McHale R5

McHale R5

The McHale R5 is ideal for transporting bales which have been tipped on their ends in the field. It can also be used to collect bales after wrapping and rotate them through 90 degrees and stack them on their ends, so that they hold their shape better.

Close Proximity to Loader Carriage

The R5 Handler is designed to keep the bale as close as possible to the loader carriage. This gives better control, stability and balance when dealing with even the heaviest of bales.

Bale Hand Design

The bale hands are designed so that they cradle the bale without damaging the plastic. The hands are slim in design, allowing them to slip between two closely stacked bales.

Lockable Arms & Consistent Grip

Either of the bale hands can be locked in position, allowing the unlocked arm to do all the movement. This gives the operator more control in confined spaces. A heavy duty ram complete with check valve ensures a consistent grip as the bale is being transported.


McHale’s core business focuses on the creation of high output balers and bale wrappers for the production of baled silage, haylage, hay and straw.
