Harper Industries now offers Parallel Squeeze and Pivot Squeeze models in its 600-700 series of DewEze bale beds.
In the patented Parallel Squeeze line, the arms remain parallel to each other as they expand and contract to grab and release bales. This design has been used on bale beds since they were invented in 1984. On Pivot Squeeze models, the arms pivot open and close from 110 to 34 inches wide, giving the operator a wider range of motion for grabbing bales of various sizes. Pivot Squeeze models include swivel spinners, which always remain parallel to the bale for better results when unrolling hay.
DewEze bale beds come with a standard wireless remote on all bale beds powered by their under hood hydraulic kits, allowing the operator to control the functions from inside or outside the truck cab. DewEze also offers several E/H options to power their bale beds, which have an optional wireless remote. Other standard features include dual lift cylinders, a receiver hitch with D-rings, enclosed gooseneck with adjustable hitch placement, solid dummy arms with tie-down hooks, LED lighting, corrosion-resistant Gatorhyde surface, and easy-access rear hydraulic couplers.
Options include a swing light kit, lift bar, extendable arm bed, across-the-bed toolbox, and a side mounted toolbox. Parallel Squeeze models can also be equipped with a synchronized squeeze feature for opening and closing both arms at the same time.
DewEze designs and manufactures all of its own clutch pump kits used to power the bale beds. These belt-driven pumps offer a time-proven design that works independently of the transmission. The hydraulics and electrical systems are covered by a one-year warranty, and the flatbed is backed by a two-year warranty.
“DewEze is the only brand producing a full-line of parallel and pivot squeeze bale beds,” said Tim Penner, president of Harper Industries. “Now everyone can enjoy the proven durability of DewEze bale beds, no matter which style they prefer.”
