My vote would be for a New Holland 273 as it is probably the baler made in the highest numbers of any produced by any manufacturer. There are several 273's in my neighborhood here in Missouri that folks own doing a similar number of bales as you each year. I upgraded this past year from a 1969 NH 273 to a NH 311 which is even more bullet proof and somewhat newer (1982) which is a follow-on from the earlier series from which the NH 273 evolved. The NH 311 I found was shed kept and like a new baler in that it was hardly used with only 11,000 bales per the seller baling alfalfa hay for his calves. The NH 311 model wasn't produced in near the quantity as the NH 273 as it was introduced at the time there was a move toward the round balers I believe. In this part of the country New Holland hay equipment is the standard and I would venture that 80-90% of hay equipment is New Holland. Another plus in this area is the NH dealership as he is very supportive of the equipment in the field with service, parts, etc. during the hay season with 24/7 service if necessary. Another important point to consider is the reputation of the dealership that will be supporting your equipment for parts and service. As mentioned above my New Holland dealer maintains a very high level of all wear parts and those subject to breakage and can supply almost anything overnight if truly needed. Hope this helps, Hal.
