For Enos...

Hey folks, I need a little help please.

I am a hay farmer, not a marketing guy so I don't know if I'm out to lunch. A few years ago I submitted a design for a small square baler to a major equipment manufacturer that produces 800 to 1200 bales per hour of 70 pound/18 to 22 flake per bale. This design popped into my head while I was crawling in first gear baling 1st cut timothy. There has been lots of back and forth over the years and we are now at the "If we build it, will they come buy it stage?" So this is where I need your help. I want to sorta prove there is a demand for this type of machine in the forage industry. Is there?
800 to 1200 bales per hour, 100 hp tractor requirement, price tag around $45,000 USD. At least twice the capacity of current commercial 14"x18" balers on the market.

Thanks in advance

the top secret word around here is that mchale is building a twin chamber center line with high capacity mabey not that high but for those of us that do more than 10000 bales a year a faster baler would be a god send cant wait to see what happens next

I dont do near that quantity but would like to see others reply that do. I always like to see the latest on the market. Sounds like a great idea.

WOW, thats fast! I saw a setup once that pulled two balers at once, offset balers running on each side of tractors, looked like a good setup once you got the windrows set....twice as fast. I think there is a market.......if it's quality built, if you gotta stop to work on it....no
