Bale King 5100


The Bale King 5200 and 5100 are our most popular models. They incorporate the best features from our Bale King bale processor line into one complete package. The 5200 is the new and improved 5100 available in 2017. It is the product of more than a decade of refinement by our engineers in consultation with farmers from all over North America.

The 5200 easily handles two 6′ round bales at once. The 5200 is built to survive years of hard use in harsh Canadian Winters and to breeze through mud in Spring with it’s big flotation tires.

The frustration of twine removal is vastly mitigated by the X-Rotor’s patented design, which allows easy insertion of the provided twine cutter (or any other cutting tool) into the rotor’s gap to allow cutting from behind. The X-Rotor features heavy-duty 3/4″ thick welded flails and can throw straw farther than you might think possible: up to 60′!

Want to feed another 40 bushels in every trip? Upgrade to the Bale King 5200TR with the Total Ration Kit to gain a bolt-on grain tank and hydraulic auger!

Standard Features

5100 Top View
A) Newly designed, more aggressive beaters with bigger, sharper teeth bite into the bale. Our new beaters even keep old, out of round bales turning for more uniform feeding into the rotor, resulting in more complete and consistent processing.

B) X-Rotor blows more air for significantly improved bunk feeding and spreading (up to 60 feet!). The X-rotor also simplifies twine removal. The twine cutter is standard equipment.

C) Upper side shields are curved in and keep the bale contained during processing.

5100 Rear View
D) The rear loading fork is adjustable to accommodate various bale sizes. Pointed forks allow more flexibility when picking up bales. They can be driven into hard ground under the bale if necessary.

E) Standard 16.5L flotation tires help navigation through severe terrain and give the operator a smoother ride.

C) Upper side shields are curved in and keep the bale contained during processing.

F) More powerful hydraulic motors on the beaters handles the largest bales. Comes with hydraulic relief protection system. Right hand discharge is standard. The integrated gearbox is durable, and allows for efficient and smooth transition of power from the tractor to the processor.

H) New 4-way-adjustable hydraulic deflector chute. The chute adjusts up and down as well as in and out. Switch from bunk feeding mode to long-distance straw throwing without leaving the cab!

Upgrade Options and Kits

5100 Fine Chop
Fine Chop Kit – The Fine Chop Kit is an option available when ordering your 5200 processor and adds the adjustable ability to chop material even finer!

The kit adds a row of adjustable-height knives which protrude into the rotor chamber for exceptional control of processor aggressiveness.

The Fine Chop Kit is highly desirable when processing long greenfeed or silage. Need to process straw? Dropping the knives to their lowest level (no tools required!) returns the processor to the stock setting.

The Fine Chop Kit can be installed by the user or can be installed to order. Contact Bridgeview for more information.


5100 Total Ration
Total Ration Kit – Upgrade your 5200 to the 5200TR to feed an extra 40 bushels in every trip!

The Total Ration Kit is a bolt-on accessory that adds a 40-bushel grain tank to the 5200. The hydraulic auger can feed grain directly onto the processed windrow or into the bunk feeder. The tank auger can be run independently of the processor and flow control allows easy ration adjustment.

The left-side axle extension provided with the Total Ration Kit gives improved stability with a full grain tank while adding only 8″ in overall width. The Total Ration Kit is built with winter use in mind. The low-height lid is easily opened while while wearing thick gloves for inspection. Gas-shock assist keeps the lid open for easy filling.

The Total Ration Kit can be easily installed with basic tools. It can be factory installed on request.
