Rugged. Durable. Affordable.
Today’s agricultural economy demands smart business decisions. With this in mind, C5 Manufacturing created the Rancher Bale Bed. Built on the same principles of the legendary Chisholm Trail Bale Bed and adhering to the same strict build quality and materials, the Rancher Bale Bed will give you all it has, and then some.
From the C5 Manufacturing Owners
“We get it; we farm too. We understand the need for a quality, economical, entry-level bale bed. We are excited to offer the Rancher Bale Bed and are confident it will give you years of reliable service.”Corey and Ann Cress, C5 Manufacturing Owners
Bale Bed Features
New Power Unit
A new, faster electric over hydraulic power unit is standard with every Rancher Bale Bed. With piloted check valves on each hydraulic circuit and a 22 percent faster pump, the Rancher Bale Bed will move your hay safely and faster than ever before.
Synchronized Arm Cylinders
The Rancher Bale Bed uses phasing arm cylinders to create synchronized arm movement. Unlike the independent arm control of the Chisholm Trail Bale Bed, the Rancher Bale Bed arms go in and out together. It’s a simpler, more economical system.
Free-Float Arm System
The free-float arm system allows you to unroll hay while maintaining full contact with the ground over rough terrain. This function helps to prevent skips and thick blankets of hay, allowing even distribution of feed and reducing waste.
Locking Valve System
The power unit on every Rancher Bale Bed utilizes piloted check valves on all hydraulic circuits, ensuring a safe way to haul and unroll hay.
