I just recently acquired a New Holland 658 auto wrap baler. When i got it home and checked everything out and kicked the PTO on, the right side of the pickup seems to be flexing/bouncing and the left side not so much. I know the previous owner did mention something about the pickup was needing work, but I can't remember the details. My question is, are these pickups prone to having issues, is it possible for the frame to be cracked and just need to be braced and rewelded (will this even be a good option), or should i just look for a new pickup assembly? I'd like to not put thousands into a baler only worth a few thousand, but at the same time, if it needs fixed then i also want to make sure it is done right and ready to bale when i need it.
Also, i'm new to these balers and have no experience with them. Any additional info or help with this baler would be appreciated.
