This is a screen shot of a local CL ad selling hay. Great picture of the baler!

I would think he might be making 20lb bales.  The rounds look fairly soft as well.  We deal with farms all the time that have the price per bale stuck in the 80's  A lot of people don't even realize bales can be a a different weight and length.  In fact I have run into one customer who complained that my bales are too heavy!

The first thing I noticed is the belt is split.

Second thing I noticed is the square hay just might be cheaper than the rounds.

I thought that as well but thought surely someone didn't do that. Maybe I shouldn't have been so quick to dismiss it.

My Super 77 New Holland out back in the weeds has individual belts on it. Dad says it is that way from factory
