The BT500 Round Bale Transporter / Trailer is a simple yet robust tool for the transportation of round baled feed such as hay, straw or silage to wet ground beyond the reach of a conventional loader or tractor, or where a loader / tractor is not available. Designed for use behind an ATV, UTV or 4×4 (off-road only) the low ground pressure and relatively light weight of the BT500 allows it to travel easily over rough or wet ground for feeding out-wintered stock. Alternatively the BT500 can be used on smallholdings and in equestrian yards where a tractor is not available, allowing round bales to be used in place of small square bales at a considerable cost saving.
The BT500 features an electric winch for loading and unloading the bale as standard, along with a remote control. This allows even the heaviest bales to be loaded with ease, and makes hitching and un-hitching the bale transporter quick and easy with just one small electrical plug connection to be made. The innovative design of the BT500 round bale transporter means that the cradle arms automatically grip the bale as it is reversed up to it for loading, with only 1 small ratchet strap to be attached before the bale can be loaded securely and safely using the remote winch control.
