WOW, that is 9 seconds per bale. Would love to see the setup in action. Got a million questions about how they handle the small squares that fast, how many people working at it, etc. Tom

Right now they have a plywood trough made that feeds the bales from the chute on the baler straight up to the back of the trailer. From there they have several guys in the trailer stacking. The man in charge of the project is really wanting to get things going at full speed and then getting a Bale Baron to take care of the majority of the labor, and if yesterday was any indication of things to come he'g going to have to either do that or get about twice as many guys. I say that because all of them were saying that it was all they could do to keep up once things got rolling good.

That's under 7 bales per minute. 9 bales per second would be 32,400 per hour. He said 400 per hour.

Farmer Boy,
It is just math - - - no secrets.
Start with 400 bales per hour as Wayne said.
60 sec per min X 60 min in an hour gives you 3600 seconds per hour.
Divide 3600 seconds by 400 bales and you get:

9 seconds per bale
I said 9 sec/bale, you said 9 bales/sec.

I didn't read that very closly. I thought you said 9 bales per second. My mind couldn't comprehend what that would look like. 9 seconds per bale sounds perfectly reasonable for a newer baler.

Farmerboy may be able to do math, but his reading is dyslexic.
