I've got an orange top rotobaler. Ran it once with the old belts. It made one bale then some belts broke. Replaced all the belts. Made one more bale then the lower belts started twisting. The new ones are 102", the old ones 97 1/2". I cut the new ones to 97.5. Now the hay runs right through the machine. I am baling tall straw. Help!

Its really critical that the lower belts be the full 102 inches and that they all be the same length. With shorter belts, the bale chamber won't latch shut and as you start a bale the straw will just pass between the rear belt rollers. I imagine your belts are also stretched very tight even when there is no bale in the chamber. With 102 inch belts, the belts should be somewhat loose until hay enters the rollers. Belt twisting is a common problem if your windrows are too narrow which causes uneven pressure on each belt when you start a new bale. Roto balers really do best in big, wide, heavy windrows. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Rats, that's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the info. I'll splice the pieces back in.
