JD vs NH round balers
Posted 19 November 2010 - 08:18 PM
I am in the process of finalizing a decision on which round baler to purchase. Because of sales and service options in my area, I have narrowed it down to four models and two manufacturers: John Deere and New Holland.
I am thinking of the silage options of both manufacturers and two sizing options namely NH BR7060/BR7070 Silage Special and JD 458/468 Silage Special. JD seems to be quite popular around here and am leaning towards it because my neighbor has one and we can exchange equipment (balers) without using each other tractors or having to rewire everything ie monitors etc would be the same. We do this now with the small square baler NH 575 and he or I can just go to each others sheds and hook up and go as long as it is available.
That being said, this should not be the only or primary reason to buy a baler so could someone please give me some insight as to these models. I have a beef farm and have just put up silage pits so the Silage feature is a "just in case" or if I have some custom work to do. It will be mostly for dry hay and the 72" option is for the convenience of having a larger bale so I have to feed less often. If I decide to sell some hay I could always do those at 48".
As much info as possible would be appreciated and thanks in advance for your help
