With sisal, the very first thing you check is for rotted twine. What you describe sounds exactly like rotted twine. Works great for 3-4 bales, breaks 1 or 2 and so on. Try to see if the twine feels greasy at all. If it does, it's probably been wet or damp and deteriorated. If it was left in the baler over winter it's surely rotted.
FWIW- I went to plastic. No changes other than that and my missed bales dropped from 20-25% to 0. No more broken twine, no more missed knots, not more knotter problems. And I can leave it in the baler without worrying about moisture...mice, yes, moisture- no.
