Three bale accumulators

Bale Accumulators

  • Bale Accumulators

    Bale accumulators are machines that arrange bales into groups and situate them on the ground. A grapple mounted on a loader retrieves the grouped bales.
    Norden Mfg Bale Accumulators for small square bales have a simple design and automatically arrange the bales into groups. They then automatically place the hay or straw bales on the ground when the group is complete.

    The Norden Mfg Bale Accumulator is unique since it does all of this with no hydraulics or electronics. We also manufacture grapples to load those bales onto waiting wagons or trailers for transportation to storage.

    We offer eight different models. You can have a system that will fit your current equipment or your needs. Things to consider are:

      • Size of your wagons
      • Size of your loader
      • What you intend to do with your bales

    For example, if you intend to load van trailers, the 18-bale system is a nice fit. If your wagons are only 7.5′ wide, the AF10 is a nice fit because two bales long with a tie row fits nicely.

    It is also important to choose if you want the bales to be flat on strings or “on edge.” The bales stacked on edge tend to sweat better and hold their shape better. Many people stack the bales flat though because they like the increased stability.

    Following is a complete list of accumulators available from Norden Mfg. The descriptions should help you chose your system.

  • 18 Bale Edge
  • AE18 Bale Accumulator

    This hay accumulator arranges bales on edge with 6 bales wide and 3 bales long. This is our largest bale accumulator and handles small square bales from 32″ to 40″ in length. It is paired with the 618 Grabber and the KN618 Tie-Grabber. We believe that these bundle dimensions are ideal for filling van trailers and utilizing the most space.

    These bundle dimensions are also ideal for 9′ x 24′ wagons which also allows the wagons to be completely filled without wasted space. Another benefit of this accumulator model is that it offers a 17% time-saving advantage over the 15 bale system and 45% time-savings over any 10 bale system. With each set of bales, the 18 bale group contains 20% more bales than the 15 bale group with a 17% reduction in the number of packs.
