I have a New Holland 310 baler that has been sitting outside for the past 4 years. What steps should I take to get this baler operational?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

If and when you do roll it over by hand, be sure to roll it over for many cycles. Watch the feeder time to plunger timing, just to make sure the plunger isn't going to whack the feeder tines.

Also, before you add twine and before you apply PTO power...make sure that you activate the knotters at least once or twice during the process of rolling it over by hand.
You should see the needles come up and the knotters should rotate and do everything that they normally would do to tie a knot...just won't be any twine there.

Also check to see that the plunger stop pops over into position to block the plunger when the needles are activating.

Only takes maybe a minute more and might save you from busting a set of needles when you apply PTO power.

You can also watch the knotter operation for stuck brass rollers and such much better and hand-cranked speed.
It's a little too fast to watch at PTO speed.

Clean out the chamber and roll it over a couple times by hand.There's a arrow on the flywheel for direction. Pull all the old twine out too. If it rolls over with no problem grease er up,hook the pto up to the tractor and ease out on the clutch and see if she works. There good old ballers. Made a little over 600 with mine today. Good Luck.

Your question is about like asking how high is uP? Or “what do I have to do to live to be 100”? I have not had a NH310 baler, but I believe the feeder mechanism is covered by the sheet metal of the baler like a 273. That should protect it from a lot of elements. In photos of that baler the knotters appear to be under a metal cover and if no rain has blown in and rusted them, they should be OK. The real challenge will be the bale chamber. If it was left full of hay and has been rained on a lot, the bale chamber will be heavily rusted and the plunger might be frozen in place by rust. I would start by making sure that the baler will rotate and the plunger is free. Empty the bale chamber and try turning it over by hand.

Remember there are a lot of ugly old rusty balers on the outside that are beautiful, strong and healthy on the inside.
