I thought it was an interesting comparison and like all of us in the hay business you got to use what works best for your operation. Both machines have their pluses and minuses.
Speaking from experience and reading the comments from his YouTube page the biggest thing will come down to moisture levels and how it’s handled. We have a Baron but also kept our Kuhn system. We can start baling early with the old system , we then can figure who that will go to at a later time it’s just “ get er done” and in the barn with weather coming. The Kuhn bales are less tight better air movements.He’s right 15 percent on your moisture meter is about all you dare go plus we add 4 points on what our baler says when putting it through the baron. We don’t even have an automatic opinion on the spray ,every bale gets preserve . I don’t care if it’s cost me 25 cents a bale or 40 cents a bale of preserve a crappie dusty bale is worth nothing.
I wonder if he just might keep one of the other units around for those not so good drying days.
I think his biggest concern was bundling and truck loading and for this the baron's bundle is tighter and hold 21 bales vs 14.
Also as JOR mentioned the new E14 with 5knotters & additional back pressure ought to eliminate sag.
Also we don't know what "Incentives" were offered, at $70K over Arcusin adding to that the need for higher hp tractor and it would make anyone pause.
I'm on the KISS (keep it simple stupid) side the simpler the better for me. In the end it's a tool and as such it will fit one use better than another.
I'd take either one if free
If I have to pay I'd go with less $$
