Nobody started this thread yet, so here is what I'm using this year to cut hay.  It showed up recently, haven't take the time to even hookup to the tractor yet.  But by the looks of what is on the ground around it I have a day or two, before I have to worry about getting that done it seems.  :lol:

I picked up a wrapper on the cheap last week, so I'm looking forward to this year and having another tool in the toolboxfor our lovely unpredictable weather these past few years.

This new 2250 MF baler just rolled in. Hope it lasts a long time. Still got the old 4755 if someone is looking for a good used 3x3.

Nice looking machine Tom....I hope it is a problem free machine for you. That is one nice month late Christmas present!

Still got the other bigger paddock to cut in a couple of weeks. Then hope to get 2 more off of both....definitely get 1 more off of both. 

That lot was 3 day hay...which happens rarely here. Despite our heat.  Was over 45c yesterday.......

That kind of heat is deadly. No wonder you made 3 day hay.

NH 312,

 

Both newer models the NH 310 and NH 312 (10' 4'' & 11' 5" cut) were purchased (technology) from another manufacture a couple of years ago. IDR who, but they are presently made (at least mine was) by NH in New Holland,  PA.

With the higher prices we had to offer quite a few people smaller deliveries. And that's a good way to start off a new customer!

Hope this isn’t the way 2020 is going to be. It has rained here every week for quite a while. This is the road into my field now and the water is still rising.

Freezing rain Wed night, rain Thursday switching to snow, snow Friday, snow Saturday. 3 days of ice is starting to stress tree limbs. Finally lost power for half a day yesterday.  Maybe Sunday and/or Monday the ice will melt. I don't think I have seen ice last more than a day.

Looks like the same crap I had up here.  BEFORE the half-day blizzard showed up.  Snowed furiously for several hours and added another 6" plus on top of that crap in your pics, IH 1586.  We also have a bonus of slush and mud that's been under it all for a couple weeks, insulated from freezing by snow cover.  I had to plow.  It was a mess.  Gosh I hate it here!

 

Only positive was we were lucky enough to not lose power.
