The Bale Bed That Dumps
Froman Oil Co is a Cannonball Bed dealer in Northeast Oklahoma. The Cannonball Bale bed is a specialty after-market steel bed manufactured to fit pickup trucks, to aid farmers and ranchers in the feeding process of livestock and the transport of large rounds of hay. The patented dump feature is unique to Cannonball Beds. The same hydraulic components operate both the arm function and the dump bed function, adding considerably to the versatility of this unit. Considered by many to be the ultimate bale bed because of its feature rich design, ruggedly built components, ease of operation and competitive pricing.
Patented Dump Feature
Cannonball’s patented dump feature expands your capabilities to handle hay and dump materials from the comfort of your cab. There is no other unit on the market like it. Our patented feature permits the same hydraulic system to be used for both arm and dump functions. With our feature-rich bed, you gain much more value for our dollar. Arm lift capacity is 2,850 pounds, and bed dump capacity is 6,000 pounds.
Independent Arm Action
Cannonball uses two squeeze cylinders, rather than a phasing cylinder, for better maneuverability. You can move the arms separately or in tandem for easier bale retrieval when stacked end to end. This also helps to load into a ring feeder, even if you don’t have a straight shot at it. Lift any size or shape – round, square, wide, or narrow. You can haul up to four 4′ rounds side by side with a dual wheel pickup. You can also squeeze a large 4′ by 8′ square bale end to end or from the side. Cannonball’s arm range of 3’6″ to 9’6″ enables you to grab small or misshapen items, too.
Free-Float Arm System
The free-float arm system allows you to unroll hay while maintaining full contact with the ground over rough terrain. This function helps to prevent skips and thick blankets of hay, allowing even distribution of feed and reducing waste.
Locking Valve System
Our unique locking valve stops arms from creeping out when carrying hay bales. And, unlike other units on the market, our design significantly limits truck frame stress.
No Need to Jack Trailers
Cannonball makes work easier and quicker in so many ways, especially hooking up your gooseneck trailer. Just raise the bed until the jack stand is off the ground, store the jack, lower the bed, and off you go. No more cranking!
