    [QUOTE=PJR832;3299096]Almost done. Baled the last 4 acres this afternoon, but not without incident. Due to a real crappy spool of twine not pulling out of the center as it should we snapped the string, that caused the other side to bind and both knotters were wound up with twine. Took them apart and untangled the mess, rethreaded the one side, this was about 20 bales into our afternoon. Started in again without tension just to make sure both knots were tying, popped the shear bolt in all of 15 feet, one side wound twine up around the knotter again took it apart and cleaned it off and we were finally off to the races. All this with two crescent wrenches, a pair of vice grips and the dullest pocket knife Iíve ever used. Lost a valuable hour but still finished what we started. 370 bales with three windrows that will make 2-3 round bales tomorrow.

    218 bales on this one.
    In case any of you havenít stacked wagons from a belt kicker baler.


    Looks good
    Hate that when you get a bad spool of twine. We had to play with the round baler last year when we started. Had to find twine it liked, seam picky but doing good now.
    Must be a pain to load and unload from a kicker wagon?
    Will get another field done today. Kinda goofy field but decent hay. Checked it last night and almost could have baled but wait until today.

    Seriously, I didn't even dare to pull that down off the hill with the Ford 5000, FIL law brought that one down with the 2555 and I brought the kicked on wagon down with the Ford.

    Yup, seems the twine is not nearly the quality it used to be.

    Man just got in the house and shower. Hot muggy today. Mowed Moms lawn this morning. Then went to checked hay and cousin beat to raking which was good. Went and grabbed another wagon and we got 42 rounds, baled loaded and hauled home
    (3 miles one way). Tired time for bed.

    we small square baled most of the field yesterday....we use a accumulagrapple to put them on trailers/wagons and then park them under cover till i get around to unloading them......but usually someone else will want some hay so usually as we finish up if i have time i will hook up a bale basket and put 50-100 bales in it park it under cover till they come get it and dump it under a shade tree and let them load it themselves...saves me several handlings of the bales...thought you guys might like a bale basket picture in process we put 60 bales in it this time
