I have 2 working 276's, they are great, If you have heavy windrows I would recommend a 276, if you have lighter ones, a good 273 would be fine, just slower.

If I recall correctly the NH 276 was their first high capacity square baler and is known for pumping them out. The follow-on high capacity NH baler is the 320 which was a disaster per a New Holland tech rep I talked too. He stated that the 320 was of a design that turned a later lightened basic frame then the 276 into their high production square baler. The high stroke count on the light weight frame just destroyed them. I've seen a couple 320's at farm auctions and both appeared to be a training ground for beginning farmer welding classes from the amount of welds to the frame and bale chamber. A neighbor had one when the 320's first came out and it worked fine for the first 2 or 3 years before it started to self destruct. I don't know where the NH 316 fits into the series but I saw one for sale and to me with my NH 273 and later NH 311 it looked like a battleship compared to a destroyer escort but it might be a very durable baler also but don't know anyone with a 316 or even one in the neighborhood so can't comment on them, Hal.

Someone here will correct me on this, but I have heard that on either the 315 or 316 there has been a high number of them loosing their tongue... Breaking off, I do not remember which model for sure though.
