ikon-selectofixQuadrogrip is the best implement on the market for handling wrapped square and round bales. The implement arms are seated on 350 mm wide, extremely stable sliding plates, which move along the main frame. When stacking, it is possible to lock either the right or left arm, which makes for easier work.

The sliding rails are replaceable and made of high-quality polyethylene, which does not require lubrication. This results in reduced friction, almost silent arm movements, minimal wear and a long service life.

ikon-selectofixThe implement arms are housed in powerful hinged points with replaceable bushings. Both the right or left arm can be locked independently, but there is still some mobility, making it possible to stack the bales tightly without damaging the plastic. In addition, the implement arms are designed so that it is easy to reverse out from the bale, and this is also an advantage when the bales are to be stacked tightly.

The uniquely curved, rounded shape together with the 90 mm thick tubes contribute greatly to the very careful handling of both vertical and horizontal bales. Note in particular the long, curved tubes, curved in one piece with no sharp edges or welded joints. The upper tube extension is a Quicke specialty that provides significantly better support when the bales are handled horizontally.

ikon-selectofixThe Quicke Flexibal, often replicated, never equaled. This implement is by far the most popular way of handling round bales with thousands of them across Ireland.

For 2016 the 125 mm thick, rotating steel tubes have been reduced 89mm to allow bales to be more easily stacked. The tubes are mounted on two powerful stone fork tines which are hydraulically adjustable sideways. When the bale is handled, the steel tubes roll carefully in under the bale. The tubes’ generous length and diameter distribute the pressure evenly over the bale. When straw or hay bales are to be transported, the steel tubes can be dismantled quickly and easily.

With the tubes removed, Flexibal can also be used for pallet handling (max. 1,000 kg). As an option, Flexibal can be equipped with an adjustable bale support that is installed on the back of the implement. This provides the potential to either handle larger bales or to stack bales on their ends.

The new Topgrip, known as Elephant Trunk in Ireland, proposes a unique way of handling round or square bales. The arm extends over the bale and clamps the bale towards the back frame to pull the bale away from the stack. This is a unique action that is perfect for the customer who re-handles wrapped square or round bales that are stacked closely together. The arm lifts the bale using the bale’s weight instead of extreme hydraulic force to prevent any damage to the back of the bale. The arm is rounded without welding to reduce any sharp edges that could rip plastic.

ikon-selectofixUnigrip has a tried and tested design with a low net weight. It carries out the same tasks as Flexigrip. The choice between these two implements depends on individual preference and work routine. Unigrip is also well suited for smaller square bales (80 x 80 – 130-160 cm). The implement arms distribute the pressure evenly over a large area, and this ensures careful handling of bales.

Large diameter tubes are at the core of the Unigrip which aids in ease of bale handling and no sharp edges ensure bale damage is avoided.

Bale Spike

The bale spike is particularly well suited to handling round bales. The longer tine ensures safe transport of the bale. The shorter tine prevents the bale from wobbling and rotating during stacking.

Square Bale Fork – Safety

The Square Bale Fork’s folding box section is a new and valuable safety detail. Firstly you can lock the tines in the upright position, increasing safety during transport, particularly on public roads. Secondly you get more efficient and safer handling. When unloading, the bales are pushed into place by the main frame. If unloading takes place at full height, the top bale is pushed into place with the aid of the upper section of the implement, without the long tines being pressed down into the bales. As a result, there is no risk of the bales falling back when you reverse.

Until now, splitting bales has entailed hard work or considerable expense. If you have a loader with dual-action lifting cylinders, you can solve the problem thanks to Silosplit.

Silosplit can both transport and split bales. When you have placed the bale where it is to be split, you place the blade across the top of the bale and press down. Both straw and silage bales fall apart in two pieces, simply and smoothly without complicated extra hydraulics. It is then easy to handle the material. Silosplit is supplied with an easy-to-use blade guard to provide protection from the sharp cutting edge. Silosplit is a patented Quicke Original implement design.

Square Bale Fork – Standard

The Square Bale Fork is a simple, robust implement for both round and square bales. The tines in the box section can be installed with a separation of 80 or 130 cm. As an optional extra, the fork can be supplied with a U-shaped vertical rear extension, which helps to support the top bale.
