Wow, you learn something new every day. I had no idea that motors were still available in the 70's and 80's. I would not think that they sold many that way. Maybe mostly to the Amish and Mennonites??? Thanks

If you want to run a baler at maximum capacity it needs to have an engine on it OR you need a hydrostatic drive on the tractor pulling it. Particularly true if the tractor has only a 4 or 8 speed transmission. Of course, the new infinitely variable transmissions will also allow maximum throughput of a PTO machine.
If you go to the big westcoast hay operations you will see a lot of New Holland and Freeman balers with engines.

Well if you think about it this way. What happens to the guy who wants to bale some hay but only has a small as in not enough HP tractor on the PTO. Well he buys a baler with it own engine so then the tractor can both pull the baler and he can bale hay. Ya not what you see every day but it is done.

In central TX you never saw a PTO baler. We baled a lot of Johnson Grass and sorgum type grasses like Haygrazer. This was coarse heavy stuff and the farmers would use VACs, and SCs, especially when they came out with foot throttles, Ford 8Ns, JD Ms, and Farmall Cs and Hs to bale with. When you hit a thick spot you just throttled the tractor down to let the baler catch up. That is why foot throttle tractors and balers with their own engines were popular around us.I didn't see a PTO baler until 1966.Those that listened to the users did well.
