Bale King 5225



The 5225 features an integrated 100-bushel grain tank for top-dressing processed hay in a windrow, or bunk feeder. The tank is safe and easy to fill with a hydraulically actuated lid, built-in ladder and platform, and large opening.

The 5225 is perfect for ensuring a balanced diet during winter feeding and is designed with winter use in mind. Twin Torflex axles give a smoother ride and improved stability over uneven frozen ground. Rear discharging auger.

Like all Bale King processors, the 5225 features the X-Rotor for easy twine removal, 3/4″ welded steel flails, heavy-duty bale forks, and abrasion-resistant powder coat paint.

Standard Features

A B C - BK5225

A) The Bale King 5225 features heavy-duty adjustable forks.The advantage of straight tip forks is they don’t skew a bale sideways when backing under a bale.

B) Hydraulically-driven augers can deposit grain from the tank directly onto the processed windrow or into the bunk feeder. Built-in auger hydraulic flow control allows greater flexibility. Like the 5200TR, the auger can be run independently of the rotor. Right-hand discharge puts the action on the same side as your controls, reducing operator fatigue.

C) Twin Torflex axles offer a better ride over uneven ground. 12-16.5 12-ply tires offer good flotation on wet ground.

D E F - BK5225

D) Anti-slip textured platform allows easy and safe inspection/cleaning of the grain tank in poor weather conditions.

E) Sturdy handrail provides an extra measure of safety when mounting and dismounting the platform, especially in muddy or wet weather.

F) Retractable ladder is easily deployed and stowed for better ground clearance.

G H I - BK5225

G) Hydraulic lid cylinder saves your time, effort, and your back.

H) Large tank opening makes filling and cleaning a breeze.


I) All Bale King Processors come standard with super-durable powder-coat paint intended to withstand years of service.

J K L - BK5225

J) Our patented X-Rotor design with heavy-duty 3/4″ welded flails makes twine removal a breeze. Instead of wrapping tightly like on a round rotor, twine forms a pocket on the X-Rotor into which the provided cutter can be placed to easily cut it from behind. Knives and electric irons can also be used. All X-Rotors are made of laser-cut steel and are harmonically balanced for smooth operation before leaving our door.

K) Quick-adjust hoop grate allows excellent control over processing aggressiveness. Our hoop grates are 3/4″ plate steel and designed to endure hard impact.

L) Agitators with high-torque motors give you excellent control when processing stubborn bales.
