Bought my first round baler
Now that things are up and running and we can see how many bales i was going to be paying custom hire for it was not hard math to do. On the neighbors baler it was going to be 1500 or more bales. At 10 dolllars per bale its not hard math.
First thing i noticed pulling it home was the torsion suspension.50 mph pulled like a dream!
Got the first 60 bales through him yesterday and it went well. Set for 60 inch size the first bale came out at 65. Calibrated it and the next bale was spot on. Set to 71 inch bales and ran!
Just have to figure out how to change net wrap while it was wrapping a bale.
I was thinking you bought a used one.
But nice machine anyways.
I remember my dad one of the first round bailers in the neighborhood. It was a Hesston. I just remember him replacing the belt lacing all the time. And after that he had a JD 430, and a 466. I don't think he ever put new lace in it all on the JD's. I know the 466 he had over 14,000 bales threw it when he sold it.
we will see how it holds up. they use alligator splicing now so hopefully that issue is fixed.
