I saw a couple of these in Italy, one old guy stopped and showed me round his which was similar to this one, a Valpadana, i was very impressed with it, i had seen the walk behinds many times but never the truck thing, very innovative i thought.

They are a neat machine! They areimported to the states. There are implements available to perform any task one might wish to do.

The italinans have perfected their use in hilly country where operation of any other type of machine would be unsafe. I have seen videos of them being used on hills so steep a man could barely stand? I'll include this link since i'm amazed at the attatchments available for them.

Never seen one like that. Pretty neat little rig. Wonder how much they could haul in the box?

Here is another one, seems a fair heavy load on it and handled it very well up those hills, my guess is you could have it dripping over the sides and it would still be happy..but then that would be abusing the poor thing, best to run light and often :)

Caron incidently make some very neat machinery.

 

JD yes incredibly low COG, stick some duals or triples on and you can cut hay as steep as you fear to go, then turn it, bale it etc.

According to their website, the cart is rated for 850 lbs.

 

I can't get over the mini round baler.

 

The view of the countryside in that video at the 2:45 mark is impressive.

Same here.  Wouldn't that be cool as a pull type?

The same company that makes that baler, does make a pull type version of the baler. I have been checking them out to pull on my hills with my Ford 1500. They say it takes 18 PTO Hp and I have 17. Two things holding me back are the price and doing market research to determne that there would be a market for bales that size.  On 8.9 acres, I have not yet calculatd the Break Even.

There is another company(Star Equipment I think) that also sells a mini Round and a mini Square baler. The Square is a couple Thousnad higher.
