A BALE stacker capable of bundling together 14 small square bales was demonstrated in Shepparton recently.
The Arcusin Multi Pack C14 is not new and has returned to Australia after a short absence, revitalised under NSW importer ACF Equipment Suppliers.
It’s expected to catch the interest of hay contractors looking to package bales to sell to small farmers and equestrian enthusiasts.
The machine collects bales via a chute on the left side of the machine and pushes them up into a chamber where they’re held in place by a hydraulic ram.
Once the stacker reaches capacity, the bales are knotted together using a mechanism which is very similar to square balers.
The bales are then ejected as one bundle ready to be picked up.
Capacity is determined by a choice of chamber heights which can accommodate from six to 14 bales.
