There is a New Holland 255 tedder coming up on a sale. Does anyone have any experience with one of them? Anything to look out for as far as wear and tear or expensive parts? What kind of price might I be looking at? Thanks for any info.

Well, the 255 went for $775. A practically new tedder very similar to the one in the picture (no name brand available) went for $1,700. A New Holland 156 in pretty good shape went for $1,400 and a like new Massey Ferguson 4 basket with hydraulic wings went for $2,400. None of them went home with me though. A local dealer has a new Durabuilt for $2,350. I didn't realize that they were worth nearly their weight in gold. Thanks for the information. I will keep looking. Dave

Usually the New Holland stuff is pretty reliable, but I have never heard anyone who owns one say a single thing good about a NH 254 or 255 rake/tedder.

As for a Haybob, I bought one years ago almost by accident. Have used it now for the last 7 or 8 years, very few problems, easy to fix. Turns out, Haybobs are the standard tool in europe for tedding hay. If you can find one they really work well. Saw a brand new KUHN, just like my old one on a dealers lot in Ramsey Indiana last year, so they are still making them. Check them out on Youtube.

Those combination units are not the best to use/own. They really don't do either job the best. I would just buy a tedder and rake separately. The NH 255 is better than the early NH254 but both can be real money pits if not maintained correctly.

Thanks for the info. I may pass on the 255. Sounds like it could be a money pit.

I have a Hesston 3710. Not sure who realy made it but pobably a dozen different names on the same basic machine, Befco, Sitrex, etc. Very bullet proof.

Tedders like the Sitrex above are sold new for $1,500 That tedder needs new tires & a PTO shield. The value of the one pictured in $500 as is.

Everything is expensive for them... Everything wears out on them. I've got a 254 which is the older model of the 255... The 255 is probably not quite as bad as the 254 but it's still not something I would even remotely consider owning. It's one of the sorriest pieces of equipment NewHolland ever painted their name on.
If you need a tedder/rake combo, look for a PZ Haybob or one of it's knockoff's.
Much more reliable and cheaper to maintain.
