time.
"That says lots about you brother..it's a lazy man that won't make 2 trips......

I couldn’t afford the seat replacement
if someone gave the rig to me.

Hmmm - wouldn't work out here. Too much moisture. We have to keep space between sides of bales. Round edge cannot touch each other, or the whole bales will rot.
Awwww, dang it. Thought my custom hay guy might want to buy this!!! LOL

During the summer months too ??
?? Don't know what you mean?
But, yes, we hardly have 3 full days of sunshine during the summer. Super difficult to put up dry hay/straw. If we set two bales side-by-side, the water follows the "round" of the bale & has no where to go except it soaks into the bales. If we set them tight end-to-end, then the water sheds off the bales (following the round).
No matter how much rain you got, all of it would end up IN the bale if they are touching round to round side.

Yup. Almost impossible to put 1st cutting dry.
"Most" farms in NY are dairy, and they put up haylage in silos & bunks & tubes.
The only dry hay we usually try to have made is 2nd cutting.
My custom hay guy was maybe the first in the state to get a wrapper (in-line).
