Reco RC52 round baler


I’ve chance of a well looked after Reco RC52 round baler. It’s sub £2k, net wrap & sold as all working. I know it’s old but is it worth a go for doing around 150/200 hay/haylage bales per year? I’ve lots of small fields that are spread out. Means being anywhere near the top of contractor priority is impossible. I sell a lot to horse customers so being able to go when I want to ensure quality appeals. Im mechanically minded & used to running old gear! Locally welger or now mchale are the favourites so I’ve no one to quiz for experience whether a RC52 is good or not. Has anyone any opinions on these balers? Or should I run away?!

Run rabbit run.

Neighbour had one around 93-94 and it was a heartbreaker.
If it’s lasted this long it’s maybe the one good one they made.
