We are using a JD 4430. Great tractor my brother bought from our uncle. My brother and I drove it the day it was delivered...I was 12 years old. Perfect baling tractor :)

4450, Ford 9030 when needed, and a 3020 when the old girl feels good.

Most of the time I forget the camera at home. I am going to try to improve my memory next time I mow and post some pics.

If you have some pictures of your equipment, operation, hayfields or tractor feel free post it. Thanks:)

I use a 4020. I have thought about using the 4430, but never tried it.

We use either Deere hay equipment or NH. For big rounders I much prefer the Green but for Squares I go with NH.Posted Image

We use a 4430, 4250mfwd, and a 2950mfwd, and a mostly a Farmall 856 on 2 315's with belt throwers and a 316 with a pan. I prefer the INT. due to the T/A and control of ground speed, but love the comfort of the JD's

Hayboy1,

You've got a great gift for taking pictures, my friend. That third shot of the tractor pulling the bale wagon over the top of the hill underneath the clouds... man, that should be a in a frame somewhere!

Chet.

Thanks, but I am the idiot in the tractor sweating!!! My sister took them but yes they came out great. We are fortunate enough to live in an absolutely beautiful part of New England. Kind of take it for granted until sunset!! Thanks again for the compliment

here is the 4250 a little closer up, just pulled those loads nearly a mile on a 13% grade. I had to try it once, won't do it twice!

I use a 4020 JD to pull my IH 8555 inline baler. I have used my 4010 but it has a loader on it and I don't like driving with it and am to lazy to take it off!
