in our last staff meeting, we discussed an issue with the 459 silage special baler. It hasn't baled 5,000 bales yet and the drive chain is already in need of repair?? Is this a common problem with these balers. It seems as though the quality may be lacking in design or materials. Has anyone else run into this problem with this equipment.

Welcome to GTT
Has baler operator been faithfully lubricating the drive chains? I lube my chains with either motorcycle or JD chain lube. I don't have many chain problems on my JD 467 baler. It's baled over 26,000+ bales but I can't remember how many times I've replaced the chains. I know the sprockets are worn & I need to replace them.
