We don't have a kicker and I'll be dipped in goose poop before I drop them on the field just so I can come back later and pick them up. IMO that's nuts and completely wasted effort, even though I know a lot of people that do it. We load off the bale chute directly onto the wagon. I've filled the wagon myself many times doing the driving and stacking, and then mowed it away alone too. Not a lot of fun, 500 bales is a days work and a killer!
I don't mind mowing the bales alone at all as long as I don't have to do a lot of walking on the bales. My ankles and knees can't take that. I have a 16 foot skeleton conveyor that the big conveyor dumps onto. The 16 footer carries the hay across the mow about 2/3 of the way and it's a life saver. I also have 75 or 100 feet of mow conveyor to install one day. That is waiting on my doing a lot of other work in the barn first. Not sure how that will work out.

Horizontal conveyors are the best things on earth.
Just loaded 1800 bales into a friends hot/humid barn last weekend. If that conveyor wasn't there, we'd still be loading. Never used one before his, I'm used to dumping them off the elevator and trying to work downwards from there... The conveyor is equivalent to at least two warm bodies if the barn's configured for it.
