    14T JD Baler?

    Was wanting some oppinions on if a John Deere 14T Baler would run off my 2032R. Read somewhere that the older balers use less hp. I've never owned one. It would be nice to bale my own hay and not have it done.

    I wouldn't think you would have a problem with that, but I'm no expert.

    I know a guy that used to run a Vermeer 605J round baler w/ his Ford 2000 (I think) with a 3cyl Perkins in it. I don't believe they put out much over 38hp.

    Are you going to drop bales on the ground? I wouldn't want to try to pull a hay wagon too.

    I agree with DRobinson. I think weight will be as much of an issue as power. The 14T alone is about 2,500 lbs. If you pull a wagon behind it, you have the weight of the wagon along with the hay. A good bale will be at least 50-60 lbs, and it gets heavy fast.

    The 2032 has 23 HP at the PTO. It might work, but I suspect it'll be a very slow process. Overall I think a 2 series, and maybe even a 3 series is a little on the light side for hay production.

    Balers have that big fly wheel and lots of reciprocating parts. They tend to thrash a light tractor around quite a bit. We used to do quite a bit of baling with an Allis WD45. It was a pretty good tractor for the time, but you took a beating, and it was probably 4500 pounds, but maybe only 30 PTO HP. If you do try it, make sure you take some video
    I thought somebody made a little baler for compacts though. I recall seeing a thread on TBN.

    I remember seeing that. Wasn't it a round bailer? I also remember... But barely ,seeing a miniature square bailer some where's.

    I did quite a bit of square bailing when I was in jr high. The ford 8 or 9 n beat the crap out of me. It was a relief to get down on the ground and load bales onto the trailer... At .06 cents/ bale

    These guys have a "mini-baler" that they claim will run on 15hp (PTO). It'd be a nice toy but way more than I'm willing to spend.

    The 14T's didn't do nearly as bad as other brands of that era! The 14T had the flywheel on the side, instead of in-line on the power shaft, making them much smoother operating. I've baled many of bales through a 14T, mostly behind this 720D: Click image for larger version.

    We do bale it on the ground. Only about 7 acres. Going slow wouldn't be a problem. I just don't want to tear up my tractor. I found a 14t baler on Craigslist for $600.-- The guy says he baled 800 bales last summe but the knotters are out of time now. On the fence since I know nothing about them but am willing to learn.

    Can you take your tractor over there and hook up to it for a test run?
