    3PT Bale Spear on JD 1025R?

    I've owned the 1025R, 60D auto connect deck, H120 and box blade for about three months. The only problem is I should have bought it years ago. We use small round hay bales, 4' and maybe 600-700#. Has anyone used a 3PT bale spear to move them around? I know this is close to the weight rating, but it would be handy to move them maybe 50" around the barn.

    Thanks!

    As far back as the weight would be set, that my push you past the lift capacity of the 1025.

    If it doesn't exceed the lift capacity by being so far back, I think you would definitely want to have the loader or some front weights on.

    With the loader On my 1025 the 3 point hitch is usually maxed out before I have been too light on the front end. Maybe I have not been just under max capacity with the 3 point and loader on. I know I have had several trailers to move which were over max lift capacity for my 3 point. They were a no go as loaded.
