Most amish in our area use Four horses abreast to pull a round baler

Hills or level? Sand, loam or clay? Dry,damp or wet? 3X3 or 4X6 bales? Dry hay or bagging for haylage? 2WD or 4WD tractor? Is the baling tractor also going to be the tractor with the loader picking up the bales?

If you want to know about "older balers", I have a IH 241 that came over on the Mayflower, it runs fine behind my MF 65 (aprox 45 HP) I did have to put a two-way valve on it to open and close the gate.

We have two KRONE fixed chamber balers that are mid-late 90's models.

The KRONE 125 4x4 baler requires 32HP.

The KRONE 260 5x4 baler requires 42HP.

Pull both behind "No. 15" our 53 Model 70 which is a 50HP tractor.

A lot depends on the baler. I have seen them that need around 30HP and up. The older NH chain balers need a good bit of HP but they also make a big bale as in 5.5 by 5.5 or bigger. The manual for my NH 850 calls for 55 to 75 HP and a good many 55HP tractors have a hard time pulling one like the 850

My Dad and one of the neighbors bought the first 2 round balers ever sold in our county.....605Cs (fellow down the road in another county had an earlier model). We baled with a 4020; neighbor used a 5000 Ford diesel; he had enough power and weight for his mostly flat land, but it wouldn't have worked very well on hills. They used a manual tie, so only one hydraulic circuit was required. We later owned an 851, which required 2 circuits; it was a heavier baler and I don't think the 5000 would have handled it........

The real question is what kind of horsepower do you have. Depending on if your talking about a chain baler, belt baler, or one of the fixed chamber baler there's a huge difference in power requirements. On the safe side 60hp on up is about the only answer I can give at this point.

How many HP do you have? Can't answer the hydraulics but I was laughed at when I mentioned a small round baler on my 26HP.... You find everything in the world on the web, but try finding stuff like this....... Guess al gore wasn't thinking of farmers when he invented the internet.

Not an answer to the original question, but some of the really small baler information is fun to look at. I'm speaking of the balers powered by two wheeled tractors or other small ones.

PDF link below.

Here is also a small one made in China for 25-50 hp tractors. http://foxyurl.com/sCK
