Kuhns MFG

Kuhns Mfg is a close-knit family business, with several family members in key positions in the company. Kuhns Mfg has been providing quality square bale handling products to hay growers around the world for over 18 years. Although Kuhns has developed new models and innovated many new features, they remain true to their original pioneering design principles.


  • 8 models – 4 to 18 bale systems for all needs
  • Fully automated. No hydraulics or electronics
  • Gently carried bales stay clean & intact
  • High capacity to handle any baler output

AccumulatorsThe Kuhns Hay Accumulator system uses gravity and a simple mechanical system to efficiently arrange small square bales into a group.

Unlike other bale accumulators, it uses no hydraulics, electronics, or chains. Using excess energy from the baler plunger, the bales are pushed up and out the top of the chute. As the bales slide down the accumulator bed, the last bale in each row swings a gate to open the next row. The last bale in the group opens the back gate. As the accumulator unloads itself, springs and counterweights automatically return all of the gates back to their starting position, ready for the next bale.




  • 7 Models 8 to 18 bales
  • Tied grabs make for safer and faster loading and stacking
  • Save time securing loads for transportation
  • Can be used with any brand of hay accumulator

Tie-GrabberThe KN618 picks up the bales 6 wide and 3 long on edge using 36 teeth on 6 bars. The operator approaches the bale group with a strand of twine already stretched across the back plate of the Tie-Grabber. The hydraulic squeeze bar ensures the group is packed tightly together before the teeth are set. After the teeth are set, the arm completes the rotation around the group and the knotter ties the twine tight, ensuring stable transportation to storage. The KN618 handles 14×18” bales 32″- 36″ long with no adjustments. If you want your bales longer than 36″, an extended version of this model is available.




  • 8 Models 8 to 18 bales
  • Can be used with any brand of hay accumulator
  • Durable frame made from 3/16” tubing
  • Maintenance free design uses UHMW bushings that don’t require greasing
  • Easy to replace worn/damaged hooks

GrabbersA Kuhns grabber or Tie-Grabber mounted on a front end loader or skid steer can pick up the bales and load them onto a waiting truck or wagon. The packs can then be stacked in the barn with a grabber. Without the operator ever needing to touch a bale.



Kuhns Mfg Design Philosophy

The best solutions to complex problems are the simple ones. As long as that simplicity gets results. Dependable equipment repeats these results time and time again, without error. The Kuhns Hay Accumulator system blends simplicity, efficiency, and dependability into a truly exceptional small square bale handling solution. Even though we strive to keep things simple, we still have multiple patents that help ensure Kuhns equipment gets the job done right. Our eight different models give you the ability to optimize bale handling capacity for your specific farm operation.

Our square bale handling system eliminates the need for manual bale handling. This significantly reduces the impact on the back, joints and overall bodies of the valued people in your haying operation. With the time you save compared to manually handling bales, you can spend that time on other areas of the farm and with your family.
