the OP didn't say how far it the baler is from his home. reason i say is-usually the tires never make it home without a blow out:laugh:For $295 it's worth the gamble IMO, you'd get more than that for scrap around here if it turned out not to salvageable.
Very true, and the tires are most certainly dry rotted, so I agree, I guess it would depend on how far and by what means of transport will be used.the OP didn't say how far it the baler is from his home. reason i say is-usually the tires never make it home with a blow out:laugh:
but yeah-heck what do u get now a days for $300:dunno::munch:
Told you it was a stupid question, haha. Thanks.
probably gonna half to retime it-if the needles are out of it?? i would think-maybe. i wonder why he took the needles out of it-in the first place:dunno:Told you it was a stupid question, haha. Thanks.
One tire is trash. She mentioned if I could get a trailer but I'll have to call and see if she has a way to get it on the trailer. Ended up having to rush back to work so didn't get to ask everything I wanted to. It looks pretty good not real rusty, knotters are clean. The needles are removed though. She said her husband got really sick and couldn't work on it or much else before he passed. But they are sitting with the baler. If I find a way to get this thing home, are there any big things I should check for that I maybe missed?
Yes 4 bolt implement wheel from 494 planter will fit on RH side of 14T. Any 6 bolt implement wheel should fit on flywheel side of baler. Sq balers don't fit on trailers very easy or well. If I was going to transport baler I'd tow it. Having needles removed won't affect baler timing but it would still be good idea to check timing. Also ditto on checking for correct operation of PH stop.Thank you much! From other pictures I found online it looks intact with the exception of the needles being undone from the baler. It looks like a wheel off my 494 A will fit almost identically to the 4 lug side.
