    We use a Sitrex Y rake and have it set to give us a windrow the width of the intake on the roller. We have not had to weave in years. The monitor tells us when the chamber is full. In good heavy spring hay we can kick out a 5 X 5 bale every 90 seconds including tying time. Ken Sweet

    Easy always seems to come with a healthy price tag

    hi i have been round baleing for several years more then i care to admit, since your just starting i think you will find,that a belt baler with electric tie will do just fine for you. you can get whatever you want you are the man buying ,but you wont like the manual tie and you will pay for the auto wrap. the electric tie work very well i had one made by vermeer worked great no problems and i baled several hundred bales a year for horses and cattle. hope this helps you

    The baler I'm looking at is a New holland 849 with new chains and an electric tie. Everyone is saying the chain baler is more forgiving for a novice such as myself. Do they make an older "auto wrap" baler? If I understand what everyone is saying regarding the auto wrap is there isn't any weaving to feed the baler. Right? Also, I really appreciate everyone's comments because they're very helpful. THANKS!

    chains, were nice back in the day. there is more maintence with them, and the bales arent quit as nice looking and dense as with a belt baler. and yes Check out a NH 678 which is a 5x5 auto wrap made in the late 90's to 2002 or a 688 which is a 5x6 but you can adjust your size and weight if you want a true 5x5. you can find good used balers of these models from $6 to $10 give or take

    Here is a link to one of the slickest NH 648 balers you will find anywhere. It has not been cleaned up and does not need to be. Ken Sweet
