  • Ferris Wheel Square Bale Loader
  • All,
    I just acquired a Ferris Wheel Bale Loader. I know it's not Ford related (directly), however, I've baled 800+ squares with my 8n/501 sickle mower/tedder combo and 8n (with Howard) coupled to my MF 12 Baler.

    I also use my 01' F350 to pick up bales. I know this is a long shot, but if anyone has literature on my Ferris Wheel Bale Loader, I would be willing to purchase them.

    I found one person on Ebay who has a brochure, but a manual would be nice.

    Off topic, I have my Rear Manure Loader is the hydraulic for it.

  • Hi Israel. I could not find a manual, but did find a YouTube video that will show others here what you are talking about - sure beats heaving them on the wagon by hand!

  • That is great! We used to drag an old wooden gate on the ground. One person riding the gate with two bale hooks snagged them and pulled them right onto the gate. Worked pretty good also.

  • Ed,
    Yeah, I've been studying that video for a while now. I've found a seller on eBay that has a 4 page brochure on the exact model I have, but having trouble getting him to respond to my requests (after he said he relisted the item).

    My thoughts were, if someone in the Kansas area knew of the owner, or dealer of this loader, I would buy any literature I could find. When I compile that data (even if I have to do it all myself via reverse engineering)...I will share with this site.

    I took the one and only old Delco shock off of it and decoded that it was made in 1956.
