Round balers fitted for a WD-45

Could someone steer me in the direction of matching my WD-45 to a suited round baler? I only have found these in the 50hp and above class.

Pick up an AC Rotobaler, ideal for the WD!

I have used an IH 2400 behind a WD45. The main problem with that combo is the hills. On the flats it handled the machine easily. The only modification the tractor needed was the addition of a two way hyd valve. I rigged the return line to dump into the sump through the drain hole in the bottom so tou can still use your dipstick.

Jim, The WD45 is really not suited to the operation of a modern round baler. I think that you will find the hydraulic system will seriously limit your activity with the baler. Remember, the 45 is high pressure/low volume with a single one way remote outlet. The baler will need low pressure/high volume hydraulics with a least one 2 way outlet and possibly 2 outlets. John

I asked my friend the same question. He has a hesston 530 ... makes a small bale although I don't know the size (I think there was an International baler made by the same company .... He feels the wd45 would handle it fine as long as you weren't doing hilly fields.
Hope this helps

I agree the hydraulics would be lacking, could put on a front pump, problem solved. I know where a New Holland 848 round baler is for sale, makes 4"x4"(800lbs) bales, takes 40hp to run, the guy wants $4,000. I would suggest front weights on tractor too. Good Luck, Jeff

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
