Approaching feeding time again: Based on last year, the procedure is as follows. Part time farmer, come home from work, feed two bales daily into a 4 bay double slatted house with a narrow central passage. Did so last winter with a Quicke Q45 loader and fork. The silage bales are on the slab and the slatted house is beside slab , so short run and no real lifting. No diet feeders or any high lifting necessary, just get a couple of bales into them and distribute it around. This year for better or worse, I have some ore plant at my disposal. I have the McCormick MC115 with Quicke Q45 and fork as per last year. I also have a 5' 3" McHale shear grab in good condition, have never tried it on bales. This year, bought for other purposes, I will have a New Holland L216 skid steer comes with no implements. The New Holland has a rated working load of 725 kg, with tipping load of 1450 kg. Bear in mind, heavy grab on skid steer = not much room left for silage load. I know, I'm not too badly sorted, but what way would you go ? Put McHale shear grab on tractor, horse two bales in passage, buy 4' tine grab for skid steer and dole it out to them. Put shear grab on tractor, horse two bales in passage, buy 5' tine grab for skid steer and dole it out to them. Put two bales into slatted house with tractor and fork, put McHale shear grab on skid steer and dole it out to them. Put two bales into slatted house with tractor and fork and buy 4' shear grab to dole it out to them. There are many more permutations, don't mind flogging shear grab or fork or buying an implement. but tractor and loader stays skid steer stays. How would you arrange the furniture ?
