  • Round Bale Trailer

    Has anyone built a round bale trailer/dollie? The trailer I have seen holds one bale, and it scoops the bale off the ground. It would be a good welding project, but probably not much less expensive than buying a factory built model. What do you think? Are there any plans available? Thanks.

    I have never seen this but from your description It sounds simple basicly you would have to have a trailer with a scoop of some sort mounted near the rear of the trailer and it would scoop up and hold the bale

        Cant help you on the trailer ,but I did see an old school bus converted to haul round bales,Guy bought the bus at a county auction and left enough cab on for the driver,made a flatbed out of the rest.Worked great
