    On a shortish draw wud it bring 80 bales an hour???? If u charged a 100 an hour for the trailer and 60 for the lad in the yard stacking, that wud work out at 2 euro a bale which wouldn’t be too outrageous, even 2.50 a bale wouldn’t be too bad either.

    I still say at that money for all that's included a forestry forwarder with a flat deck on would be worth considering.
    One man could stack and all then.

    If only they were faster on the road

    Seeing it in action
    he is going about picking up them bales very gingerly, considering he would have put in plenty of practice for a promotional video.
    Also youd need a big yard for dropping off the bales between the first batch of eight bales, then the second batch of eight and enough room to pull the rig clear of the lot !

    Not mad about the way it throws the bales off the table back on to the lifting frame to drop off the bales .

    Yeah it would definitely take a bit of room to drop the full load, but I guess any trailer that can carry that volume would need a bit of room to be able to be emptied too

    There’s a lot of thought gone into it in fairness!

    I thought that too but I’d say a bit of practice you could have them going back to the arms fairly gentle, I’d say you’d want to or the stress of dropping 4 bales on those arms roughly wouldn’t be long showing

    And just to tease it out further

    undoubtedly this (and keltec/Wilson) is way faster than a bale trailer for any draw under a couple miles. However when you factor in the man on the loader in the yard it needs to be Re assessed And compare like with like

    so in this system you have 2 men and tractors, 1 hauling 1 stacking. With trailers (or double rear handlers for short draw) you have 2 men hauling and both stacking. Is there much if any difference? In fact on slightly longer draws would 2 trailers be better?

    of course tying down every load when using trailers is unbelievably time consuming if you are to be 100% compliant

    Nothing stoping you placing the second 8 facing another way or besides the first. But yes. Still a lot of room.

    Could handle squares and straw squares and all sorts with it.

    And I bet it would find uses.
    Plus the trailer is still fit for a load of feed or fert.

    Watched the video there, whatever about the practicalities in yards and fields and how cost efficient it would be to buy one, the thought and engineering that went into making it is very impressive.

    looks the sort of thing for the rich kids:scratchhead:
    is it really any quicker then a decent 28ft trailer and tractor and loader? where you'd carry 17 on trailer and maybe 1 on the loader if your not going down the road

    passing fad in my view

    Malone are a super company to deal with, I got spare parts of them, and they bent over backwards to sort me. They had no reason as I never bought anything off them. But would give them the height of praise

    It says in the add it's RSA approved, but even if it or the Malone went over on it's side in an accident the bale will still come of the trailer and could land on top of a car or pedestrian

    If a load of stone tipped over it wouldn't be healthy either. No strap would hold an 800kg bale falling either. There's a lot to be said for an extra trailer drawing too. Was bringing silage bales home the other day, had 28 between the two, could have brought 31 if i had a trunk.

    I may be a bit biased but I watched a keltec in a kerry field.
    By a kerry field I mean lots of humps a slight hill and about 20 corners.
    He was carrying 10 our trailers carry 12 on the floor and I reckon the loading shovel with the double grab would be every bit as fast putting 12 on the trailer and unloading it.
    Baring in mind that set up would be doing 14 a round so compare the times with the keltec doing 10 id say the end result would be the same time wise
