Hi guys, Just wondering "back in the day" what AC tractors the Roto-Balers (without their own engine)were designed for? I ran across an ad on here for a roto baler and I"m getting it to mess around with, but wasn"t sure what tractor(s) they were made for. This site, as you all know, is the greatest source of YT info. around....thanks for answering everyone"s questions!

My grandfather used to custom bale for all his neighbors with a roto baler and a WC for many years. No wonder his left knew was so bad when he got older, he pushed that clutch down MANY times to get her back going after the bale was wrapped. Dad says they baled 10,000 roto bales a year, just for the family...then they did it for the neighbors too! Sounds like a major chore now. I plan on using my D19 on mine, when I get it field ready, should be plenty of power!

Your question should have been: "What tractor was designed for the AC Roto-Baler?" Easy answer. The Allis WD. If ever a machine was built that cried out for a live or independent PTO, it was the infamous AC Roto-Baler that, in heavy hay, had to be brought to a stand still every few feet but needed to be kept running.

The first year of production was 1947. The first working unit for Allis was 1941.

Would you believe they where made for the farmer that had a very small tractor like then Allis B/C, 8N ford etc. It was allisis answer to the guy that wanted to bale hay but only had one of the small tractors that would not handle a square baler. I baled a lot of small rounds pulling it behind a B Allis and a B JD

Hi Old, Did the rotbaler you used with the Allis B have it"s own engine or was it run off the PTO? Thanks, yet again.

Ran it off the PTO. It was all the poor little tractor wanted but it did the job

I knew a guy who used a CA but Dad said he ran the brake on the baler to loose to make tight bales the would turn water as he charge per bale not per ton and the loose brake made more bales.

I had an uncle who was an Allis guy, and if I remember right, he was using WD45's when the baler was introduced.

"if I remember right, he was using WD45's when the baler was introduced." A mentioned the baler came before the WD45. Sometime in the early seventies Allis reintroduced the roto baler. It has the "white top".

Dad bought his Roto-Baler in "48 or "49, (baler one year, 60 combine the other- don"t remember which came first- everything was on a waiting list after the war, but neighbor"s son was a mechanic at the shop, and his dad got one that Dad should have gotten first- Dad waited another year.) Was designed for the typical two-plow tractor, Dad ran it on the WC with no live power until he got the WD45 in "56. Smaller tractor could pull them if it had the engine on the baler. WD with live power came out in "48, WD45 in "53.
