Your friend going form the CIH 8460 to the JD 535 kind of tells you what he thinks of it. LOL The CIH baler will work but they are not a great high capacity baler. Also it is kind of an orphan now in that your parts will come through AGCO as the Hesston line is no longer under CIH.

The monitor not having everything working is an issue. The kick bar is not. We do not use them here on the hills we have, you have to back up and set the bale so it does not roll off the hill anyway.

Ended up getting a JD 530 from a local dealer for about a 1/3rd less. I just wasn't comfortable with the condition of the Case/IH baler. Guess I'll find out how I did on Tuesday, hay should be dry by then.
If high school kids weren't so lazy and spoiled I could just keep using the small sguare baler. But... can't seem to find help for more than 3 or 400 bales at a time.

dmiller: If that JD 530 is in good condition you will like the job it will do. That baler was the first "real" round baler JD ever built. The 500 and 510 where not good balers.

As for square bale help. It is getting hard to find. One issue is in most farm country there are not many kids on the farm anymore. With the farms getting larger and larger there just are fewer farm kids. Darn few "city" kids ever helped much in hay anyway.

We used to put up 40-50K of hay and straw every year. You could not do it with manual labor anymore around here. There just is not the help. I really looked hard at one of the bale banders/cuber(attaches to the baler and makes a ten bale cube) 10 years ago. The small square market just is not good enough around here any more to justify the cost.
