Worn out machines can always be rebuilt no mater how bad they are, now if it is rusted away that is a different story. I would try to get it rebuilt and also find a second baler of same model for a backup. I rebuild up to 80+ year old machinery for the folks that want that type of machinery and nothing has been made for the last 50 years that they are allowed to use. So rebuilding is the only option.

I agree. The old stuff was made way better that the stuff being made today.

You really think so? I love old tractors and machinery, but new machinery, especially balers, are much, much better machines then their predecessors. I expect my new balers to punch out 25-30,000 bales per baler, every season, with mininal maintenance. Show me an old one that can do that.

For his use he doesn't need that high a capacity of the new and a good complete rebuild job plus a backup baler of his same model that he has will cost less than the new baler.

He might not need a baler that has that kind of capacity, but then again I don"t need a dozen antique tractors or a home with indoor plumbing, but I still have them. If the man wants a newer baler and has the means then why try to persuade him to buy a headache or in your case, two of them? I"m a Deere fan, but I"ll bet if he springs for this 5050 he can bale his 3500 bales for the next 10 years without putting $100 worth of parts in it. That in itself is worth the added cost of newer, to many people.

Also, in this area, good quality alfalfa/grass hay is bringing $10 a bale out of the stack, and rained on hay that layed in the field too long because the owners worn out baler couldn"t get the hay baled right is worth $5 a bale. Even on only 3500 bales that is the cost of the newer baler in one season.
