Hesston Stacker
A week or two ago I had a thread (Farming in the 70's) that had some pics of a Hesston stacker That we used on the farm where I worked. Last Friday I stopped by and they were using it again after it had set in the shed for a number of years. This series of pics show how it works!!! JD 3020 ,Hesston Stackhand 10 ENJOY!!

No, the front rides on the ground (skid plates) or you can hold it up with hydraulic cylinders. And the Flails are designed for clearence.

Re: Hesston Stacker
Nice photos Mark,

I have seen a few Stakhands here in the past (30A models) working in hay, they are interesting to watch.

The ones I saw, put all the stacks in a corner of the paddock, together, then the farmer would fence them off to keep stock out.

I used a stakfeeder on a farm I worked on 20 years ago, was an interesting machine.

Re: Hesston Stacker
Hesston made a Stak mover & a Stak fork for moving the stacks, also a Stakfeeder for the larger stacks.
