    All Rata Wrapped Bale Clamps come standard with an equaliser bar to ensure synchronized hand movement. Equaliser bars on Rata Bale Grabs are also greaeable to ensure a long life & avoid the need of replacement bars when pins wear.

    Bale Clamp Features (2)

    3 35mm Pivot Pins
    The hands & arms of the Rata Bale Clamp are secured to the main frame by large 35mm high tensile machine pins. These massive pins are supported by bushes in the frame & arm itself which maximizes the pin's supported area.

    Vertical nudge bars & equaliser bar

    4 Nudge Bars
    Rata Bale Clamps feature vertical nudge bars in which the bale rests along the back frame instead of horizontal bars or plates, the purpose of this is to accommodate the size & shape of any contour bale without wrap damage!


    Stratford farms bale clamp testimonial

    We do about 4,000 individual wrapped bales per year, so its important to us to have Rata softhands to handle them, as they are really reliable, they don't break and are definitely the best brand we've ever used!

    Because we've found Rata gear to be so reliable we also have multiple sets of their Bale Forks & Versatile Grapples as well!

    We've got 2 sets of Rata Bale Clamps that have done 80,000 bales between them, we decided to buy a 3rd set of Rata Bale Clamps because they are strong, reliable & we haven't had problems with the other ones.

    Very happy with all the Rata gear we've got & I'd recommend it to anyone, being strong & reliable for doing big numbers.
