    you would prolly be better suited to get an 85hp tractor for all your wanting todo.that way you could pull a 4 by 6 baler with ease.about all the 5065 could pull is a 4 by 5 baler.

    I use the kubota M7040(now a M7060) to pull my 4x5baler,12ft bushhog and daily cattle operations and I wouldnt wont to go any smaller than the 64pto HP. The 85HP bigbull mentioned would be a great option if the pocket book would allow and wouldnt be over kill by any means. Level fields mine works great,even with small grades its not bad but I couldnt see going any smaller,and many times in a rush would like more HP but the new M7060 has a 12x12 better gear selection. With loaded rears it moves round bales great,the one without not unless got one on the back. I use a 3point 8ft hay cutter and dont have to run my loader but anything bigger without a caddy I would see needing it on. Can you make due with a 5065,im sure you could but I have made the costly mistake of having to do it twice,to get the one should have in the first place. I bale around 150 to 200 bales a year,own/lease 500+acres(100 being hay ground),at the moment 54head cows&2 Bulls and if only had to work with one tractor instead of the two 7040s,it would be atleast a 85+HP. JohnDeere 5083/5093e, Kubota M8560/9960 ,Mahindra 8560/100p , NH Powerstar 4.85/4.95 something along those lines. M100GX is what I wont...

    What my dealer has been recommending is the 5093e for general baling needs. It also depends on your baler.

    Agreed. I would look at a 5083E or 5093E. If your budget can stand it, the 5M series is a nice upgrade to the 5E.
    That 63hp would be in a bind. 80+ hp will handle a 4x5 or 4x6 with ease.

    Just so you'll be aware of it, the JD is a much heavier machine than the kubota. Makes hay handling easier without having to add rear ballast.

    IMHO, the best round balers are JD and Vermeer. In that order. And, my opinion, plus 50 cents might get you a half cup of coffee, in some places.

    BTW, to the forum.

    My other tractor is a '95 Kenworth.

    You hardly ever hear anyone say that they wish they had less horsepower.

    Exactly the route I went. 5093e running a deere 567 baler. Great all around tractor for us "small" farmers. I put up ~100 bales a year.
