The Chisholm Trail Bale Beds are a specialty, high end after-market steel flat bed WITH hydraulic bale arms that fit pickup trucks.
All base Chisholm Trail beds come standard as a Non dumping bed with hydraulic bale arms. However unlike the competition, LED lighting, gooseneck hitch, 2″ trailer hitch and wiring, self contained power hydraulic unit with basic hand control, rub rails with stake pockets, bale spinners and 3″ removable side boards are all included in the standard package.
The Chisholm Trail Bale Bed is considered to be the ultimate bale bed because of its feature-rich design, ruggedly built components, ease of operation and competitive pricing.
Chisholm Trail Bale Beds are built to order in the USA by C5 MFG and are now available EXCLUSIVELY in Canada through Canada East Supply and Distribution.
Bale Bed Features
The Chisholm Trail Bale Bed’s optional dump feature expands your capabilities to handle hay and dump materials from the comfort of your cab. There is no other unit on the market like it.
Independent Arm Action
The Chisholm Trail Bale Bed uses squeeze cylinders rather than a phasing cylinder for better squeeze and maneuverability. You can move the arms separately or in tandem for easier bale retrieval when stacked end-to-end. This also helps loading into a ring feeder, even if you do not have a straight shot. Lift any size or shape effortlessly — round, square, wide or narrow. You can haul up to four 4’ rounds side-by-side with a dual wheel pickup. You can also squeeze a large 4’ by 8’ square bale end-to-end or from the side as well as grab small or misshapen items.
Free-Float Arm System
The free-float arm system allows you to unroll hay while maintaining full contact with the ground over rough terrain. This function helps to prevent skips and thick blankets of hay, allowing even distribution of feed and reducing waste.
Locking Valve System
Our unique locking valve stops arms from creeping out when carrying hay bales. Additionally, unlike other units on the market, our design significantly limits truck frame stress.
No Need to Jack Trailers
Chisholm Trail Bale Beds makes work easier and quicker in so many ways, especially hooking up your gooseneck trailer. Just raise the bed until the jack stand is off the ground, store the jack, lower the bed, and off you go. No more cranking!
