Re: best small square blaer used?

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.
