The Kosch Balehandler is offered as either a 6-bale or 8-bale hauling unit. The Balehandler can be used to gather, accumulate, transport, and unload round bales from the hay field. It can also be used to retrieve the round bales at a later time and transport the baled hay to a feeding location.

The heavy-duty conveyor chain is designed to be gentle with net wrapped bales but can retrieve bales that are frozen to the ground or have deteriorated from long-term weather exposure. This unit is equipped with a heavy-duty straight pick up arm that will withstand any loading conditions. It can be supplied with a winged quarter turn arm that will retrieve bales by operating the balehandler in the same direction that the baler worked the field.

All operations are accomplished with hydraulic control levers from the seat of your tractor. Additional floatation is achieved by providing 8 tires in place of 4 tires.
