Balebuster 2100

The 2100 has been an excellent erosion control tool for road sides and mining.

It is a single bale loader machine that provides solutions for:

  • Range feeding
  • Bedding
  • Odor control on wastewater lagoons
  • Bunk feeding
  • Erosion control



The 2100 Balebuster is semi-mounted, making it easy to maneuver and back into tight places. This semi-mounted unit transfers approximately 55% of the 2100’s operating weight directly to the tractor, keeping the weight off the Balebuster.

Heavy Duty Loader

This machine is self-loading, and it only requires one person to operate.

Shredder Chamber

The Shredder Chamber has a 3-chain slatted conveyor that provides the needed traction to handle all round bales: hard or soft core. The chamber is 15% larger than previous models, reducing spillage and making hay and straw placement much easier. It processes hay into usable rations, making your hay go farther and reducing your costs.

Heavy Duty Offset Rotors, Flails & Clearance

This unit’s heavy-duty offset rotor, flails, and reduced flair tip clearance work together to throw straw further and process both dry and wet bales.

Spreads Straw up to 40 Feet

As a primary concern for farmers, preventing accelerated soil erosion and minimizing sedimentation, the 2100 Balebuster is the perfect solution for excellent erosion control.

Wide Spread Caster Wheels

The 2100’s strong caster wheels and large 9.5x14 8-ply tires combine to easily navigate over boggy ground and rough terrain. They also provide additional stability and ease of backing.

Easily Adjustable Deflector

This bale processor is equipped with a variable position deflector that is easily adjustable.
