Bale Accumulators - MFG Summer 2018

Small hay bales have steadily grown in demand due to ease of portability and hay quality.

Large agriculture equipment companies have responded with higher output balers, which only leave the bale on the ground for manual pickup, stacking and movement. Bale Accumulators answers the producers' problem by creating a one-man baling system.

AC1000Product Spotlight

The AC1000 mechanical design requires no external hydraulics, PTO, or electrical connections. Each bale triggers a series of switches, guiding the next bale into proper location and then releasing the entire pack when full. Each pack of 10 bales includes two bales positioned in the opposite direction. This cross-over pattern strengthens the stack as it builds by tying the bales together. Connect directly behind your baler for instant gathering as you bale or use your truck with the optional hitch adaptor. Floatation tires, which come standard, are wider and provide lower ground pressure, minimizing compaction in soft or wet soil conditions.

SMALL BALE ACCUMULATORProduct Spotlight

The Parrish small bale accumulator is designed to eliminate labor. This unit allows one man to clear and accumulate an entire field of hay in just a fraction of time. Meaning one person can rake, bale, accumulate, load, and store a 5 - 7 acre tract in one days time. It hooks behind any square baler in seconds without utilizing pumps or tractor hydraulics. The 10-bale configuration is set up to turn two bales sideways so when loading a trailer, the bales will stack easier and be more stable. This configuration fits a standard eight foot trailer.

MODEL 1000Product Spotlight

This unit attaches directly to the baler at two points – the baler's wagon hitch and stabilizer hitch – to keep the accumulator aligned with the bale chamber at all times. As the bales are placed on the accumulator, a pivoting arm lifts two bales and spins them a quarter turn to help maintain shape, prevent hay spoilage, and mold is reduced. When fully loaded, the bed automatically dumps with no need to stop or slow down. The high dump angle assures that all the bales will slide off evenly.

MODEL 950Product Spotlight

Smooth, precision functions keep up with any baler's production and our feed chain eliminates jamming by automatically pulling bales away from your baler, so the accumulator does not have to run fast in order to keep up with the baler. Plus, our dump system matches your ground speed, without dragging the bales on the ground so it creates tight, uniform packages every time — even on steep or rough terrain. Our Model 950 also creates a "tie" package which gives you the ability to build stable stacks without hand labor.

1034 ACCUMULATORProduct Spotlight

The innovative design of the accumulator allows it to be fully automatic without the use of hydraulics or electronics, with an operating capacity of 12 bales per minute. It works, using excess energy from the baler plunger to push the bales to the top of the front chute. Then, as gravity moves the bales downward, the last bale in each row swings a door to open the next row. The last bale in the grab opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights return all of the gates back to their starting position, ready for another grab in good time before the next bale comes.

BALE CADDIE ACCUMULATORProduct Spotlight

The Bale Caddie is perfect for commercial applications as well as farm or ranch operations. The automation from your baler to the Bale Caddie allows for a one person bale handling system. A spiked steel roller, powered by a hydraulic motor, gives separation between baler and bale accumulator. The accumulator is compatible with closed or open hydraulic systems. It will produce two or three long by four wide bale configurations. And with only three moving parts, maintaince time and costs are minimal.
