I don't have any of my usual resources available to look into how it cuts, but generally on a round baler the twine is just placed near the throat of the baler and the bale will snag it. If the twine isn't getting caught, one thing to look into is the twine tension and whether or not you can coax more twine to hang from the twine arm after it gets cut off.

When all else fails, feed a little hay into the baler when the tie cycle starts and the material should pull the twine in.
