Build A Pine Straw Hand Baler That Can Work For Hay

If you have a lot of pine trees on your land or somewhere you can collect the pine straw, here are plans to build a hand baler so you can make bales out of the pine straw. Landscapers use a lot of it so you could probably sell it. You can also use this baler to bale hay.

Build A Pine Straw Hand Baler That Can Work For Hay

Oak Hill Homestead says they cut and bale their own hay since they don’t have a tractor and they built and use this baler for their hay and mixed cut grasses so I guess if you grow hay for you animals you could use it as well. This could go places that big machinery couldn’t and I am sure it would cost a lot less that buying machines to bale. They provide a few different links to plans for a baler. Some are made like the one in the picture and there are others that are built to work horizontally. If you have hay or pine straw¬† that you would like to bale with out an expensive piece of machinery this may work for you.
