The 45 baler was the first small farmer sized baler IH made. It used the new McCormick style double diameter style knotter. Many people don't grasp the idea that it makes a bow knot, only one twine is cut and the bale pulls the knot off the bill hook. All the deering style knotters cut both twines and strip the knot off the hook with the stripper. The 50T used the Deering style knotter and a very complicated head lowering, driving mechanism. Way too much machinery for the job at hand. The 45 also used way too complex a needle drive system with that huge cam driving the needles. It drove the needles at a different rate of speed depending on the stage of the tying cycle. like I said , far too complex for the job. They did not have the knotters and needles refined enough yet either. They were the first balers I had to work on. Not an easy assignment when you had never worked on any part of a baler before in your life. The 46 was a much more refined unit but still lacked the little extras on the knotters for overall performance. When they added the twine end retainer springs and the adjustable tapered cord holder drive that made all the difference in the world. Just glad I no longer have to contend with balers that don't tie and frustrated farmers using them.
