Bale clamp with a large clamping range (BKGK)

The bale clamps from Kemp are made for moving and picking up bales. These bale clamps are ideal for picking up rectangular bales, but it is also possible to transport round bales. The bale grabbers have two sliding tubes per clamping arm, so four in total. These four sliding tubes ensure that the force is distributed over the entire height of the clamp. This allows us to keep the clamps slim/narrow, which allows passage between close-lying bales.


The bale clamp with a large clamping range, has a range of 700 to 2,700 mm. Due to this large range, this bale clamp is suitable for small bales but also large hay or straw bales, and for bundle bales too. The BKGK is a clamp that is made on request, which means that it has many possibilities. You can find these possibilities under the heading options.

The bale clamp with a large clamping range is available with the attachments that belong to your vehicle (for the attachment parts, see the document: Kemp attachment parts).

For additional specifications, see the document: product specifications.


Extension brackets fixed: It is possible to make the brackets two meters long, so that you can clamp more bales at the same time.

Removable extension brackets: In addition to the fixed extension brackets (welded), it is also possible to order removable extension brackets.

Raised brackets: The clamps can be raised, which allow you to pick up more bales on top of each other.

Demountable middle bracket: An additional clamping bracket can be placed in the middle of the clamp. This allows you to move many small bales, because both the left and right of the clamping bracket can be clamped.

Pilot operating non return valve: Needed at open centre and internal leakage control valve. Duo to the open centre, the oil can’t be blocked and the clamp can’t stay in one position. The pilot operating non return valve, takes over this function by blocking the oil flow, allowing the bale clamp to stay in one position.

Pressure relief valve: At a working pressure above 225 bar, then install an pressure relief valve.

Synchronous valve: The synchronous valve ensures that both clamping arms go in and out at the same time.

Removable rack for 2nd bale: The bale clamp has the possibility for a rack, so several bales can be transported simultaneously.

Bale spear: This ball spear allows you to remove the foil / rope & net from the bale. For more information look at the product page of the ball spear.
