Mike, I too had a MF 10 baler and used it alot. Upon buying it I totally went through it with paint and chains and such... the only drawback to them I saw was the inconsistentcy of the bale length and the absolute need to have text book windrows to get a good bale. The last point is a laugh, that baler absolutely hated my wife to the point I thought it was "demon's posessed". It would bale 200-300 bales without incident and if she walked out into the field it would drop one after another to where I'd just have to stop until she left, then (without touching the baler)I could go back to normal performance. Hope all of this but the last part helps, Dennis

:I had a MF 10 for yrs. make sure the chains are in good tension. I loved the knotters, they just worked great. The problem i got into was the hay feeder arms got too much side play. There is no grease points for those arms. If you find the bushing need to be replaced do it this winter because once they get so lose they will crash (Side to side movement too much) ontop of the baler breaking chains bending things up. At the age of this baler fixing after a major crash becomes too expensive

I have a MF 10 that I use for a backup to my John Deere.I took the packer forks apart and drilled holes and tapped them with a 1/4" fine thread tap and put grease fittings in them,one on each side of each packer fork.There are also a lot of bronze bushings in those balers.I go to King Bearing(or any big bearing house) and order them by demensions.If I can only get one that is longer,I just cut it off.Much much cheaper than dealer bushings.
