That's pretty cool. A lot more sophisticated than the forklifts I used to drive.
I wonder who came up with that idea?

I'd never seen that before. It was magic!!!!

We only cut and bale around 150 big rounds a year, depending on the weather and how many cuttings we get. Something like that would make moving and stacking it FUN rather than the 2 bales at a time chore that we have at present.

Yeah, I think the loader/stacker tlr is faster for square bales.
