    I hope nobody was hurt. It looks like the bale came back down the loader arms when the spear broke. Am I seeing that right?

    FYI-

    I like a spear that has some sort of back stop to prevent a bale from coming back even if you forget to level out the tilt cylinders as you lift. If you use one that is on a carrier as opposed to clamping on the bucket, you gain a little more lift but lose a little reach as the bale is closer to the tractor.

    We've used both and all in all, I'll usually give up the reach to have a bit more stability.

    Huh? What's the story here? You picked up a round bale with the loader bucket?

    Is that bucket a quick attach? Clamp on spears are not the best way to go if you are moving a lot of bales. If the it is a quick attach the best bet would be a set of forks, you can weld spear sleeves on the frame and have the best of both worlds.

    JD4044M beat me to it, but you get the idea.

    They make clamp on ones but they are not that good. One spear is not enough the bale will spin or turn as you pick it up. I welded in holders for my spears on my forklift attachment. The back makes it safe to lift even heavy 1,200 lbs with them. These are Titan Spears and very strong.Click image for larger version.

    I used a hole saw to cut holes in the 3" x 1/4" Box Steel then welded the coupler into the box. I did a Tee for more strength and welded the works into the frame. Then added 2 couplers to store the spears into when not in use. This Frame is also my Fork Lift and Boom Pole Attachment set up.
