Questions. What kind of crop are you cutting and is your baling weather typically humid or are you in the Southwest in a dry climate. Humidity or the lack of will dictate whether you need a conditioner for the hay plus a tedder. I know you asked on a Farmall (IH) board but most of the recommendations will not involve IH hay tools. I liked the IH 1190 mower-conditioner but that is over a quarter of a century ago and it has been said CNH is considering paring back parts availability for such older products. Assuming you need a mower with a conditioner system I would look at a New Holland or 12XX John Deere. As far as balers go everybody has a preference and has a strong opinion but I will say a New Holland or John Deere post 1970 with a couple exceptions. If you can find a dirt cheap NH 461 mower-conditioner and a NH 270 baler you will most likely have a couple of thousand dollars invested. I know people will have stories about how they found a mint machine stowed away in a barn for last twenty years and paid 100 dollars for it but that is far from an everyday occurance. If you need a tedder then figure another thousand dollars and a side delivery rake then several hundred more. Now we have to talk wagons and there figure another several hundred dollars each again. Where this is leading is you may have much more invested than you anticipated. It might be a good idea to find out what the rates are for custom work (for you to hire) in your area and evaluate if owning your own is the best way to go. One thing said for owning your own is when you want to go the equipment is there waiting barring breakdowns. Good luck figuring out your best option.
