Have one identical to second picture. Is painted NI colors but tag on it says Kneib or similar. To use with one person you need trailers or truck with sides. Before going to rounds, I used a couple of summers with some old kicker wagons I got - Just had to lower the left side a bit in 2 places for the loader. A real godsend!

Hadn't heard of using them with one person. That might be an idea. I could leave the grain racks on the truck (assuming the pop-up is taller than the racks).
How heavy did you make your bales. I usually make mine around 60lbs. Would worry a bit about the bales popping apart as they landed on the bed.

No where near 60 lbs - Wife wouldn't be able to handle in the barn. More like 40 I guess. I was baling with an old Ford 250 PTO baler and an 8N. Was a struggle with heavy windrows, and the baler didn't like heavy bales. Wouldn't miss a single knot in 500 or 600 bales if I kept it set like that. The bales were pretty dense, just shorter, and stayed together OK.

I think I managed to attach a pic of my bale loader with a regular flat bed JD hay wagon (1942) and our '44A. Couldn't find one with a wagon with sides.
