Balesweep

In 2007, George Krizenawski, owner of Rocky Mountain Bale Sweep, recognized the need to develop a new piece of equipment to handle small square hay bales. “We looked around and all that all that was available for skid steer or front end loader mounted equipment were products that would push or drag bales across the ground.  So we focused in on an old concept of accumulating hay by carrying it up of off the ground, and developed a product that would appeal functionally and price wise to commercial folks and hobby farmers alike.” “Rocky Mountain Bale Sweep is different from any other product in the market. We understand the challenges of harvesting hay and the importance of maintaining nutritional quality that customers demand.  We will not compromise forage quality or bale integrity by dragging hay during the accumulation phase'" Rocky Mountain Bale Sweep is a sturdy, well designed unit, made in the USA by a top notch fabrication shop and protected by a powder coat finish.  The spring loaded front end allows the forks to follow the ground contour.  Attachment will pick up and load or accumulate for use with a grapple. Bale Sweep has been re-designed for 2013 making it lighter, stronger and more compact.  It is available in the following configurations: 6 pack, 8 pack, 10 pack, 6 pack for 3-string bales, and Grapple. Dragging hay on the ground WILL: Ingest bales with dirt and rocks Wear thru bale strings If light windrows, 1st bale may be drug 1 or 2 hundred yards on the ground If field is uneven with dips or old ditches, bales will roll under accumulator Damage plants, break alfalfa off at ground level, knock back next cutting Spread weed seed from one area over entire hayfield Put dew and moisture into bales Horse folks will not buy hay that is brown on one side
