I never draw up anything until after I get done also. Only draw up some of the time if I know it's something I will make more of later

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.

Great JOB!! I hated school so bad that my ag classes were about all that kept me in school.

Does he have a breakdown for price of materials? I would like to build one of those, just not sure if I can afford my own labor.

Nice.  I don't know much about round bales. Slide in from back and side dump? (They ever roll far away?) 

Yes I made a trailer similar to that but just one run of bales first time I dumped it wasn’t thinking 5 rolls went through my fence , flattening it . Your trailer looks good by the way.

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

Do you need a loader tractor to load it or can you get there with a spear on a three point?

One they have here is too high.  I always thought it would be neat to make one self load like alot of round bale movers for tractors, but instead of pushing them off the rear, have it tip to unload them all quick on the side.
