30 Series Hydra Bed

Rugged, Dependable Bale Handling

The original fully integrated bale handler features new design elements with more power and control options.


Feeding is one of the most important daily tasks on nearly every livestock operation. Equipment must perform at full capacity under adverse conditions. Our Hydra Bed® system equips your 3/4 ton or larger truck for ranch and farm use. The flush-mounted, live-hydraulic powered bale handler is totally integrated into the rugged flatbed. Winter feeding, summer hay hauling, year-round trailer towing and many other lifting, hauling and towing tasks are easily accomplished from the comfort and safety of your truck cab. Fingertip hydraulic controls enable you to haul, transport and/or unroll two large round or square bales weighing up to 3,000 lbs. each.



Since 1983, every Hydra Bed® has been built around this rugged foundation consisting of 6” channel frame long sills and our proven bale handling assembly which features a 1/2” wall rear cross tube rotating on (2) 6” hinge assemblies. These components all work together to provide the structural integrity essential to dependable lifting, hauling and towing. Our dedicated production staff takes great pride in the quality workmanship with which they build this simple, strong, time-tested design.

"There is no way you could take the Hydra Bed® away if I couldn't get another. I use it every day for something. I feed bales, move feed bunks, move my creep feeder, hang gates, and pull posts. Well, you take my Hydra Bed® and I will for darn sure quit farming."

Eugene F. Kramer - Kansas

"We love our Hydra Bed®! It is the best investment we have ever made. You make a product to be proud of!"
