Mine was, luckily it got exported and replaced with a NH 658 which was loads better (predecessor of the yellow ones).They weren’t that bad
I'm hoping they're are a good baler, we've got one coming soon, 2008 model replacing a 648. 648 has been an okay baler for what we were doing, not going to set any records but does the job. Wanted to chop bales hence the upgrade.Hi All
What sort of reputation do the mid 000 New Holland yellow livery round balers have? Are they reliable and easy to use? I currently have a JD 550. Anything to look out for? If they are set up for chopping can knives be easily removed for hay only?
You have lost me there.I had a 7060. It was OK but suffered a few electrical problems. There seemed to be always something about it that worried me about it reliability wise. Got a Krone now, which is a different animal altogether.
I think the most important thing about most round baler and especially a NH is to slow down the hydraulic flow rate to opening the door to release the bale Every time those rams gets to the end of their stroke, is one less time before something is going to go bang, particularly if the flow rate is set too high.
No I haven’t but I sold competitive makes. All belt bakers went through tough times when baking “wet” crops. I would say all now have cured the early gremlinsHave you tried baling haylage with them!!! It's the devil's machine. Spent Many an afternoon pulling silage out of the starting roller and belts. The thought of it sends shivers down my spine.
When you can bale axial flow straw with a narrow pick up 550 , you can bale owt , maybe devils machines now , but where the baler in their day ,like 30 drills ,and fahr drum mowers ,Have you tried baling haylage with them!!!

Peter used to do thousands with a small baler, hes knocking on a bit now and cannot handle the work of one now! (He will roast me for this comment!)Can get a brand new round baler for the price of a questionable square imo.........unless you meant little square baler??
