LEON - Model BH855 - Bale Handler
From Bale Handlers
The LEON BH855 Bale Handler is a heavy duty built 'HYDRAULIC PUSH OFF' designed to handle from 8 to 15 round bales in 48' to 72' width capacities. Featuring 'two row' or 'three row' capabilites, heavy duty frame, and smooth hydraulic push off unloading technology, the LEON BH855 can transport bales up to 3750 lbs, both wet and dry. The service friendly, trouble free maintenance design allows for easy-handling to help farmers reduce handling costs while minimizing bale damages.
HYDRAULIC PUSH-OFF TECHNOLOGY - This technology eliminates the old fashioned approach to unloading which utilized chains, motors and sprockets which can easily tear and damage the bale. Only LEON’s new hydraulic push-off technology can minimize heavy maintenance cost, failures, and downtime experiences on older competitive machines.
TILTING MAIN DECK - The main deck offers operators a hydraulic tilting action for gentle and efficient unloading of bales. With the simultaneous motion of the Hydraulic Push-off Technology and the hydraulic tilting action of the main deck, round bales are unloaded in an orderly and undamaged fashion.
STEEL UNIFRAME CONSTRUCTION - LEON heavy duty construction is employed throughout the total machine framework.
FLOATATION TIRES - LEON’s Bale Handler utilizes high and wide used commercial truck tires as standard equipment. The 16.5” x 22.5” wide tires on heavy duty wheels provide better clearance and floatation when hauling heavy loads on soft, damp, or loose ground conditions.
EASY SERVICEABILITY - Grease banks provide quick maintenance from ground level and the operator maintains easy access to all components. No sprockets, no chains or hydraulic motors to contend with.
ADJUSTABLE BALE LIFT ARM - The LEON BH855 Bale Lift Arm system effortlessly picks up 4’ to 6’ wide bales on the fly. The contoured rounded arm can gently lift and transport traditional ‘twine wrapped’ and/or ‘net wrapped’ bales.
LEON DEFLECTOR PLATE - The exclusive LEON BH855 deflector plate ensures that bales are positioned correctly every time on the main deck. Once the bale is picked with the lift arm, the bale lands directly on the deflector plate. .
LOW PROFILE DESIGN - The heavy duty low profile design guarantees a clear unobstructed view from the tractor cab. Whether working on flat and/or hill terrain, the operator has excellent visibility of the machine and hydraulic lifting system.
TANDEM AXLES - The LEON Tandem axle design equipped with large width floatation truck tires allow for higher speed transport on roads and in the field. Maximum load rating on the LEON BH855 is 36,000 lbs. ( 16,329 kg).
SIDE RAILS - The unit is equipped with rounded side rails to cradle the bale while in transport. Both left and ride side rails are adjustable and removable.
TRANSPORATION SAFETY - Unit comes available with safety chains, parking jack, optional lighting package, slow moving sign, and reflective stickers.
