A combine, a planter, and a baler a person really needs to own a manual for if at all possible.
Those are such specialty machines, with very complicated settings and adjustments......
So, it was probably good advice, something I might have said.
I understand your frustration, we need to help each other.
But, lot of questions are really hard to explain or know where your skill level is, and on those 3 machines, it just gets tough.
If you have the manual, we can rough in or zero in some help to each other, and know you will be able to follow the small details in the manual.
Without the manual, its a daunting task to put down every step, remind you of the timing issues, go through every adjustment and so on, as one affects another. Put a lot of pressure on a person trying to help, a step done wrong could cost you some dough......
You are kinda asking a lot of people too when you haven't put any effort into knowing your machine, to get a manual on one of the complicated ones.
But I know, when a person wants some simple quick advice, being told to get a book and read is not what a person showed up for!
Hope you get the baler going, didnt notice your message, will have to go look for it.
