I am interested in the JD 336 balers ( I have an older 24t that I like) but need to upgrade. What are the best balers similar to the JD 336 out there? Like new holland?

I started with a McCormick 45T, and moved up to a JD 24T, big improvement! I replaced the JD 24T with a NH 315, another huge improvement! I upgraded from the NH 315 to a NH 570, again, some improvement! I have cut back my production to the point that I will not need to replace the 570. Many rave about the "inlines", but I'm not interested!

JMHO, Dave

Well with any luck I will have a Hesston 4550 to bale with this summer. It's been a very long search - all over this place and one popped up about 100 miles from me. Appears to be in excellent condition, but dealer will go through it. Current owner is paying for that service.

Bought my 275 11 years ago for $1500. Put 700 into it including tires. Have baled 15,000 bales with it and only had to make a new aluminum tooth for it. Oh, I broke about 5 shear bolts.

I've got a 327 Deere. Also have a Ford 532. Any of them will work if they're maintained and setup correctly. I find the Deere slow... and if you push it... prone to breakage. The Ford was in many respects a better baler, but the Deere has a lot better parts support today.
I have a strong inclination towards an inline if I was buying another one, otherwise a NH570 or larger.

Like we talked about I still think there is something wrong with your 327 Rod, your experience with it is completely different than my 336 and 348 which both have a lot of miles on them.

Don't fret Rod is biased against JD equipment to the point I wonder why he ever buys anything with green paint on it.

I run a JD 336, but others have already stated a lot of other good options. My view on used balers is that you have to look at what kind of shape it is in regardless of the color it is painted. You can take two identical balers from the same dealer and sell them to different people and a few years later they may be complete opposites as far as condition.

For older balers, a lot of it depends on how hard the baler is run, how well it is maintained, etc.

I have a 336 and two 327 JD. I like the 327 a lot better. I'm not sure what the differences are other than the pick-up and the long tongue. I have a parts 336 and the parts seem to interchange with the 327. We've always run with the JD. I'm not familiar at all with New Holland. If your used to JD I'd say you're on the right track with sticking with what you know.

I went from a MF 9 to the NH 273, I like the new Holland much better but it is still an old machine.

Last year my IH46 broke down(not that good anyway)and I borrowed my friends backup baler and finished a small field. It's a NH273. After a couple of adjustments it baled excellent and I offered to buy it. He's still mulling it over and sez I can use it again this year as I only bale about 5-600 yearly. I sold my IH46 to a used eqpt dealer for $300 which I thought was pretty good. If I find a NH that's nice and bales good, I think I will get it.
His other baler is a Vicon with accumulator.

Bought mine at auction about 10 years ago.. Said it had had only 10,000 through it.. questioned that but the paint was still pretty good in the pickup area.. I bought it for 1100. And it has been fantastic.. I dont run many either maybe 3000-3500 or so a year.

I have a New Holland 316 with a thrower that I bought 5 or 6 years ago for $2,500. I put another $500 in to it, and it's been a great baler. Decent capacity and very reliable. I have a lot of steep ground, and it's heavy enough that the wagons don't push it around

I have a NH 570 no matter how heavy the row is I have never had to stop to let the baler catch up never broke a shear pin in the 11 years I have had it.

For standard small square balers New Holland is probably going to be way more popular than anything else. I have had Ford JD 336 and now MF 224. MF sold far fewer than the others so few people know about them, but it sure does pull the hay in better than the JD. I used to break a shear bolt on the JD in the same spot every year, no matter how I crept up on the extremely heavy spot. I have never broken one there with the MF. Two years ago I inadvertently got into two double windrows at the same time working around a tree. Rather than have to clean the whole thing out if I shut it off, I let it chew and it sucked it all in and spit out three bales in six feet! One was right on top of another.

We had a 224 as well - sure was an aggressive feeder but we had the opposite experience with shear pins. The 224 went through boxes of them where the 336 had the same one for oh 50000 bales.

The 224 even wore out the little inserts for the shear bolt and the flywheel bush from shearing so much.
