Round & SquareContractors Bale Handlers

Softhands LX200

Built for the serious contractor or large scale farmer the versatile LX200 Softhands®  bale grab can handle both square and round bales. Oversized 38mm bushed pivots give unbeatable strength and reliability. With the tallest hands on the market, you can safely clamp 2 bales at a time, providing more grip on the bale reducing damage and deformation when compared with conventional bale grabs. Horizontal nudge bars eliminate pinch points and eliminate ripped or damage bales when compared to other bale clamps. Field-tested to handle bales up to two tons.
