Bale Elevator Chain


Bale elevators have been a staple item for many farms around the world since the arrival of electricity. However, these elevators were not widely used until the 1950s. The concept and design have remained the same with having a simple skeletal frame, with a chain that has spiked attachments every so often, which is run by an electric motor. At USA Roller Chain and Sprockets we realize the importance of bale elevators and their successful operation. The bale elevator chains we supply are manufactured using a steel detachable chain made from hot-rolled strip steel that has been heat-treated. This method of manufacturing increases the strength, durability, and dependability of the chain its self. We typically keep the standard bale elevator chain assemblies in-stock but if you don't see the specific one you need please contact us and we will have it assembled for you within a matter of days. Not only can we supply the chains, but we can also supply the accompanying sprockets in cast or steel, as well as the drive motor, pulleys, and belts (if needed).

Standard Bay Elevator Chain Operation


The typical bale elevator chain utilizes what is commonly known as an HB4 attachment, C1 attachment, or G27 type attachment.

The HB4 attachment is typically a singular chain with this type of attachment that catches the hay bale and then proceeds to carry it upwards. The C1 attachment is typically supplied as a matched and tagged pair of chains and often have slats bolted onto them for even chain loading, they work in conjunction with each other to lift the hay bail. The G27 style attachment uses the same concept as as the C1 style but because of its design the hay bale load is dispersed evenly with the link instead of the top. All three attachment options will pretty much do the same thing but the C1 and G27 style attachment are capable of carrying a higher load. It is important to keep in mind that when adjusting or adding to a bale elevator chain is that a minimum of a 1/2 horse power motor is required for up to 30 feet, and a 3/4 horse power motor is needed if the extension is past 30 feet or if you have an increased incline.
