Haybuster StackEZE 1800
Photo taken summer of 1974. I am not sure how many people
had seen these so i thought i would post some pics of my
pa's. Not sure how long they were made but my pa had a
couple of them and he loved them. This model made a 18'
diameter stack, a 15' model was also made. Tractor in front
is a Versatile 300 which was a hydro, pa said it was perfect
on the stacker.

Hay was squeezed between the 2 canvases up to the top, then
it was carried to the center and dropped into the basket.
The wheel on the end was used for packing the hay. Hydrolic
valves mounted in the cab controled side to side movement of
the arm and the up and down of the arm.

unloading the finished stack. you had to open the basket in
the back and then hydralic driven chains carried the stack
off as you slowly inched forward with the tractor. I forgot
to add earlier that the whole basket is slowly rotating as
you are loading, that is how you get the basket full

Re: Haybuster StackEZE 1800
Hey Will,

The stacks were usually left out in the field till late
fall, then moved home with a stack mover. Then he either
fed it as loose hay or ground it.

To answer your other question, when i was looking for a 12
row corn head i was unable to find a CIH 12 row to my
liking. I wanted hydrolic deck plates so i was looking for
a CIH 2212 and could not find a used one only new. The Cat
row units are very similiar to CIH, I feel it even does a
better job of chopping the stocks. Also we have been
looking into getting a Cat combine. I got the adaptor from
Brad Bish in NE, all in all everything worked great and it
looks original, never seen anyone else do it!

Thanks and have a great New Years

Re: Haybuster StackEZE 1800
Hello Brent,

How did you get get the stack on on the stackmover?
Did you pull it with a tennisnet looking net and a winch on
the kart? Or did you it on another way?

Re: Haybuster StackEZE 1800
Thanks for the comments guys! I will do my best to answer
your questions. To load the stacks on the mover you back up
square to the stack, then you tilt the bed down very
similiar to how the platform is tilted, in my above pics,
when unloading from the Haybuster. On the mover itself
there are multiple chains running the length of the mover.
The chains look like standard roller chain just bigger, then
every foot or so there is a raised edge. My best
comparison, almost identical to how a chain saw looks. The
chains are hydraulicly or PTO drivin, they turn quite
slowly, so with them turning and the bed tilted you slowly
back under the stack. The chains pull the stack up onto the
bed, once on, you tilt it back level and go. Unloading you
do the same, just in reverse.

As far as they popularity, I personally have only seen 3 of
them other than our own. Most of the ranchers i know went
from baling small square bales to the large round bales.
All of my dad's hay land was close to home and he liked the
convenience of being able to stack and haul the hay with one
man and one tractor.

If you have anymore questions I will gladdly try to answer.
Wishing everyone the Best and a very Happy New Year!!
