Bale elevators have been a staple item for many farms around the world since the arrival of electricity. However, these elevators were not widely used until the 1950s. The concept and design have remained the same with having a simple skeletal frame, with a chain that has spiked attachments every so often, which is run by an electric motor. At farmchains.com we realize the importance of bale elevators and their successful operation. The bale elevator chains we supply are manufactured using a steel detachable chain made from hot-rolled strip steel that has been heat-treated. This method of manufacturing increases the strength, durability, and dependability of the chain its self. We typically keep the standard bale elevator chain assemblies in-stock but if you don't see the specific one you need please contact us and we will have it assembled for you within a matter of days. Not only can we supply the chains, but we can also supply the sprockets in cast or steel. Contact us today at 800-648-5429 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
