The introduction of large square hay packages in the ‘80s provided producers the ability to mechanically harvest, handle, stack and transport bales efficiently. For nearly 2 decades, many of our customers have utilized their
Hydra BedÒ systems to load and transport these large square bales. In most ranch situations, range feeding of these "big squares" has been a 2-person task, typically requiring a driver and someone on the truck bed to separate and drop individual flakes off to the cattle.

Triple C, Inc. developed the Hydra FLKRä (patent pending) specifically to safely and efficiently accomplish feeding square bales with a single operator, greatly reducing costs and risk of injury to personnel. After square bales are loaded utilizing the proven power and dependability of the Hydra BedÒ, the Hydra FLKRä separates flakes from each bale, the flaker drops them onto the ground or feed aprons as well as into bunks, hay rings or tire feeders. The operator controls the rate at which each bale is processed by the flaker.

To minimize leaf loss, flake separation is accomplished utilizing an innovative retracting finger mechanism. The hydraulic ramping function helps control premature flake drop and the bale advance design provides incremental feeding rates at the operator’s discretion. The flaker is powered by the Hydra BedÒ system hydraulics and controlled from the driver’s seat. The Hydra FLKRä is easily and quickly installed on most Hydra BedÒ models and can be removed in minutes when feeding season is completed.
