Re: 6410
Nice pics, and interesting technique of carrying the bales, I'm assuming with pallet forks? I do that once in a while but it's not my preference, pain in the ass to keep it from rolling at times.

Just curious, why did you go to a 6000 series for the new one over a 7000? 6030s are still nice machines though.

Re: 6410
Josh,

Quite a few farmers here use the forks for carting rolls, as opposed to bale spikes. I guess most farmers here have the forks on the loader to unload pallets of seed + big 1 tonne bags of fertilizer, so use the same forks to load rolls as well.

Telehandlers arent really popular here yet, so most farmers have a front end loader mounted on a tractor (not usually their main "workhorse" tractor but a secondary tractor).

Cheers,

The Cowboy ;-)

Re: 6410
Actually had nothing to do with technique, it wasn't lined up the other way, that all. ;-) The 7000 series is overkill for what we need the loader tractor for. It is a homebuilt bale spear that we were using. You'd have to hit those bales pretty hard to get pallet fork into them. They were baled wet. :-( We can use the spear as pallet forks as well though, it has dual prongs on it.

Again sorry for the really late reply.
