Whipple Simpson went to a farm show in search of a machine that would unroll his pound round bales of wheat straw so they could be separated into pound rectangular bales. When he couldn't find one, he did the next best thing - he invented one.
Simpson received a patent on his invention, the EZ Unroller, this month. Al Cooper, a farmer near Waynesboro and one of Simpson's first customers, said he had been looking of a way to make the unrolling process faster and less labor-intensive.
Then he saw a magazine article about Simpson's invention. I said, 'son of a gun, that darn machine will work. The quickest and most efficient way to bale hay and straw in the fields is to bale it into huge rounds, he said.

When I designed my first bale unroller back in there were several concerns that I had.
It had to be light, yet strong enough to unroll an pound round bale on pasture without leaving destructive ruts. I wanted minimal tongue weight so that it would be balanced which would allow one person to easily hook it up. It had to be very strong to take the abuse of unrolling an pound bale over rough terrain without breaking down. Finally, since I did not have a tractor, the bale unroller had to be flexible enough to be used with an ATV or pickup.
I still have and use that original bale unroller. This new version is made from new rectangular steel. The tongue is longer which makes it easier to back up to the bale.
The pivot point on the axle is machined to a much tighter tolerance than my first design. The lifting mechanism is a geared boat winch that has been moved back toward the bale to keep it from interfering with the ATV on tight turns. The chains that hold the spike in the bale are heavy duty log chains. Watch the video below to see the Greg Judy Bale Unroller in action!

I just put the third winch hand crank on it. One problem is that you can't stack the bales end to end and still use the buggy. I bought it from the Perry Co. I believe I paid more? Any way, one has to get the bale to the field some how. We used the front loader - I suppose one could drag it if the bale was tight, then you have to get off the Tractor and hook this gizmo to the hitch, pull out the arms to each side of the bale best done with two people and impale the bale with two spikes that fit into the arms, then get back on the tractor after cutting the strings or net and drag the thing.
It does work, but it is labor intensive, and if you don't get the correct rolling direction the first time, it takes forever to get it unrolled, it is best to repeat all this and reverse the direction of the roll, if you really want it all out. I gave up on the thing and bought a Worksaver unroller for the three point hitch Once the bale is on the ground separate from other bales, you back up to it and open the arms hydraulically, grab the bale and lift it up and off you go.

The reason, it seems, is that I never got it right as to how much to unroll at a time. Even when I thought it was skimpy, they left a bunch around as waste. There are ways to put electric wire over the unrolled hay to keep them from stamping on it and well passing their stuff on it - hey, I have enought to do without that extra work. The waste is high with unrolling I am sure, and the waste stays there and slows spring greenup where the waste sits.
I went to cone feeders, that was the topic of another post here. Cone feeders seem, by research, to have the least hay waste, which to me means less wasted dollars. I've been meaning to try this on some low quality hay rolled out on some low quality ground where anything not eaten would just add to the ground.

Just stab bale from the side and use the loader to adjust the height. Could even skip an area then start unrolling again. I think the spike would need to be at a slight forward angle to work. Took the hay spear that was mounted in the truck, dropped the bale, backed up to the side of bale, stabbed a solid rod bar through the center of bale, hooked chains to each end of bar and to the frame of hay spear on truck, start to unroll, bale would hit anthill, turn sideways knock the chain off the bar, Dad would get out cussin, reposition bale hook chain back to rod, start again and then the bale would turn again.
If it was me, I would just put a bale in a hay ring. You know, I just do it with the front tire of my tractor. Cut the wrapping, set the bale down, drive into it with the front tire.
