I have a JD 566 round baler that is as clean as they come. It has 2600 bales through it but no net wrap. I want net wrap.I I am considering upgrading to a 4x6 baler. JD 467 and 468 are on my list. I have a NH dealer close also. What about a BR 7070 NH? Some of the locals traded JD's on NH round balers in the past several years and some have stayed with NH and some went back to JD. I am not trying to start a JD vs NH post but would like to hear some thoughts on both brands.

Searching this site reveals tha people pretty much like what they have. Each brand seems to have its followers and no real rock throwing at any of them. I can tell you I have more concerns about the NH than the JD. I just want to make sure I do my homework befoer pulling the trigger. I have a perfectly good baler now and dont want to buy a headache.

Concerns about NH are:
Net wrap in the front(ease of changing roll, lots of moving parts for net to tangle in)
Tightness of bales
Choking of baler( Have never choked a JD,been through this with Vermeer)
Changing crop conditions and baler handling it with no problems(changing from grass to straw or crop stubble)
Design seems complicated

I didn't hear a lot of good about the BR balers. I decided on a 648 sileage special with bale command plus.
I heard they were great balers and NH had "perfected" that line of balers before they switched to the BR series.
I liked the Deeres better, too, but couldn't afford the extra 25% most dealers charge for them.
I don't think you'll go wrong with either. I kind of like the fact that the NH balers are made right near me in New Holland, PA. They're very common & plentiful in this area.
