Small bale Stacker
Hi all

Ive been playing the Amber map and decided to use some really small equipment from the classics pack and was wondering if anyone has seen a stacker mod for the small bales?

My neighbour used to have a machine that was towered along behind the baler and put the bales into squares for easier pickup later on and have been keen to find one similar to this
(I think it was something like 5x5 bales that a tractor could pick up with a special grab and place upon another layer to make a stack)

Realised its called an Accumulator

here is a picture of one

Then a FL attachment is used to grab them all and stack

thats a nice piece of kit tbh .... i think i saw a front loader contraption that was used to collect flat stacked ( boxed ) bales so maybe there is something like that around somewhere

We have a front loader mounted accumulator that my dad made himself and you drive around and it make 2x4 squares that we pick up with a hay grapple and load onto a trailer. Much more efficient than hand loading

Ive never had the oportunity to use one myself, My father (who is the sole worker on our farm for 60% of the year) just sells the straw to people in the area - once it comes out the combine its up to them to bale it and shift it before we need to plough the field, this can be £20 a bale!

When I was young back in the early 80's while working on the ranch. We had a machine that was towed.

It had a arm that you lowered to the ground on the left side. It had a chute that collected the bales as you drove down the row. That bale would be picked up and pushed along a small tray. When the 5th or 6th bale hit the end it would trigger a lever that would rotate the tray placing the bales on a table. when that table was full it would trigger another lever that would rotate the bales onto another upright table or fork.

Once you had collected a full trailer full of stacked bales you could back into the barn rotate the whole platform so the bales where on the ground and 2 pads would push the stack away from the table .

Hope I explained that in way someone else may have seen them. It was a fairly expensive tool but man o man I was glad to see it since after stacking the bottom half with the machine we had to stack by hand the upper half to the rafters :) better than the whole thing as this was a huge open barn..I almost hated summer time ...because it meant cutting, wind rowing, baling and stacking till fall....

hey I found a video of one that is nearly the same except it is self powered but the rear part looks the same as our towed one. We used a ford 5000 with pto etc hooked up and all the controls for forcing the table were right behind and the lever to run the bale catcher was attached to the arm rest if I recall..

what im thinking of is similar to the first action where it puts them into position but then the back opens up leaving them on the ground - its only 1 bale high but several square

We actually have a new holland bale wagon like TheBlindOldman was talking about thats far from in working order
