Is the 135 enough to run all the necessary equipment?
It's enough for running the older equipment, but not a discbine which you ought to have as it would make you so much more efficient.
Running old equipment ,IMO, is OK if for yourself and you may sell the unneeded hay, but NOT to go commercial.
For that you need newer equipment which today does a much better job, also get 1 tedder & 1 rake (rotary preferred) the haybob
doesn't do either well, IMO. How good are you at fixing old equipment, and there will be a lot of fixing and if you can't you'll have problems finding parts & know-how.
It's not cheap these days to start anything in farming. Small Square bales buyers buy 1st with the eyes, so bales must be square and not raggedy and then hay colour.
