Belt Baler Recommendations

This is reassuring :)

Usually it's after you've taken the plunge that people start coming out of the woodwork to tell you you've made a mistake :rolleyes:
I bought the next gerneration to yours last year. I started off (having had big square balers) with a New Holland 740, it was ok but needed a bit of spanner in to keep going. Sold that just before I moved and bought a fresh McHale 550 because I wanted simple here in France. It was far from simple and I wish I hadn’t read all the hype about how wonderful they were. Sold that last year for the Kuhn 3160 and it is fantastic. My original gripe of not getting enough weight in the bales seems to have improved since i baled our barley straw this year and shone it up, bales seem heavier this year which is what I wanted. In short I am very pleased with it and would probably buy another. I hope yours is as good as mine.
