Build a Hay Cart Plans

These plans are for a simple cart for moving single hay bales.

Farmers, poultrymen and feed dealers who have occasion to transport individual bales of hay or straw will have regular use for this unusual bale cart. It straddles the bale and carries it suspended in a welded frame in a manner similar to a lift truck.

The method of loading the bale is pictured in Fig. 1, and construction details and dimensions of the cart are given in Fig. 2. Note that the complete frame is made from 3/4-in. pipe with all joints welded and that it consists of two similar frames, one above the other with pipe spacers welded between. The cart straddles the bale when loading.
