Each Maxilator Accumagrapple replaces a small army of hay handlers. Easily and safely gather, accumulate, lift, load, pack, stack, and unload square bales up to 42” in length. With the guide plates and packing arms in place, the Accumagrapple stacks 8 bales in four vertical columns and finishes the stack with two horizontal “tie bales”, keeping the stack tight and stable. The guide plates and packing arms and removed in a matter of minutes with no tools, converting the Accumagrapple into a versatile grapple. Keep a packing arm on either the left or right side, and you can use it to squeeze your bales into tight stacks on a flatbed or in your barn. The Accumagrapple even comes with a machine-mounted kickstand that allows for storage in packing mode.
The Accumagrapple is versatile and can accommodate standard 14 x 18 square bales in lengths ranging from 36” to 42”. We recommend 39” long bales for best performance and tightly stacked groups.
Each Accumagrapple is carefully welded, coated, and assembled in Rockmart, Georgia by skilled craftsmen. Maxilator uses a tough thermoplastic coating that lasts longer out in the field than powder coat or paint. We stand behind our products, offering an industry-leading 5-year product warranty on the Accumagrapple.
Attach your Accumagrapple to your skid steer or tractor, hook the single hydraulic circuit, and carry your Accumagrapple to the field raised off the ground high enough to clear any obstacles. Always be aware of your surroundings and move at a safe speed. Take care of the extended length and swing radius that an Accumagrapple adds to your machine.
As you approach the hay bales, lower the unit until it is gliding a few inches above the ground. Push the bales forward, letting them slide to the back of the channels. When in position, lock the bales in with the hydraulic-powered hooks and lift the machine off the ground until you reach the next group of bales. We recommend lifting the bales whenever possible to reduce chances of dirtying your bales.
Once you have ten bales accumulated, carry the stack to your truck, trailer, or directly to the storage site. Stack the bales and release with the remote hydraulic hooks. If possible, alternate the stack direction to make best use of the tie bales.
Repeat until you’re done within the comfort of your skid steer or tractor. The Accumagrapple makes the backbreaking labor of loading square bales downright fun and easy!
Your Maxilator Accumagrapple is covered by a limited 5 year warranty.
