Hello all, just had a quick question, we are looking at a 327 JD square baler.. just wanted to know what yall thought of them?? we have heard that they will not tie and the guy that has this one says it has never tied right since he bought it new from the factory... is this a common problem with them that is just a 327 or is there something that can be fixed that we dont know about? just any thoughts on the balers would be helpful. Thanks in advance

I want to shorten my bales and lighten them up from 60lbs. Don't have a book on it. So I could use some help

If the knotter in a 327 JD does not tie right, it is because it needs adjustment. Those knotters are the same knotters that every JD baler since the 14T has used---literally millions of balers. If there had been something wrong with that knotter's design, it would have been noticed for a certainty. I have a 337 and it doesn't misstie anything---ever!

With regard to missing knots when switching over balls of twine, I have found that if you put a tiny dab of Gorilla Glue on each side of the knot (either a square knot of sheet bend) the baler will not miss when it changes over.

Good luck,
Scott

My previous post should read "(either a square knot OR sheet bend)"

Sorry 'bout that......

I've had a 327 for 3 years and it doesn't miss knots. As Rick said, when it changes balls of twine it might miss, I assume the operator(me) didn't tie it together right. Other than that it is a workhorse and gives zero problems. I wouldn't trade mine away.

Someone can make it tie right. Knotters can be a pain in the butt, but all can be adjusted to work right. Sometimes it is just an adjustment, other times parts must be replaced. Good luck.

I ran one of those for years in fact wish I would have kept it,it was excellent unit for me Only time it would miss for me was when it would switch balls sometimes and that usually wasn't its fault.simply had knots to big myself. Its still going for the fellow that bought it from me.
