Lots of customers have been calling because its winter, and feeding wrapped bales of hay can be a drag if you don’t have the right equipment. We have two different models of Keltec Bale Slicers we sell, one to slice 4ft bales, the KT45, and one to slice 5ft bales, the KT56. These are both economically priced and designed to make your job more efficient. Keltec bale slicers cut the bale from the bottom to the top and holds the plastic wrap on the bale. Here is what Keltec has to say about the bale slicers:
“At Keltec, our aim is to make your life easier: The Keltec Bale Slice is designed to remove the hassle from the way wrapped bales are fed. Our patented system, which speeds up the operation of feeding, is designed to ensure you have the least amount of work to do with maximum productivity, reducing costs and saving valuable time. The plastic wrap and netting is removed from the bale while the bale is cut, all from the seat of your tractor or digger.”
The Keltec bale slice has a patented system of grab, cut and removal is all controlled by one double acting hydraulic service which makes it perfect for loading diet feeders, circular feeders or for use in feeding passages. Add to this the advantage of being able to use the incorporated fork which makes light work of the day to day jobs around the yard and also for easy and safe pushing of silage to desired positions, all from the comfort of your cab.
The Keltec Bale Slice has been proven to increase efficiency and productivity when it comes to feeding livestock. On average, it has been calculated that a minimum of 6 round bales can be fed directly to the feeding passage in as little as 15 minutes, thats an average of 2.5 minutes per bale without any manual handling of the feed or the plastic.
