I owned a 851 for several years. Moline Guy gave you good advice. I think the thing I would do with a baler that had set for that long would be to replace the cables that keep the tension on the chain. There is one on each side of the baler at the top of the tailgate. I had one of these break while baling and all heck happened. You do not want that aggravation. Even if they look good they will probably have rust internally. Raise the tailgate, block the cylinders, replace those cables. My dealer suggested even oiling them. Good luck.

Definately keep the cables oiled, and like kerry50 said if they are rusty, best to replace both of them before, otherwise you get to replace them and straighten up the mounts when they snap. Only thing I disagree on is having the end gate open to change these cables. Best to have the endgate closed, remove spring covers, and then you just back off the tension on the springs a bit, this will leave the cable loose enough to get the pins out. When the endgate is up there is a lot of tension on the springs so you would't be able to change the cables.
