>Hay Stack Adventures
Some of you are wondering why I wrote Hay Stack instead of Haystack.
Well, this is an adventure in Stacking Hay.
We’re going to order a big stack of Grass Hay to feed our
eating machines Horses, so Mrs. Geezer went over to watch them deliver to our neighbor. She wanted to see how much room we needed and how big the stack was going to be.
They pick it up with a truck and lay it down on it’s back to transport it.
The stack is 2 bales wide by 5 bales deep by Nine Bales High. We’re talking Ninety Bales
When they deliver it, they tip it back up and set it on the ground.
My neighbor had put down some pallets to keep the hay off the ground (for moisture).
The Hay Guy warned us that the pallets would be crushed by the big forks of the machine.
The first stack was leaning a little bit, because of the broken pallets. They braced it with a panel and some 2×4’s.
When the second stack was put in place, it pushed the first stack enough to make it tip over.
My back hurts just thinking about all the work to be done, re-stacking all those bales.
I think it’s about 3.5 tons.
Yep, that’s about 7000 pounds.
