    Wish we could raise hay/alfalfa here! We put up 60-80 ton a year and at up to $250.00 a ton that is a big chunk to feed the livestock over the winter. Looks like fun on the tractor to me! At least I get to load them in our barn for entertainment.

    I didnt see a round baler in your tag line......curious as to what your using and how you like it.....looks like smaller bales?

    we are going to try to finish up next week...have a cut height extension kit on the way so i can cut higher......were doing small sq bales for horse people.....i did do 10 rounds to finish up one field just to get it up before a rain..

    New Holland 640. My Cousinís baler, bought it used last spring as we just started doing round bales last year. Does a good job, and is in really good shape. Guy he bought it from takes good care of his equipment. Have been doing nothing but square until last year. We are a family farm and share equipment. 5x5 bales easier for us to store and handle. We still do some 3rd cutting square for inside feeding.

    i can relate to the 14t and 24t...used a 24t till this year and found a 336 really not much difference 336 is a bit less worn and a bit more reliable so far ....like you the 24t is on a family members hobby farm still kicking out bales.....amazing old balers i often wonder how many bales they have made over the years.....i would sure like to find a old 4 x 4 round baler ....my round baler is a old 6 x 6 chain baler semi-reliable but 10-20 a day would be all it wants LOL ...we have been struggling with overly thick hard to dry hay this year......thanks for sharing i really enjoy seeing and doing the process..

    you should include some cutting pictures

    14t I keep around for a back up. Last time it baled was 3 years ago (ran like a top)when I did a field for a friend and other baler was doing another field. Wish I knew how many bales it has done in its life, as it was my great Uncles that he bought new. Thought about selling it as it most likely will never be used again as I have a 24t and so does my cousin. Probably wouldnít get anything For it.
    Iíll try to get some cutting picís, havenít been in front of the haybine yet this year. Cousin has been doing the cutting, seams like Iíve been running equipment around. I didnít even Tedder, Uncle was on the Tedder. Only Tedder one field this time.

    Not the best pics, but cousin cutting front of small field next to buddies house. Hauled equipment over there last evening. Finished before dark. Thick and tall. First cut for this field also. Try to get better pic next time.

    in our humidity and with mice nests in the field cutting thick hay like that with a sickle type cutter presented quite the challenge for sure .......

    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.
