It makes me love that bale accumulator and loader all the more. You know how hard it is to find kids willing to lift a bale here? It's iust easier to get a bunch of us older guys and go twice as slow.

I'm 47 and have sat in airconditioned offices the last 26 years and have the extra weight that comes from sitting for a living. Last summer I hired two different highschool seniors to help handle hay. The first kid was state wrestler and I hoped I could work hard enough to get a decent days work out of him (he threw them on I stacked). About the third wagon load he headed for the house saying he needed to cool off. About half an hour later he headed for home never to return and I finished off the last couple of wagons by myself.

Next week I had about 400 bales on the ground and another kid that is a physical trainer that wanted to "get a work out". He lasted two wagons and said he couldn't take it anymore and left me to finish by myself.

Granted both days were extremely hot and heat indexes were around/over 100 but I truly thought I would be the weak link working with these young men.

Can I ask what you were paying those two kids? Sometimes pay determines how much stamina a person has, or is willing to have.

I paid them to damn much. In actual hours worked it was over $15 per hour.

Right now as a high school graduate of 18 I get paid $10 dollars an hr. to stack square bales for neighbors. I work free for my girlfriend's family and with her driving and me stacking on the wagon we do 500 to 600 bales a day... Stacked 400 on the gooseneck the other day and drove 25 miles to deliver with the promise of labor to unload. When I get there their 18 year son and friends were to busy playing video games in the house to help unload the hay for his own horses. left his mother and father unload into the mow so I helped unload the trailer... Sorry for a little rant there but had to let that one out.
