Bale transporter: The Quad-X Bale Transporter has been designed for transporting silage, hay, haylage and straw bales. This special trailer can be towed with an ATV, utility vehicle, car or 4×4. The Bale Transporter is ideal for bringing in bales from the field and moving them around even in wet conditions.
The Bale Transporter has been cleverly designed ensuring it is well balanced in order to reduce the weight on the drawbar of the towing vehicle. You can even re-position the transporter by hand when it is loaded with a hay bale. The transporter was developed to make the bale mass assist with the loading, reducing the force required to load a 750kg tonne bale.
