Preparing for Operation
CAPACITIES
Bale spears and forks have different overall capacities, depending upon the particular tine and frame specifications. Always check
the rated capacity of your prime mover, loader and this attachment prior to use. Never exceed any of those capacities. See pages
8-10 of this manual for detailed capacity information and special notes regarding this attachment. See the operator’s manuals for
your prime mover and loader for their capacities, which should never be exceeded.
PRIME MOVER REQUIREMENTS AND PREPARATION
The required size of the prime mover will be determined by the size and weight of the bales to be handled. Remember, high
moisture bales, such as silage bales are very heavy in relation to similarly sized dry hay bales. Always use a prime mover large
enough to safely handle your bales.
Prior to operation, always check the prime mover’s hydraulic lift system. It should operate up and down smoothly and hold its
position when set. Refer to your prime mover’s owner’s manual or dealer for any adjustments necessary to put the hydraulic lift
system in good working order.
Always make sure your prime mover and loader have been properly maintained and are in good working order prior to use.
Always follow all recommendations regarding ballast weight, counter weight, etc. to maintain stability with your prime mover as
indicated in its’ Operator’s Manual. It is recommended that the prime mover be equipped with a Rollover Protection System
(ROPS) and a seat belt.

Operation - Round Bales
Make sure all operators have read all the safety warnings and precautions in this manual and those in the prime mover’s operator’s
manual. Know and obey all Federal, State and local laws and applicable professional guidelines for your operation. Know and follow good work practices when assembling, maintaining, repairing, mounting, removing or operating this equipment. If you are
handling bales with the front end loader and the 3 pt. hitch on the prime mover, always load the 3 pt. attachment first and unload
last.
POSITIONING and LOADING ROUND BALE(S)
When Spearing on a Slope
Step 1: Approach the round face of the bale so that the tine (s) will penetrate the bale slightly below
center. If the bales are lying on a round face, use a loader to tip the bales up before using this product.
Do not use this attachment to tip the bales. If bales to be loaded are on a slope approach the bale with
the attachment facing uphill.
Approach Bale w/ Attachment Facing Uphill
Do not use this product to pick up a round bale that is lying on the round face. Damage to
this product and the prime mover may result.
Step 2: Always spear bales with a slightly
downward motion. Spearing bales with a 5°
angle on the tine (s), and lowering the boom
as the tine(s) is entering the bale will allow
the bale to be dropped off more easily.
Note: Only handle the type and quantity of
bales that your bale fork was designed to
lift!
Step 3: Push the tine(s) into the bale until
the bale is against the frame. Make sure
you have penetrated the hay bale far
enough so the bale doesn’t want to come off the end of the spear. If, when you initially pick the bale up, it tends to droop rearward, this would indicate you have not penetrated the bale far enough.
Step 4 - Single Bale Models: Raise and roll back the bale just high enough to provide ground clearance.
Step 4 - Dual Bale Models: If you have purchased a product with capacity of more than one round bale, only one bale may be
loaded at a time. Carefully load the first bale per the loading instructions above, utilizing only the 2 tines on the left or right of the
bale fork. Once that bale has been securely loaded, lift it off the ground several inches and repeat steps 2 and 3 with the tines on
the opposite side of the fork. Unloading will be last on first off. After loading the 2nd bale raise and roll back the bales just high
enough to achieve ground clearance.
WARNING! NEVER EXCEED LIFTING CAPACITY OF YOUR PRIME MOVER, LOADER, 3 PT HITCH OR THIS ATTACHMENT. CONSIDER BOTH BALE QUANTITY AND WEIGHT WHEN DETERMINING OVERALL CAPACITY. MAXIMUM
CAPACITY CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED WITH A LOAD THAT HAS BEEN EVENLY DISTRIBUTED ACROSS ALL TINES
AND DOES NOT EXCEED BALE QUANTITIES LISTED.
11
Operation - Round Bales Cont.
FAILURE TO OBEY THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY
When loading a bale, the full length of the spear(s) must penetrate the bales so that a spear does not tear out
a portion of the bale, allowing the bale to fall.
Using the spear(s) for prying, to chain objects to or to lift inorganic objects is dangerous and CAN result in
damage to this product and WILL void all Kifco warranties.
Lifting a bale that exceeds the rated capacity of your prime mover or this attachment CAN result in damage to this product or
personal injury and WILL void all Kifco warranties.
TRANSPORTING BALES

Raise the bale to the minimum height required for the terrain that must be crossed with the bale and keep the bale slightly
rolled back.

Operate the prime mover so that the bale remains close to the ground at all times. Always accelerate, turn and brake very
gradually. Avoid all obstacles, bumps or holes in your path.

Frequently check the bale to make sure it is stable.
DANGER Special Note Regarding the Safe Handling of Round Bales


Improper use of loaders to handle round bales can
result in serious injury or death to the prime mover’s
operator. This could be caused by the bale rolling back
down the loader into the operator’s station.
Do not handle bales that exceed the bale weight limitations of the bale spear or fork, prime mover or loader.

Carry the bale slowly and as low as possible to the
ground.

Operate the hydraulic controls smoothly, avoiding
jerky operation.

Never use the prime mover to stop a rolling bale.

Only use a prime mover equipped with ROPS cab or
rollover protective structure.
12

Travel slowly over rough ground or when making turns

Allow for additional length of bale on prime mover
while turning.

Use particular care when working on inclines and
hillsides.

Always make sure bale spear fully penetrates the bale.
Partial penetration locates all the weight of the bale on
the outer end and can damage spear and will not be
covered under the limited warranty.

In cold weather, a bale frozen to the ground may exceed the lifting capacity of spear. Damage to spear may
occur and will not be covered under the limited warranty.
Operation - Square Bales
Make sure all operators have read all the safety warnings and precautions in this manual and those in the prime mover’s operator’s
manual. Know and obey all Federal, State and local laws and applicable professional guidelines for your operation. Know and follow good work practices when assembling, maintaining, repairing, mounting, removing or operating this equipment. If you are
handling bales with the front end loader and the 3 pt. hitch on the prime mover, always load the 3 pt. attachment first and unload
last.
POSITIONING and LOADING SQUARE BALE(S)
When Spearing on a Slope
Step 1:
Approach Bale w/ Attachment Facing Uphill
Approach the long side of the bale(s) so that the tines will penetrate the lowest bale
slightly below center and so that all tines are centered across the width of the bale.
Do not use this product to transport multiple square bales in a side by side configuration.
Multiple square bales may be transported in a stacked formation where capacity allows.
Step 2: Always spear bales with a slightly downward motion.
Spearing bales with a 5° angle on the tines, and lowering the
boom as the tines are entering the bale will allow the bale to be
dropped off the tines easier. Note: Only handle the type and
quantity of bales that your bale fork was designed to lift!
Step 3: Push the tines into the bale until the bale is against the
frame. Make sure you have penetrated the hay bale far enough
so the bale doesn’t want to come off the end of the tines. If,
when you initially pick the bale up, it tends to droop rearward,
this would indicate you have not penetrated the bale far enough.
Spearing Zone
Step 4: Raise and roll back the bale just high enough to provide ground clearance. The roll back should be performed very carefully and operator should use the minimum amount of roll back necessary to stabilize the load.
FAILURE TO OBEY THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY
Rolling back the bales too far, spearing in the wrong zone or carrying more stacked bales than recommended
could result in the upper bales falling back onto the operator.
When loading a bale, the full length of the tines must penetrate the bales so that a tine does not tear out a
portion of the bale, allowing the bale to fall.
Using the tines for prying, to chain objects to or to lift inorganic objects is dangerous and CAN result in damage to this product
and WILL void all Kifco warranties.
Lifting a bale that exceeds the rated capacity of your prime mover, loader or this attachment CAN result in damage to this product or personal injury and WILL void all Kifco warranties.
TRANSPORTING BALES

Raise the bale(s) to the minimum height required for the terrain that must be crossed with the bale and keep the bale slightly
rolled back.

Operate the prime mover so that the bale remains close to the ground at all times. Always accelerate, turn and brake very
gradually. Avoid all obstacles, bumps or holes in your path.

Frequently check the bale to make sure it is stable.
