John Deere 457 Round Baler Net Wrap Issue

697 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Tx Jim
My John Deere 457 round baler occasionally wraps a bale before the preset diameter is reached (at about 4 or 4.5 feet) and then it wraps the bale again at correct diameter (5 feet). This issue has happened on about 5% of the bales this winter. Any thoughts? Thank you

Is there any way the belt is engaging grabbing? I haven't ever seen this happen in 17 years I have been with John Deere. Of course the monitor and bale size tension sensor on the tension arm (which is an input to the monitor) control the size of the bale. I would probably just check the sensor and make sure it is tight and check the belt and pulleys for issues. If nothing is found see if you can borrow a different monitor and see if the issue goes away. Just some ideas, I hope this helps!
