I thought we had the world by the tail when Dad finaly GOT a square baler. He baled 10 to 15000 little rounds/year with an allis chalmers round baler from the 50"s well into the 70"s. He started me driving tractor between rows when I was old enuff to steer the tractor. He used a short handled pitch fork to load wagons with both a front and back rack, When I first started I had a hard time pushing in the clutch so he would get me started up the field, and he would load wagon from the ground from both sides. I can still see him jumping over the tounge of the wagon to get the bales on the other side before I got past them. He kept this up all day long sometimes. I am not exaggerating when I say he was by far the hardest working Man I have ever worked with. The old saying that hard work never killed anybody held fairly true for him he lived to be 87. He was still baling hay albeit little easy to handle square bales till the summer before he passed away. A lot of the reason I like this site so well is the storys people tell on here remind of the "good ol days" working with Dad.

I forgot about that, when I started driving the baler tractor, Farmall M, my brother would put it in gear and stack bales on the wagon, after a while I could push the clutch or the brake but not at the same time and it was tuff steering.
