Truck body hay feeder

It is always good to see gear destined for the scrap pile rebirthed as something useful. This large square bale feeder built by Russell Thompson from Woodanilling WA is a good example made using an old truck body trailer with a fabricated bale pusher, its own battery, winch and cable remote control switch.

Bales are loaded onto the body rails witha fork and once strings are cut and removed,the winch retracts the steel rope which rollsaround a pulley at the feed-out end of thetrailer.
