I have a chance to buy a Massey Harris square baler that the owner says baled hay a few years ago. He is wanting junk price at 200 bucks. Should I go for it?? What should I look for or look out for? I can probably scrap it but if it will bale hay might be worth as a backup

low capacity. does not like heavy hay.

Shear bolts are still available at the dealer. 2 years ago they were 1.25 with the nut. Wanted the rollers on the knotters and the parts guy laughed at me.

I started bailing hay with a Massey Ferguson number 3, it was a good little baler. I gave $125 for it, put new sisal twine in it (was told not to use plastic as the bill hooks wouldn't catch it to tie the knots) greased it regularly and baled several thousand bales with it over a 3 year period. Then I sold it for many times more than I gave and upgraded to a little newer baler with more capactiy, wish I had kept the old 3 for a restore but time money and marriage didn't allow it.

Have a #10 that had set in a shed for 10 years and was headed for the scrap. It weighed 3000# and gave $200 for it.
Have baled 6500 - 7000 bales the last 4 years and it works great.

Sounds like a good price if everything is there and in reasonable condition that it could be made to work. Zach

I started out with a #3.Low capacity.Makes a14x18"bale,lenght was preset at 36".It would only make a 40-50 lbs. bale that was hard to pick with the New Holland 1000 stackwagon.Parts availability is probably shakey these days.
