    Older / Classic Round balers

    I’m looking at getting myself a round baler. Only covering about 75 acres straw and 50 acres grass/ hay of my own Just wondering what would be a good make / model to consider, ideally bale hay as 4fts and straw 5fts. New Holland seem quite good value, John Deere 590’s / welfare’s seem to...

    Advice on kit for small scale hay making please.

    Hi and happy(ish) new year to you all. We are planning to turn a field over to grass and make small hay bales for the local equestrian market. About 2.5 Ha total. We have a baler and handling equipment and a Vicon speeder 300 that's been heavily modified to fluff and aerate straw behind our...

    Moving Small Square bales

    I usually make 15000 square bales of straw at harvest time and it's pretty slow and stressful, next year I'm hoping to make 20000 and can't think how to speed things up much more without forking out £40k+ for a second hand balepacker. There's only 3 of us, one man on the baler and flat 8 sledge...

    Mchale f5500 or kuhn fb3130?

    Anybody any experience with both? On paper very similar balers, kuhn works out less with a drawbar on for the wrapper and mchale don't make a drawbar any more [emoji85]

    Mower conditioner

    I’m looking about for a new/tidy used moco seeing that my contractor is giving up. Would really like a trailed mower like our old Kuhn 250g 10 years ago! Any body out there had any experience with a krone 2800 trailed or a jd 1355. Gone off the idea of a mounted mower after my mate snapped the...

    First baler on a serious budget. Whats good whats not?

    I'm shopping for a baler, don't have a lot of baling to do and will likely upgrade in a few years but to start with I need something under £5k that's a good machine. Don't mind a bit of work to get it right but a machine that's reliable and simple would be good. Bear in mind that although I have...

    Anybody want any wholecrop?

    Hey how's everyone doing? I had a cheeky experiment direct drilling winter wheat in late January, 2 months later nothing had chitted and my agronomists told me there's no need to glyphosate and just to drill spring oats. Annnyway looks like some cheeky wheat plants didn't get the message...

    Snapping Flywheel Shear Bolts on a New Holland 276 Super Baler

    Have been helping the brother in law do some small bales. He is using an MF390 with a New Holland 276 Super Baler. I would anticipate we have done 10 acres and 600 bales, but we keep snapping the flywheel shear bolt. As fat as we are aware everything it set up correctly. PTO turning at 540...

    TV Licence a.k.a. the BBC tax - no, not again.

    Well, I've paid my licence fee for as long as I can remember despite, in recent years, being monumentally nauseated by the BBC's political bias and PC preaching. I like the idea of the BBC as an institution, but not what it's become, and reading the article below - I quote some of the more...
