First saw this on a online auction done by a local company. They put different things on there from time to time. Saw this thing on there a few days before the auction on it ended




Now i had no real idea what it was. Talked to a few people about it though and found out it is a bale loader that goes on the side of a flat bed truck. Found this pretty interesting. Also figured if i get to do hay like i plan to next year then i can give it a try. Pretty handy from what im told.



I will note that this kind of spurred the 55 project. Was a spontaneous purchase but if nothing else it is a neat piece to look at. Plan to paint it eventually. Be something interesting to have at the show

Was told its bush hog brand. Never knew they made any other sort of equipment.

Ray, Bush Hog made a full line of disks, chisel plows, and rotary mowers and plus front end loaders as well. Bale loaders were popular in the 1960's and 70's when guys wanted to make a lot of hay without a thrower, many of them customer operators or working on fields to hilly for a wagon.
