They use binder twine, which is a smaller spool than baler twine. They don't so much tie the bale, as wrap it. like the big round balers of today.

Do they make a good bale or should I suggest they look for a square baler, it's only for their own hay on a small acreage for a few animals

I owned one years ago and learned to hate it. Bales where hard to handle since you had no twine you could grab hold of so you had to have a bale hook or long arms. Ya if done right and you have some one who knows them they maybe ok but I'll not own one again.

I always used two hay hooks to handle the bales and there was a tool hanging on the back of the bailer to poke the string end into the bale to keep it from unwinding. If the knife didn't cut the string clean it would wind the whole spool of twine into the next bale. Worked great for bedding straw, you could just unroll it across the stall.

Its something that you have to get used to. They are different to handle stack and feed. They also can survive rain after harvesting, but take more labor, in my view, than small squares. Cheap equipment to own, can be dangerous, to the ignorant. Overall, they are a young man's game.
