What is the trouble with mesh wrap. You just cut the bottom and remove it all in one go. The strings are a mess if left on the bale and take longer to remove. Plus we have alfalfa mixed hay around here. You will loose the outside 6 inches off every bale with twine. With mesh wrap it maybe 1-2 inches. The saved hay will soon pay for the mesh wrap.

JD to be fair I gotta mention I left a lot of hay in the field loader broke down and got sick and busy with other stuff and eventually said heck with it I'll just feed it out of the field. I"LL NEVER DO that AGAIN But I still like my baler.

That's funny I use a twine M&W and do not loose six inches off every bale. I do not loose even 1 inch. The hay I save has more than paid the for the barn I put it in. I have timed myself and have cut the twine and balled it up and flip the hay ring around the bale in about sixty seconds. I can not understand why the M&W bale has such a bad rep as it does. Sure it may not be for every body but for some of us trying to make a go they work just fine. I have none of the problems mentioned.

Sid: Is your hay mostly grass??? If it is then it will shed the water better than mixed hay.

I used to use twine because I thought I could not justify a mesh wrap baler. My first crop hay would have a lot of spoilage. One year I had my baler go down right in the middle of first crop hay. I rented a mesh wrap baler to finish first crop with. I was amazed at the difference in the spoilage between the two.

My first crop hay is usually 50% alfalfa 50% grass. Then the next cuttings are more alfalfa as it will out grow the grass.

Grass and clover some lespadeza. I do agree there is a place for wrap. I do not leave hay outside. So I guess in that respect we are comparing apples to oranges. I understand the time factor and other advantages of wrap. since I put my hay in the barn wrap is not for me. My difference of opinion is all the problems that keep being mentioned and the fact M&W being refered to as junk when I have not had and any of the problems being mentioned. M&W may not be for everyone but they do make a good bale for me.

Not running down net wrap, it's great. But you can get about the same results with twine and a brome grass mix. Not necessarily the best, but it worked great for me. I rented some brome grass mixed hay ground for a few years and was greatly surprised in the small amount of spoilage with twine. Normally only about 1" and sometimes in extremes 2", stored outside JD baler.
