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.
