We have an Older(not sure of exact year) John Deere 456 SS round baler with electric net wrap and hydraulic twine tie , currently it has the older type monitor with just the two arrow gauges for bale shape and a separate controller for the net wrap. I was wondering if anybody knew if you can use the newer style Bale Trak monitor with the older baler and what all we would have to change on our baler to make it work.
Also if anybody else has a 456 with the old net wrap controller, I was wondering if you have to press and hold the button down the entire time the bale wraps until the cut light flashes. We bought this baler used and that how we were told how to make the net wrap work, but not sure if that's the way it is suppose to be used, and we think that by holding it down we maybe wearing out the net wrap actuator.
Thanks in advance for any responses
