A local fellow has a model 65 baler for sale, says it works and has it at a fair price.

I was wondering what the general thought was on these guys? I know it's old and it's going to be a smaller, slower baler but I'm more or less looking for something to putz around with. Pretty much bail up some second crop and maybe one of our smaller fields.

Thanks,

K

Great little baler. Makes a (12"x 16" x by whatever length you set bale ) Standard balers are 14" x 18" and the bigger ones are 16" x 18".
In my opinion the preferred baler to use behind small lightweight low hp CUT tractors - the smaller plunger does not shake the tractor like a larger baler can and of couse takes less hp to operate.

The model 65 was made from 1960 to 1965. Early models will have wood on the feeder forks and bushings for wheel bearings. Later models will have phenolic rollers on the feeder forks (instead of wood) and timken bearings on the wheels. It is easy and relatively cheap ($90) to upgrade to the the phenolic rollors on the feeder forks in order to end up with a baler without any wood in it if it is an older model.

Do a search there have been several discussions on the 65 compact baler. I even have some pics posted on this site where I restored one that was in rough shape. Used it last year and I love it.

Great little baler. I have one and bale about 12,000 bales a year. Been doing it for 10 years. No major problems so far. Keep knife sharp and set it so close you can here it click when they meet.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Seems like a decent, 3/4 sized baler.

Last question though, how wide are they? Would the fit easily on a trailer?

Thanks

K

bought one for 200.00 back 12 years ago when i started spent 800.00 rebuilding. baled with it for 6 years or so then gave it to a buddy after graduationg to a 273. Great little baler. boys at the sale barn use to call my bales "woman bales" But I sold more hay to gals with horses cause they could lift em. Mine had oak slides on the tine bar drive. Had to go slow, if you crowd it she snapped a sheer bolt. The wide pickup wasnt always the best esp in lighter wind rows.

I have a New Holland #65 Compact. Don't use it much anymore. Keep it in the shed. They are nice small balers.

Good small capacity baler. You have to have light windrows and go pretty steady. The only draw back on the 65"s was that everything was run by the plunger itself. Other then that it should be a good baler (that is it works right) for you. Look it over and see if the guy can run a couple bales through it.

The 65 is a smaller baler, I think a 12" x 18" bale compaired to normal 14" or 16" x 18" bale. Was one at consignment sale sat in good condition but did not stay to see it sell
