Bought a 224t baler and havent used it yet. Its in good shape and was well cared for. Is there anything i should look out for before I hook up the tractor and run it? Any safety stops or latches? I dont wont to turn it on and break the needles or anything. I was told it baled this season and ran great. Just want to be safe rather than sorry.

I agree with what sideconsole4020guy stated except I only utilize 2 people(1 to hold tension on both twines & 1 to turn flywheel).

Leave the twine in there. the twine should be throught the needles take the ends and tie them to the bottom of the trip wheel shaft through the chamber then grab the twine infront of the trip wheel shaft, pull 3 ft of twine up, have 2 people keep good pressure on the twine and have a 3rd rotate the baler over and then trip the knotters and watch the needles come up and watch the knotters do there job, the 3rd person will have to be strong and keep the baler moving fast when its tying or the knotters might not work. This is what we do after we work on the knotters or anything on the baler at the shop I work at

The twine will probably get fouled up on the billhook, but at least you can watch it through the knotter cycle to see that the twine is picked up properly by the twine disc and the billhook.

Plunger head safety stop pivots in/out on LH side of bale chamber controlled by a rod that attaches to needle frame. The rod slides up/down in a tube that may require lubrication.

thanks, Is it gonna be ok to turn the flywheel over by hand and watch the knotters if the baler is twined? Or should I take the twine out, didnt know if twine would wrap up on twine disc or elsewhere since theres no hay in the baler.

turn it by hand first and trip the knotter and turn it through a knot cycle. If everything is good, hook it up to a tractor and run it through a cycle at idle, if everything is still good, crank it up and go to work!
