Great pictures. Guess those were taken back when it actually rained. I got a question about the belt-driven implements, why were the belts so long? I know there has to be a good reason but I'm a little too slow to know it.

Also the long belts could be flipped to change direction of the driven item.

One reason the belts were long, is to get the tractor away from the hay stack or straw stack so the heat won't catch the material on fire, and the other reason is, longer the belt the more pressure is put on the pulleys and the reduction of slippage is greatly increased

They were also long to generate a more even energy to the baler, sort of like having a huge fly-wheel on the old hit&miss engines.

Thanks, Harvey2. Question answered. I thought the distance might be one factor. Didn't think about increased belt tension though. That's why YT is such a great place, the combined sum of knowledge is limitless.
