Feeding a lot of bales doesn't have to take a long time. The DML Generation 2X2 is quick to load and safe to use. Designed to feed out all types of 4 foot round bales, this machine will also handle square bales including silage and hay. The trailed bale feeder has a low centre of gravity with adjustable width wide wheel spacing, and retains the bale securely in the cradle, making it great for working on and around hills.

The really clever part of this product is a unique hydraulic loading system which is simple to use and offers paramount safety and efficiency. Bales are speared with high tensile tines and slowly placed on the deck in a controlled motion. the bale can be held just above the feeding cradle giving you the opportunity to remove plastic and net wrap safely and quickly, without leaving silage on the ground. After loading the first bale, the tines are retracted and reset to pick up and carry a second bale.

The Generation 2X2 can feed out in either direction. The feeding rate is operator controlled from the tractor for the desired feed row size.

If you are looking for a simple, robust bale feeder with more than 25 years of design and development behind it don't go past a DML Generation 2X2.
