Kuhns MFG is a close-knit family business, with several family members in key positions in the company. Kuhns Mfg has been providing quality square bale handling products to hay growers around the world for over 18 years. Although Kuhns has developed new models and innovated many new features, they remain true to their original pioneering design principles.

Kuhns Hay Accumulator

8 models – 4 to 18 bale systems for all needs
Fully automated
No hydraulics or electronics
Gently carried bales stay clean & intact
High capacity to handle any baler output
The Kuhns Hay Accumulator system uses gravity and a simple mechanical system to efficiently arrange small square bales into a group.

Unlike other bale accumulators, it uses no hydraulics, electronics, or chains. Using excess energy from the baler plunger, the bales are pushed up and out the top of the chute. As the bales slide down the accumulator bed, the last bale in each row swings a gate to open the next row. The last bale in the group opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights automatically return all of the gates back to their starting position, ready for the next bale.

Kuhns Tie-Grabber

7 Models 8 to 18 bales
Tied grabs make for safer and faster loading and stacking
Save time securing loads for transportation
Can be used with any brand of hay accumulator
The KN618 picks up the bales 6 wide and 3 long on edge using 36 teeth on 6 bars. The operator approaches the bale group with a strand of twine already stretched across the back plate of the Tie-Grabber. The hydraulic squeeze bar ensures the group is packed tightly together before the teeth are set. After the teeth are set, the arm completes the rotation around the group and the knotter ties the twine tight, ensuring stable transportation to storage. The KN618 handles 14×18” bales 32″- 36″ long with no adjustments. If you want your bales longer than 36″, an extended version of this model is available.

A Kuhns grabber or Tie-Grabber mounted on a front end loader or skid steer can pick up the bales and load them onto a waiting truck or wagon. The packs can then be stacked in the barn with a grabber. Without the operator ever needing to touch a bale.

Kuhns Mfg Design Philosophy

The best solutions to complex problems are the simple ones. As long as that simplicity gets results. Dependable equipment repeats these results time and time again, without error. The Kuhns Hay Accumulator system blends simplicity, efficiency, and dependability into a truly exceptional small square bale handling solution. Even though we strive to keep things simple, we still have multiple patents that help ensure Kuhns equipment gets the job done right. Our eight different models give you the ability to optimize bale handling capacity for your specific farm operation.

Our square bale handling system eliminates the need for manual bale handling. This significantly reduces the impact on the back, joints and overall bodies of the valued people in your haying operation. With the time you save compared to manually handling bales, you can spend that time on other areas of the farm and with your family.

“Being a one-person haymaking operation, the Kuhns bale accumulator system has enabled me to more than triple my cash in square bale production. Before I purchased my Kuhns, I was ready to stop all square baling due to labor requirements. I can basically fill my barn and seldom ever touch a bale by hand. The system is simple, reliable, and low cost compared to other brands on the market. The Tie-Grabber completes the system nicely as it saves valuable time when loading, hauling, and unloading trailers. I would have no hesitation in recommending this system to anyone who is looking to increase their productivity and profit with less labor required.

“I am very pleased with the equipment.  It has made my haying operation a true one person operation that has allowed me to expand.  As a full time firefighter that works an odd rotating schedule, finding help is not always easy and the use of your equipment has made my life much easier as well much more enjoyable.”

“When we brought our Kuhns 1036F home we were missing a few parts that I didn’t know about. When I learned about this I had already cut down some hay and was going to bale it the next day. After talking to the guys at Kuhns they overnight mailed the parts at their expense to my house. I installed them and was ready to bale that afternoon.”


“I would sincerely like to convey just how pleased we are with the outstanding customer service and support we have so far received from Kuhns Mfg. From the inception, your employee John Byler was extremely knowledgeable and has guided us in our decision-making process. Earlier this week, and going above and beyond, John delivered the Telehandler bracket at the late hour of approx. 10 pm and did not leave until all very minor adjustments were made with regards to a successful installation. This bracket with your involvement was manufactured to exact specifications to fit our JLG G6 unit, no small feat, was successfully accomplished. Please extend our gratitude to all members of your extended team who made this effort a complete success. We look forward to implementing this new system of operation in our business and would expect no less support in the future from Kuhns Mfg.”

“I wanted to let you know that we were able to bale and stack 810 squares in the barn on Saturday. The new Tie-Grabber performed without a hitch and it is a fantastic piece of equipment. Thank you so much for sticking with it and getting it to me in time for the August cutting.”
