Mark Vance made this round bale unroller using his Lincoln® SP-175 Plus wire feeder welder using the MIG welding process. He plans to use the device to unroll large round bales of hay to feed cattle. Since the summer was very dry and hay is in short supply, Mark hopes to minimize waste by unrolling just what he needs instead of setting out the whole bale in a round feeder and letting the cattle eat all they want.
