Loading round hay bales

Postby Zorro » Sat Oct 11, 2014 11:59 pm

I saw a piece on TV one night about a farmer whose regular loader, which has the long spike for going through the center of round bales, was down. He instead used a regular bucket loader and a round bale rolled right down the loader arms and broke the poor man's neck paralyzing him.
Hold her Knute, she's headin' for the buckwheat!
