I bought a 47 wire tie baler over the weekend. Brought it home and greased it up. After flipping through the manual a little bit I realized that it was a 46 owners manual - I ordered a 47. I ran 6 bales through it and everything seemed to work fine. Other than grease it again the only other thing I plan on doing is making sure the gear box is full and sharpening the blade on the plunger. The guy included 4 new rolls of baling wire - about $70 each.
Anything else I should check?
The boxes of baling wire appear to be oil soaked - the wire is good and he admits its over 3 years old. Should I spray WD40 on it to keep it from rusting?
Will the oil or rust cause an issue?
