After running the square baler for a bit, I idled the tractor down and shut it off. It then released a mighty back fire! It did that both times the other day while testing the baler. I used it several days ago for a couple hours box blading and it didn't back fire when I shut it off. Rich? Lean? Timing? Thanks!

Just let it cool down a little more before turning off, you probably had unburned fuel get into the hot exhaust manifold.

The baler was working it harder and the engine was hotter. Letting it idle a minute or two before shutting it down after it has been working hard to cool it down will take care of the backfire. Late timing can cause a backfire too but late timing is more likely to cause dieseling when the engine is shut down
