Caterpillar Attachments has added a bale grab work tool for skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, multi-terrain loaders and compact wheel loaders having a universal, skid-steer-type interface. The bale grab can grasp, carry and place round or square baled material, without damaging either the wrapper or the bale. The new work tool's rigid design ensures reliability and long-term durability, according to the manufacturer.

The bale grab is designed to provide optimum machine stability when loading or carrying baled material. Bales of wheat, hay and other materials for livestock feed or bedding are transported easily to and from the bale wrapper and when moving and storing the material. The rounded arm design allows the bale grab to firmly grasp round or square bales, whether sitting flat or placed side down.

Tubular construction eliminates damage to wrapped bales, and for optimum reliability, durability, and safety, the bale grab incorporates Cat XT-3 ES hydraulic hose, couplings and O-ring face seals for leak-free performance. All hoses are placed in nylon-woven sleeves for added operator protection. CEG
