Enter the bale length (ft), the bale width (ft), and the bale height (ft) into the Bale Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bale Weight. 

Bale Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Bale Weight. 

BALEW = BL * BW * BH * 10.5


  • BALEW is the Bale Weight (pounds)
  • BL is the bale length (ft) 
  • BW is the bale width (ft) 
  • BH is the bale height (ft) 

To calculate the hay bale weight, multiply the length, width, and height of the bale together, then multiply the result by 10.5.

How to Calculate Bale Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bale Weight.

  1. First, determine the bale length (ft).
  2. Next, determine the bale width (ft). 
  3. Next, determine the bale height (ft). 
  4. Next, gather the formula from above = BALEW = BL * BW * BH * 10.5.
  5. Finally, calculate the Bale Weight.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above. 

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bale length (ft) = 3

bale width (ft) = 4

bale height (ft) = 5

BALEW = BL * BW * BH * 10.5 =  ?
