use either,,plastic wears the needle down ,, but you would have to bale 10k bales a yr for a decade before you would start havin problems ,,.. more square balers are sent down the river to new owners for knottin problems,, if you have problems find a PROIVEN qualified( NO Flunkie ) mechanic to make proper tunin adjustments ,, doesnt matter what brand or age , with correct tunin ,a 60 yr oldbaler can bale like a new one ,FOR MANY YEARS ,, OR BE JUNK IN adummies hands,, new balers?,, same story ,,

Tom, I ran plastic in my 230 and a 24T JD, both seemed to wear out faster than my Allis 303 that only runs sisal.

Plastic twine is also more abrasive and the old style knotters do not last long when you run it either. New style knotters are hardened and chromed so take the wear better.

Jim plastic is all I have ever ran in my Case balers with no problems, we sold plastic with them when new so at least the Case knotters were designed to run both cnt

We use plastic twine but the knotters can't be too loose. And use the 9000 ft bales as the 16000 ft bales of plastic twine are too thin and break. Very good baler if properly adjusted and maintained.
