SQUARE BALE HANDLING & FEEDING
Rugged, Dependable Bale Handling
The Hydra FLKR™ is easily and quickly installed on most Hydra Bed® models and can be removed in minutes when the feeding season is completed.
The Hydra FLKR™ was developed to safely and efficiently accomplish single-operator large square bale feeding, greatly reducing costs and risk of injury. After bales are loaded, utilizing the proven hydraulics of the Hydra Bed®, the Hydra FLKR™ separates flakes from each bale, then drops them onto the ground or feed aprons as well as into bunks, hay rings or tire feeders. The operator controls the rate at which each bale is processed. To minimize leaf loss, flake separation is accomplished utilizing an innovative retracting
finger mechanism. The hydraulic bale ramping function helps control premature flake drop. The bale advance design provides operator determined incremental feeding rates.
The machine is powered by the Hydra Bed® hydraulic system and is controlled from the driver’s seat. The Hydra FLKR™ is easily and quickly installed on most Hydra Bed® models and can be removed in minutes when the feeding season is completed. The HydraBed® arms can be equipped with bale engagement attachments to securely grip and load bales onto the Hydra FLKR™. A second bale may be carried in the arms during transport and feeding. The unit may also be loaded by a tractor loader or other suitable equipment
