    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?

    Hi all I am new to this site and to baling hay. I've recently purchased small farm that has some of the land in hay already and I've decided to try putting up hay myself for our livestock and hopefully some to sell. If all goes well... or even just OK I will look into seeding more acres. One...

    Currently I have a Kr260 Krone round baler I got cheap, net wrap. It works good but makes soft core bales and I would like something a little more reliable. I found a 1745 Massey for 12k and a New Holland BR750 for 13k, why is the massey cheaper when its newer? 1000 bales on the massey, 5000 on...

    I purchased a used string New Holland BR770A baler a few years back. It has auto wrap and command box with it. I have found that each bale the auto wrap does something different. It may wrap string every few minutes, it may go into auto wrap mode and never shut off, it may not trip at all...

    I have an older New Holland BR7060 Crop Cutter Round Baler. The 2M Wide Pickup frame around the feed augers seem to have a large gap and plugs up easily in moist hay. Dry hay does not have a problem, but wet hay get wrapped around the augers. I suspect it is due to this large gap. I have looked...

    I just acquired a 8450 round baler which is the same as a Hesston 550. I got the belts relaced and in the process noticed something with the guides on the front lower belt roller (see photo). There's 2 guides on this roller. One of them is welded to the roller. The second spins free and there's...

    Hello, We've owned a NH 7060 Silage Special for a couple years now (and had a NH 644 for several years before that), and I'm thinking about installing an expeller roll. I ended up buying the kit from the dealer, but after reading through the included directions I still have a few questions...

    I am going to look at a 1995 model Heston 540 round baler tomorrow. I have no experience with round balers and have worked for 1 season haying with a IH square baler that scares me to death. Just a violent thrashing machine... Looking to go to a round baler since the operation just does not...

    I have an oliver 550 diesel (41 pto hp) and am looking to include round baling into my small hay business.
