Moving large, round bales can be hazardous duty. Use the following rules to stay safe when moving round bales with a tractor and loader:

  • Do not overfill the loader.
  • Transport the load as low as possible to avoid overturning.
  • Move and turn the tractor at low speeds.
  • Set wheels to the widest setting possible to increase tractor stability.
  • Never transport or lift anyone on the loader or its attachments.
  • Raise and lower loads gradually.
  • Operate the loader from the operator’s seat only.
  • Never let anyone walk under a loaded front-end loader.
  • Always level the loader bucket as the load is lifted to help prevent the load from rolling onto the operator.
