I understand all about picking up a dumped load of bales! I too, dumped one load "twice" one time just trying to go about 300 yards to the barn! (My wife said I'd been drinking too much...........SURELY that couldn't have been right!!) Last winter I built 100 3x6 wooden pallets out of 2x4's. I sat these pallets in the field after baling and stacked the bales (with my grabber) on the pallets. I sat two pallets side by side to form a 6x6 pallet as such. I stacked these five high with my bale grabber....effectively making 40 bale stacks. AFter I got the pallets all loaded in the field I then picked them up with my pallet forks one pallet at a time (picking up only a 3x6 pallet or half of the stack)and sat them on the wagon. I then secured the load with load binder straps and took them to the barn. Once there, I unloaded them one pallet at a time...thus unloading 20 bales at a time. Unloading at the barn was a nightmare! The entire load needed to be on a level spot and even then the remaining half of the stack would tend to want to fall over. Mind you now.....there had been no alcohol involved up to this point............but it was about to start. Long story short, my master plan didn't work. BUT..........with your idea of criss-cross stacking of the bales onto the wagon, I'm going to try it again! Thanks Larry for the idea!
