  1. The cradles are 119" outside. We never did measure with hay on it
  2. Yes, we have a material breakdown. Since it was for show we used all new components. We have around $6k in the trailer. There are some built in Mexico that are very little more than our material cost. I wouldn't mind using one of them but don't know how long I would want to own it
  3. I do have a video on my phone, not sure if/how to post that. We hauled 10 or so loads before we finished and painted it. We added some rubber bumpers for the cradles to fall against and springs to reset the cradles after dumping.
  4. He copied the gooseneck from my pj gooseneck flatbed. The jacks and axles came from Rockwell American. 8k axles. The trailer weighs 5500, a little heavy but, it should last.
  5. Thanks for all the words of praise/encouragement. This is a ffa project for ffa ag mechanic shows at stock shows. He is at fort worth this weekend. He chose the round bale trailer, with my approval. Since I sponsored/paid for. The plans were the thing that he struggled the most with. We looked at several round bale trailers and then started building. I have built trailers, barns and plenty of stuff. I never learned how to draw. I always built it out of my head. Right or wrong that is how this trailer was built also. He didn't draw the plans until it was done. Small sample of welding 3x4 3/8 wall tubing Thanks again.
  6. Yes, we load from the rear. They don't usually roll very far
  7. Yes. 6 bales per side, they dump together.
  8. This is my middle son's ag mech project for this year. I handle around 3k round bales a year. This should help speed up the process. 12 4x5 bales, hydraulic latches. 184 hours of his time. Super proud of him. Thanks for looking
  9. Here is my 5088 before its fire. Love some 88s.
  10. I have injector lines loose at the pump and have ran the battery down twice trying to bleed it. I am afraid something has happened in the pump.
  11. I changed and blued the fuel filters on my 485. It has fuel to the injection pump, but it is not getting fuel to the injectors. What do I do or look for next?
  12. I am pretty sure the fire started on/in the cab. I was not using the tractor, it had been sitting for a week or so. The baler is a goner also.
  13. My 5088 burned last week. I dont know the cause, but suspect electrical? It had been sitting for a week or so. This was a great tractor just rolled over 7400 hours. Other than tires and a few odds and ends it was cheap to run, never left me with work to do.
  14. Thanks, I replaced damper three years ago. I had ordered seal then but it didn't arrive , and I needed to use tractor. I will check before I reinstall. I will check pump orings as well. Thanks again
