    Default square baling?

    Anybody have any thoughts on using an old massey 12 behind my foton 254? At a still it spins it no problem, I have done a small run with little trouble, some merging but not too bad. Reason being of live pto. My ih706 is good for this but can be hard on the clutch. 20 acres of mostly grass with a bit of alfalfa.

    Here's a video on Youtube of a guy pulling a NH 650 with a 254:

    It's working, but it looks like he's going pretty slowly. It also looks like that's an awful lot of weight to be pulling, I wouldn't want to do it on a hill.

    Removing the hood, rollbar and PTO guard is optional...

    Heh I figured so. That 650 is smaller than a 12. Too hard on the drive train I think. Thanks
