    Best Round bale silage stacker ?

    I'm thinking of buying two round bale stackers, one for me one for my neighbour. What are the owners opinions of the various makes. It'll probably end up a choice between nugent, fleming, mc hale etc. On such a simple machine price will be similar but no doubt users will have opinions I'd like to hear based on their experience.These sort of things:

    They will be going onto material handlers so strength is preferable over the light weight advantage for a tractor mount.

    I've had a Nugent bale grab for 10 yrs. Mounted on a JD loader via Euro brackets. Stack about 500 bales a year, followed by feeding cattle and loading customers trailers with it. Load all sorts of trailers from car to 40' and occasionally dump bales into round feeders. It has given faultless performance. Lifts bales any which way, including any misshapen or sagged bales. Also managed big squares one year but it'll only lift them narrowways. Only gripe I had .. it didn't come with bolt on brackets ( I used McHale ones ). One of my customers has a Flemming, he was never done welding the cross bar that links the two arms, although to be fair it wasn't new when he bought it so it may have been abused a bit.

    ETC
