my friendly advice, if you have hay to cut and bale, buy you a john deere or new Holland baler, to use as your primary baler.
buy the old ford and work on it as you have time, if you ever get it broken loose and bailing hay, it can be your backup bailer
"that is just my advice"
if you have never worked with an old baler, they can get on your nerves fast,
just some advice for someone who has hay on the ground and you really need to get it bailed before it gets rained on.
