The Cradle Hay Feeder end panels have rounded sides. This allows the feeder placement over the bale, where it can be tied on and then pulled back into loaded position – no front-end-loader required. This offers more flexibility in circumstances where properties are separated by distance. Feeders can be loaded by simply rolling round bales off the side of pick-ups or trailers
Front-End Loader Method
A front-end loader can simply top-load the Cradle Hay Feeder.
Moving the Cradle Hay Feeder
The Cradle Hay Feeder comes with two 75mm wide skids as standard. These allow towing of the feeder in wet and dry conditions. The skids have a bar between them featuring two loops which allow a rope or chain to be attached to them for towing.
Front-end loaders can pick up and move the Cradle Hay Feeder loaded providing the tines of the FEL have pierced the hay and the feeder is strapped to the bale.
