I've never understood the fascination with Krone or M&W chain balers. They seem more like a marriage made in hell that combines the worst characteristics of a fixed chamber baler with the mechanical nightmare of a chain baler.
If I wanted fixed chamber baler with silage capability I'd buy a Claas Rollant. If I wanted a hard core... I'd probably buy a Claas Variant.... or at least a modern belt baler of some variety. I really don't get what all the love of chainers is about. It's a low capacity nightmare of wearing, moving parts that makes a sh!t bale.

Myself i like the Krone bales . The least amount of problems and just go make hay straw corn stalks or wet bales . Yea we did have one break down due to a bearing failure but good god we are talking over 50000 bales . Yea we have to from time to time replace pick up teeth and i have had to rebuild the twine tensioner plates due to the amount of twine that has passed thru them over the years. But as far as the chain goes it has not been out of that baler . We do have the chain lube system on it and keep it working and FULL.

Which model of Krone do you use? The only problem with the chain that I have had has been the roller bearings but they are easy to change, affordable, and readily available.
