    Mini baler for 1025R

    I've been looking for a mini baler to work with my 1025R. I know some of those Italian-built ones will work, but they are rather expensive. I see Yanmar makes the YMRB32 that requires an 18HP PTO (which the 1025R does, barely) and weighs 734 pounds. So I'm assuming if I don't try to overwork the machine with too heavy windrows, I figure PTO power will suffice. But since it weighs 53 pounds over the stated lift capacity (According to JD specs) is it a deal-breaker or is there enough leeway with specs that the weight won't be a major issue? We're very flat ground and distance to the field isn't that far.

    I'm assuming lift height isn't an issue with a 1025R? I know there are times I've been a little frustrated with the Limited Cat 1.

    Thanks in advance for opinions!

    That bailer is on wheels so its weight should not be an issue for you

    Good luck finding what you want.

    I don't think you need to lift it? Looks like its a pull type baler just like the big boys. Edit; It is 3pt mounted.

    With a decent size tractor you could probably pick up a decent used baler for a couple thousand bucks.

    $11k vs. $2k - that's $9k to put toward a larger tractor that would make running a baler a breeze.

    Can't fault you for wanting to use your tractor to do your own work, I mean that's why we buy them, right? Given the size of bale these little balers put out, I would try to find someone with a small square baler to custom bale my hay. They stack and handle easier than rounds.

    Best of luck with your purchase!

    I looked into the horsepower requirements of vintage square ballers and couldn’t find a model that the 1025r could comfortably power. But there are so many vintage tractors out there for cheap that I personally wouldn’t attempt to use the 1025 anyways. But it had been a long time since I bailed any hay and I’m unlikely to do so any time soon. I was really just curious, so I could have overlooked a model. I know that Messicks showed a BX pulling a square bailer, but I couldn’t figure out which model.

    As to your question, It doesn’t look like the 3pt takes all of the weight so you should be fine. Remember that any quick hitch will move the weight backwards and adds weight of its own, but since it has its own wheels, that shouldn’t be an issue either.

    If I were to go small this is as small as I would go.

    But it's not as much about HP with a baler as it is about weight, if your ground is flat no problems, but if you have any hills you wouldn't want something pushing you. I think with a small tractor, even a 2R or 3 series you'd want something on a drawbar so you can offset and not have the tractor trying to straddle the windrows.
