Help! From what I've read, a 3000 FORD will pull a 7' Haybine with no problem. I'm going to an auction in the morning and they have a NH 488 haybine. Can my 3000 Ford handle this? What is a reasonable price to pay? Thanks for any input.

Difficult to take advice from guys who don't know a haybine from a baler??????? Your 3000 will do just fine running a 488. Steep hills will cause a side draft problem, but common sense will keep you safe most places. Flat or rolling land will be absolutely no trouble.

I pull an International 430 shaft drive baler with a 56 Ford model 600 with no problem, and that's not quite as big as your 3000. A good used square baler ought to bring anywhere from $500-2,000 - and maybe more. I personally think a really good one in good shape that's been under a shed and well maintained (look for rusted out loading platform), including good tires should be worth $1,500 plus to someone who expects to use it for, say a minimum of 1,000 bales or more each season. You should be able to tell if it has been greased just for show or really has been serviced. Probably for every year it sets unused, the chances of problems with the gears, drive, or knotters goes up by 20%, so I would feel very comfortable if it was used last season. It would be really good if you could see it operated or have some sort of operational warranty from the seller, maybe just a "sold as serviceable agreement." RKS

well - don't really think you'll get much help in the guarantee area, although it is worth asking about before you bid. If a lot of people are there and more than a couple other bidders, you may have to back down. They may have an inside bidder and I generally see the auctions, particularly this time of year, too strong for old baling equipment. You may find an individual who is just ready to convert to rounds, or get out of hay altogether, on a private basis, with a good baler for sale reasonably. Where I am in the southeast, a number of cattle operations are moving to chickens and selling out the hay equipment, leading to some decent used equipment.RKS

Today's Featured Article - What Oil Should I Use? - by Francis Robinson. I keep seein this question pop up over and over again in discussion groups all over the web. As with many things there are often several right answers and a few wrong ones. Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ? Some of them only bring their noses down out of the air long enough to look down them anyway. If you are like me you are only doing this old tractor stuff because you enjoy it. You ...
