    Re: Hay rakes

    I have a Sitrex 10-wheel V-rake like this one, because it works, and it's what I can afford.

    Re: Twine prices?

    It's absolutely NUTS!
    The last pallet of sisal twine (52 bales on a pallet, I think) that I bought was a little over a $1000. That was 4 years ago. Now, it's almost triple that!! Hard to believe...

    Re: Haying quandries

    Help us out here. Are you asking for experience because you're looking at buying your own equipment, or are you already haying and maybe you're struggling with getting it right?

    Re: 2015 Hay Season

    OK, that's it. I'm done for the year.

    Finished rolling Friday afternoon. Got only 49 rolls (4x5) from 52 acres. Most of my hay meadows were only cut twice this year. A good cutting in June, and...

    Re: 2015 Hay Season

    It finally got dry enough that I was able to get a cutting in last month. (early July) Did OK. 176 rounds (4x5) from 52 acres.
    We haven't had measurable rainfall since. Now, it's so dry the grass...

    It was a mix of red rice, native rye grass, clover, and some Coastal Bermuda. Really needed to...

    Re: Which baler to buy??

    I'm with Jim.
    My first pick is a JD. I wouldn't be afraid of a Vermeer or NH, but they're not a JD.
    And, be patient. Now is probably not the best time to be buying. Wait until the end of the...

    Re: BEST grease for backhoe

    I would think that the Mobil CMS would be.

    Go here: Where to Buy | Mobil™ Canada and use the "distributor locator" function.

    Re: Lucas oil stanilizer

    I've used it myself, and liked the results. Nothing scientific. Just personal preference.

    Some people swear by it, others swear at it.

    YMMV

    Powerscol was correct. Turns out the access cover was on the side, not the back. Removed the cover and reached inside and...

    Re: Cost per bale

    About 5 years ago, when the drought was at its worst here, my total summer hay crop was 26 rolls (4x5) from 52 acres. Figuring lime and fertilizer, twine and normal maintenance costs, I think it was...

    Re: What a dipstick! HELP!

    Nope. I can remove the inspection plate (part #16) but only after I remove the gearbox from the baler. And, I really don't want to do that. Very tight work space and fairly complicated.

    Thanks.

    What a dipstick! HELP!

    What a dipstick, literally.

    The gearbox on the JD 457 baler has a plastic filler plug/aluminum dipstick. The plastic threads were stripped and I was trying to remove it so I could replace it. I...
