    I like that with the bucket still on.He'll learn real quick about keeping the load low the first time it gets tippy holding it up high like that.

    I’m impressed with the homemade grapple on the bucket too, but either this is professional operator on a closed circuit or he has no idea how close he is to going over.

    It can certainly be done, I moved our 4 x 4 round bales quite a few times with mine, but using a round bale spear.

    This is an older one I found on the side of one of our fields while cutting back the creep but I have moved our fresh ones as well.

    The rear tires might be loaded with calcium chloride.

    A neat build, but I guess some people are a lot braver than me. I had the pucker factor just watching it.

    I don't know FW, he's pretty light in the rear end, I wouldn't think of doing that without my ballast box on.

    You can see when he picks up the end of the one bale that the rear end is really tippy. At one point, while he's moving, the right rear tire comes up an inch or two.
