 Self-loading process

Loading the BFR-180 is as simple as 1-2-3, using our proven self-loading system.

  1. First, the feeding cradle is disconnected by the pull of a rope, or the innovative preset unlatching system. The tractor or telehandler backs up and picks up the bale, with integrated spikes. It is then lifted on to the feed-bed.
  2. The BFR-180 has a very low cradle that makes bale loading simple and fast.
  3. Once loaded the operator then drives the forks back into the feed unit. The machine is now ready to feed!
