I would not own a New Holland chain baler such as an offense old. That baler is one step ahead of a horse power stacker and one behind a square baler in my opinion. For what your talking about I would want a Vermeer F series, 504 or 605. They can be had for 2k-3500. They are the first Vermeers with an open throat and will start a bale much easier than the closed throat models and will bale a nice bale. I once baled a lot of hay with's still sitting in the shed.

I pretty much agree; we had an 851, a 605C and a 605F. Only used the NH when we were baling cornstalks or in an emergency. Price depends....I suppose.... on where one is located. When I sold the last of the cows about 6 years ago, i sold the "F" for 1000 bucks; just no demand around here.

No offense taken. In my area the old chain baler is about as good as it gets since you have to work with rock and years where your lucky to get much of any thing. But I do also keep my hay in a barn and when it comes to cost hard to beat paying $500-600 for one that will bale most any thing

You are right Old about an 850 will bale anything. Someone said here once that an 850 will bale fence posts and I pretty much agree with them. I bought one for $500 and baled lot's of bales with only replacing one of the gauge wheels. No doubt there are much better balers, but 850's work if you don't have much hay, or are in rough conditions. Bob

i agree. The F series is the start of the modern type Vermeer baler. I had a C and I thought it was ok when there was nothing else to compare it to. Wouldn't those New Holland chain teeth always be poking holes in the hay layers so water gets in?
