Is the hay too tough (wet)?

 

Or too dry perhaps?

 

1st time happening (has it worked for you before)?

 

Have you tried feeding it slower/faster?

IMHO duplication of threads makes replying more complicated.

 

What is moisture% of hay you're attempting to bale? Have you checked that all chains are in place & snug? Are many pickup teeth missing/broken?

The hay wasn't to dry in my opinion but it's some really fine hay. I slowed it down it appears to help but I'm doing at a snail's pace. I was told some bakers have a hard to prevent this type of thing but the 450 does not have a guard.

My pick up teeth are all there even though some seem to be weaker than others

Is a guard available for your baler?

 

If so what's the manual say about it's usage?

 

What type of hay are you attempting to bale (I'm guessing grass, but some are more slippery than others)?

 

I've never baled without a guard, so I might not be much use to you.  :(

This particular baler does not have a guard. The grass is very fine in texture.
