Since you want to increase belt speed make sure there are no shims on pulley off of driveshaft at rear. You can shim the pulley that drives the thrower belts. from the pix you posted there are no shims bolted to the pulleys so they are either already shimmed or you will need to buy some. nh still makes them.

The 311 and 276 are both good, but I don't think the 311 has the capacity of the 276. I have a 316, which is also a very nice baler, and I believe similar in capacity to the 276.

my baler does not have anything in the front of it to adjust the kicker like my neighbors 276 has... were are the shims located in the back that I could adjust?

I have to assume you have a 54A thrower which I beleive is the only thrower that fits a 275. The thrower for a 276 is a different model, but not by much, many of the parts will interchange. Anyway, the belt off the baler flywheel that spins the thrower drive shaft.... the pulley (sheave) on the drive shaft opens and closes. You need to open it up as far as possible to get maximum thrower belt speed. Also, on the pulleys (sheaves) above the thrower belts themselves....look close and you can see they are two halves bolted together. You should have shims bolted to the sides of the sheaves that you can remove and insert between the sheaves to get additional speed.

I had a NH 269 with 53A thrower. Had no problem throwing a full size bale to the back of 18 foot wagons at 540 pto rpm. As stated, there are shims on the thrower drive that you can move to change the size (speed) of the sheave.

First off your bale thrower should have at least two speed adjustments- one at the flywheel and then on the thrower itself you can vary the size of the sheaves to speed up the belt speed. Sounds like you may need a manual for the baler thrower. An adjusted thrower should have no problem flinging bales to the back of your wagon.
I dont think a 278 or 310 is much of an upgrade. A 276 or 311 is a fine way to go. Good condition 311's are a little easier to find than a 276. Most of those have been worn out. I myself am looking for a nice 311. Very popular baler.
