Square Bale Grab
Perfect for loading into Feed Mixers
McCormack’s Square Bale Grab greatly reduces time and increases the safety in loading hay bales into mixer bins. The side squeezing action of the grab allows square bales to be taken directly from the stack, strings cut off at ground level and then dumped directly into the mixer bin. Simply lift the cut bale over the mixer and open the grab and the loose bale will fall in, no need to lean over the bin to remove strings. Two replaceable spears each side, operated by independent hydraulic cylinders can be retracted far enough to spear the bale to stack them hard side by side. This attachment can be made to suit all makes of skid steer, front end loader or Telehandler.

Features:
  • The safest way to load bales into feed mixer bins
  • Replaceable nylon slide
  • Replaceable spears
  • Available with paddle grab arms also
  • Requires third function to operate grab
Bale Unwinder
A Bale Unwinder is the tool to use to unravel a Round Bale for feeding, mulching or portioning. The main spear goes through the centre of the bale and the alignment spears allow the bale to be unwound. This allows half a bale to be easily unloaded into a mixer bin or spread out to be fed in paddocks. A hydraulic motor allows for precise control of the bales rotation. This attachment can be made to suit all makes of skid steer, front end loader or Telehandler.

Features:
  • Precise way to load bales into feed mixer bins
  • Replaceable bronze bushes
  • Hydraulic control of bale rotation
  • Requires third function to operate grab
