Works With

How the Grabber Works

The Standard Grabber features an adjustable crowd bar that is mounted on the side of the grabber. When approaching a group of bales, the adjustable crowd bar works in combination with the back frame to crowd the bale group together. Once the group is tight, a single hydraulic cylinder rotates all the hooks simultaneously into the top of the bales to pick up the group. Two cast hooks per bale ensure the bales are secure until you release them on the waiting truck or wagon.

It’s just as quick and easy using the Kuhns Grabber at the barn to unload your truck or wagon into neat stacks. Whether its loading the truck for delivery or to feed your livestock, the grabber quickly retrieves bales from the barn without the operator ever needing to touch a bale.

All Kuhns Grabbers can be equipped with a quick-attach mounting brackets for easy connection to all makes and models of skid steers, forklifts, telehandlers and loader tractors.

Features & Benefits

Baler Efficiency Calculator

The Baler Efficiency Calculator has been preloaded with default values from an average hay operation. Change the numbers in Red to customize the calculator to your operation. This will demonstrate how changing from a pulled wagon to an Accumulator and Grabber System will increase the daily output of your baler.

Disclaimer: The Baler Efficiency Calculator is an estimation tool used to estimate an approximate gain in efficiency using an accumulator and grabber system versus a pulled bale wagon and does not factor turning at the end of the rows or changing twine, etcetera. The Baler Efficiency Calculator calculations are in no way a guarantee by Kuhns Mfg as to the output of our equipment or any accumulator and grabber system on your farm. Conditions on every farm are different and vary by the day. Please call us if you have any questions about the calculator or would like to work with us on calculations for your farm.
