Any New Holland baler. Most John Deere balers. Few (if any) IH balers. You'll want a thrower and racks unless you have a passel of teen-age kids. Pretty much any side rake. For mowing I like my Matthews rotary scythe but it sucks up a lot of power. New Holland mowers have a good reputation but I have no experience with them. Depending on your barn you may want a conveyor.
