Walter Cutting Hay with a Chainsaw
We buy hay since our fields are more amenable to pasture due to their slope and outcroppings of rocks. Most of the hay we buy is in the form of large round bales which are less expensive by the pound than the small square bales. I use the tractor to move the round bales around. In this case the bale was in a place I could not safely get to with the tractor. My simple solution was to reduce the 800 lb bale to smaller, more manageable chunks. A chainsaw works admirably for this task. Just watch out for all the flying flecks!
