    I have a John Deere 4066R tractor that has engine HP 65.9 and PTO HP 52. I am looking to purchase a round baler. The hayfields have a gradual slope (not steep). Elevation of ground is close to sea level so there should not be a reduction in HP. I have looked at 4x4 and 4x5 round balers. The...

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience working on a 605K Vermeer. We have put new belts on the baler and cannot get the belts to tighten up. We have put air in the air bags, adjusted the tense on the baler but no luck. The belts are cut to length from the factory so it shouldn’t be a...

    Bought a used case ih 8435 silage special round baler, was wondering if anyone has one that could help us find parts? Seems no one has any? Also does this baler have a Heston or new holland baler that parts can interchange with?

    My baler will not make a good dense bale. Last year it worked fine. The green gauge on the front is not moving at all. It looks like there is some oil showing in it so Is it supposed to show oil in it? Does anyone know what the pressure (PSI) should be? The gauge only has a +/- no pressure...

    We are trying to get our hay in and of course the Baler is not cooperating. It is making shaggy bales and baler is throwing hay out the top. We have never seen it do this. Any ideas? I have attached a pic of a bale

    Hey Farmers, We have an older JD 335 round baler that has worked fantastic over the years (knock on wood). Only issue is the feed clogs up when there is the tiniest bit of moisture on the hay. So there's no baling hay after 5pm here in the Appalachian mountains. I've talked to others that...

    I am looking for a round baler. Have found a couple or JD 430 locally. I am just getting started and this is all I can afford. So what do people think. Good baler or not so good. What should I look for when looking at the 2 used balers I am going to see? Are parts still avaliable? Easy to run...
