What sisal is best to use in this square baler? Which poly would be best to try if I didn"t want to use sisal?

Don't even think about changing you billhooks for a change in twine. Scroll down and read the other threads on this subject. Lots of good information.

The biggest difference between 7K and 9600 is diameter of the twine. I understand that there are some places where you can get, say, 7000 in 110 and 130 lbs breaking strength so I imagine the diameter differs there too. Consistency in poly twine if what makes it so much better than sisal these days.

The bill hooks I don't know about having to change. I was told by some people my old NH 68 wouldn't work with plastic without changing the bill hooks. It works better than ever with the same bill hooks it's always had.

What is the reason for changing the bill hooks when you switch to poly?
If I do stay with sisal what is the difference between 7000 and 9000?
