3rd cut hay of October 2017. Very light yield but fine quality hay it made nonetheless.
Wife eagerly asked to run the baler which was an unexpected surprise.

Nice to see an old M working. Very common around here for a tractor to have the wheels dished in.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I do not think the other poster intended to imply that the treads were reversed. I think he was merely pointing out that since the treads were not reversed those center disc cones being turned in were likely not the remnants of a quickie measure by me to make it fit on a trailer for me to haul it home.

That all said that poster was kinda correct as I did have to do the quickie thing a few years ago to get it home and my tires were backwards when I did that to make it fit on trailer. Once home I configured the unbolted the center dishes from the rims and oriented them to way I wanted in order to get the width I needed.

Actually Both sides have the dishes turned in because I turned them that way. Only way I could get the M tractor as narrow as desired which is roughly 72"outside of tire to outside of tire. I can get my ole farmall h to the same width with the rim dishes out.

I like the 72" width for all the following Reasons:

a) The NH 65 is a compact baler with a short tongue as it only has a 2 joint PTO shaft compared to most balers that have a 3 joint shaft and a much longer tongue. A wider tractor will run over the windrow NH 65.

b) This width works well with my old jd 594 rake for using just the tail end of it for flipping windrows without running over the windrow in the process. The m is not really my frontline raking tractor but when you operate with antique iron it is always good to have suitable back-ups.

c) This width works decent with my 5' bushhog. wheel track is wider than cut but only 6" per side is no problem

d) This width just barely fits on my heavy equipment trailer if I ever need to haul.

Why is the passenger side rear wheel dished in, even the tread is reversed, so this was not remnant of it getting to fit on a trailer, is it to accommodate windrow?

Lot of hay has been baled with a M tractor. I add a few more to the total every year myself. Nice pictures.
