WATCH: Collect a bale and move a ring feeder simultaneously


The Easy Arm - designed and manufactured by Blue Bull Machinery - allows the operator to collect a bale and simultaneously lift and move a ring feeder in the field – while feeding out.

The attachment can either be used on a front loader or attached to the rear end of a tractor, according to its creators.

The ring handler attachment can be used to:

  • take the bale to the ring feeder;

  • then lift the feeder;

  • place the bale on the ground;

  • and finally, place the feeder over the bale.

Advantages:

  • A curved bar piece on the back of the implement provides stability for the ring feeder when it’s lifted off the ground.

  • By removing just two pins, the ring-feeder arm can be removed when it’s not in use and the bale handler can be used to transport bales as usual.

  • The Easy Arm R.L. version has road lights and reflective plates for road work.

  • It also allows the ring feeder to be moved to a ‘fresh’ site and lets you unwrap the bale while it is safely on the ground.

Cost

The cost of the Easy Arm on its own (without the bale handler) is €1,000 excluding VAT; it comes equipped with brackets and can be attached to any other make of bale handler.

The asking price of the bale handler and Easy Arm, combined, is €1,400 excluding VAT.
