I've run a few Deere balers, and the one thing that was always a problem was the belt driven pickup. I drove for my cousin and if the hay was knocked down before being cut and we tried to go the opposite direction when baling, it would just slip the belt and stop the pickup. Had to turn around or move over to another windrow.

Our Massey #12 was giving us fits a while back so we borrowed the neighbors baler to get the hay done. I had raked it double (2 x 14' windrows) and I shouldn't have, so the windrows were extremely full. The hay was dry and the quality was fine, but the pickup couldn't pull it in as it would jam up under the fingers over the pickup and nothing I could do would make it feed any better.

I've never been very impressed with the deere balers, and that's coming from a guy who runs a Massey #12 (low capacity, small, and old) every year. One thing that NEVER gives me any issues is the pickup.

The only time I've slipped my pickup was if the teeth are running in the dirt more than an inch or so.
