Just picked up an 855 new holland at a auction, in great shape with the monitor and electric tie. Looks like I need to remove a bar and link in the apron chain as they "clank" empty, the full bale chain was not connected and the rear door latch was misadjusted. Also need to put a new wear plant on the top for the apron chain in the middle. Other than this it was in really good shape and wnt for nothing, great paint too. Any tips for the 855 over the 851 I used to use. This thing seems nice. How are the bales compared to from a 851? How tight a bale do they make?

Thanks I will try that, there is not much left for adjusting there looks like maybe 3/4 of an inch, I figured it might be time to remove a bar. I am hoping the bales are tighter than my old 851 made, they did not weather that well. IT they get to heavy I might just have to make them a little smaller.

Hi John,

Hold it a minute. There is an adjustment for that apron chain "clank" you're hearing. Needs to be checked/adjusted every 25 hours of operation and is often overlooked.

After you have completed replacing your upper chain guides:

Assure that there is 40 psi of air in the bags, open the door and lock it. Up front, under the sissor arms there are two large set screws, one on each arm. Loosen the lock nuts and screw these guys in a couple of turns.

Let the door back down and unscrew the setscrews until they just touch the baler frame. Lock the nuts in place. Now, that empty chamber "clank" should be gone.

Your bales will be twice the weight that the 851 made. Don't run it with more that 40 lbs initial air pressure because ya won't be able to lift the darned bales! :>)
