Arcusin Forstack FRS12 bale chaser: Perhaps four is the magic number

The Forstack, does just that ... stack four square bales and then deposits them at the edge of the field. The system has its advantages and disadvantages, as we found out in our season-long test.

Gathering up straw bales can be a time-consuming task at a busy time of year ... and even more so if the bales are dotted across the field and not grouped for speedier clearance. Spanish machinery maker Arcusin’s answer to this is the Forstack FRS bale chaser, of which there are two versions: the FRS8 for 80cm wide bales and the FRS12 for 120cm packs.
