Here is a small one in action. At about the 15 minute mark he dumps a bale.

That's pretty neat. So after you dump the stack of hay how do you move it?

The stacker loader/unloader works pretty slick with round hay also.

Used to have one many yrs ago - was also great for feeding after grass, and picking up leaves in the yard.

The Hesston groundhog roller was next in this area. Rolled the roll on the ground.

The videos show how much I have forgotten about how they worked.

A large farm in the area still uses them. Last I knew they had three and used them only in corn stalks.
