The special shape of the gripper arms prevents damage to the bottom bale when bales are stacked on top of one another.

Bale gripper / round bale gripper
Round bale grabber | RBG 160 | RBG 140

The RBG round bale grabber makes it a snap to load and stack round bales of any type (silage, hay, straw) with diameters ranging from 1.10 to 1.60 m. Thanks to its round design, the grabber is capable of holding the bale securely and handling it in a gentle manner. Since the pressure on the bale is distributed evenly, the film cannot be overstretched or become damaged. Another crucial characteristic of this round bale grabber is the unit’s short and slender design which keeps the center of gravity close to the loader.

The round bale grab is available in two versions:

RBG 160 - bale diameter of 1.10 - 1.60 m

RBG 140 - bale diameter of 0.80 - 1.40 m
