I think that knotters were used all the way back in the horse drawn grain binder days. Even more of a miracle when you think of that.

To get a better understanding just cut the tractor off and get someone to roll the fly wheel, Trip the baler and you can watch it tie in slow motion.
Agree. This is really the only way to see whats happening if your missing a knot for less than obvious reasons.

When the metering wheel reaches the desired setting for bale length the knotter clutch will then be engage again and this sends a second set of twin into the twin disk which are wrapped around the front of the bale. This second set of twin is held into the disk with the twin holder. Now you have two strands of twin in each knotter. At the same time the twine fingers which are laying flat against the deck underneath the knotters slide across the deck and pull the twin in the way of the rotating bill hook which with jaws open grabs both strands of twin that are in the twin disk, then the knife arm swings across and rubs the bottom edge of the bill hook and wipes the loop of twin off the bill hook because when the bill hook rotated it wrapped a double loop of twin around itself while also grabbing the ends of the twin that are in the twin disk. While the knife arm wraps this loop off the bill hook the jaws of the hook hold the ends while the loop is slide over the bill hook, this essentially creats the knot by having the effect of pulling two ends of twin through a loop. At the tail end of the knife arm is the twin knife that will cut off the two ends free from the twine disk and the pressure of the bale pulls the knot free and forms a simple double looped knot. Massey Ferguson had a different type of knotter I remember that when I had my MF 124 baler years ago. But this description is your basic McCormick knotter.
