    My uncle bought a Vermeer like the one in the picture. The guy told him he had been baling with it for the last 10 years & never had a problem. He took it home & had to work on it every bale. It kept clogging up & the belts/chains coming off or chains breaking. He spent about $500 on parts & it took about 30 minutes of working on it in the field for every bale it made. He finally sold it for scrap iron & bought a newer one. Lok it over good if you're serious & maybe even have him roll a few to see how it works if at all possible. Someone said that it was top of the line in its day but that day may have already come & gone.

    Its a 1995 Chevy Silverado reg. Cab long bed 4x4 drive train is great but it has spent ten years in a coal mine so the body is rusted like crazy. I think it would be an even trade money wise. I was just want sum in put on the balers and what to look for. I more than likely will trade I don't need the truck any more and it just sits out wasting away! Just wanted to know what one was better! Thanks!

    Went and looked at the balers and a moco today all very good shape the gehl looks nicer than the Vermeer but all I've hear is how bad they are so guess I'll go with the Vermeer that's for the input!
