that baler is worth what maybe $200?

A little condescending don't you think? The guy is just trying to get his knotter working. Not looking for opinions of how much his baler is worth. My FIL loves riding around the field on his TO-30 with his 14T baling hay even though I'm passing him every few rows with my faster baler.

I was just saying that its probably not worth it to take it to a dealer. Im not saying that it isnt a good baler or any thing I am just saying that at $85 to $100 dollars an hour its something that is old enough that yes a mechanic at a dealer would and could have a hard time timing it because the old guys that know how to time and fix them good are starting to dissappear. I am a mechanic at a dealer and do not really apprecieate the line " I am paying a mechanic to learn how to work on the 14t" or what ever it said. If its so easy why didnt he fix it him self. As a mechanic I can say that I learn new stuff every day and yes people pay for that, So what. I could time that 14t but it would take me a while so be it. he could just buy a manual and do it him self as well. We dont guarentee the work on those old balers because so often they have other wore out parts and it is cost prohibitave to replace all parts and those other worn out parts can cause what we fixed to break or have problems down the road.

I figured if they got it working for for $1000 I'd have $1200 in a working reliable baler. Expensive for a 14T but good enough for the small acrage and tractor that will be pulling it. I could easily have spent $3000+ on a 336 and still had to spend the $1000 to get it to work properly too.

The problem is I don't want to spend $1200 and have a baler that doesn't work at all when I had a baler that I could get by with (if I had too) for $200.

I might end up having it out with the dealership when I explain to them that I don't pay people work on stuff - I pay them to fix it. If I'm paying $100 an hour for a mechanic to work on something I expect a trained profession to be doing the work. I could read the manual and not know what I'm doing for free in my shed.
