Different class machines...

640 is a 4x5 baler and a lot more substantial machine.

The 540 is a 4x4 baler and was more inline with the smaller NH 630 baler.
Also depends what tractor you have to run the baler...the 540 will run on 40 PTO, some also need dual remotes unless electric tie equipped.
Assume you have enough tractor, 640 would be my pick.

The 540 design was last used by MF as the 1744 which is not offered any more.
The 640 design is still going as mentioned in the current NH line up.

I`ll be running the baler on either the 4020, or the 4440, so horsepower is not an issue, for sure. The NH certainly seems like a lot stouter baler, but I have been happy enough with my hesston square baler that the 540 caught my eye. I think the fact that the NH has been parked in a barn and always cleaned out since it was new is going to be the deciding factor.
