Self Loading Balefeeder Header Image

The BF8000 SL is designed to feed out round bales up to 6’ in diameter and weighing up to 2,500 lbs. The BF8000SL is equipped with a hydraulic loading arm and two prong bale spear, to lift and place the bale on the table. The loading arm can also be used to carry a second bale to the field. Once placed on the table, an apron chain rotates the bale as the drum’s fingers unravel the hay. As the core of the bale is approached, the table can be tilted increasing contact between the bale and the drum ensuring the entire bale is fed out.

Self Loading Feature Image

Self Loading

The BF8000SL has a hydraulic self loading design removing any need for additional equipment to load bales onto the BaleFeeder table.

Bale Spear Position Indicator Feature Image

Loading Arm Position Indicator

The mechanical loading arm position indicator lets you know when the bale spears are in the ideal position for loading different sizes of bales, or when the loading arm is in position for transporting.

Retractable Fingers Feature Image

Retractable Fingers

The BaleFeeder’s drum uses retractable fingers to grab and fluff the bale on the table side, while retracting back into the drum on the unloading side preventing material from being pulled back under the drum back onto the table.
