Would like to see one of those roto balers at work. Never were many around here even though we are in cattle country. Ranchers that used them usually left some of their grass land that wasn't too rough to bale for winter use. They would just leave the bales lie where they dropped and turn the cattle in to graze on them. I do remember watching a neighbor baling with one in the 1960's behind a JD 4020 and my first thought was "that has to be extremely hard on a clutch, stopping and starting every couple of minutes" but it turned out the 4020 was a power shift (which I later purchased from the neighbor and I still have and use regularly). We aren't in corn country, even though there is much more planted each year, it seems, so I have not actually ever seen a pull type picker in use. Thanks for the post.

A neighbor had a Roto Baler that he pulled behind a stem wind spoke wheeled John Deere A. That was quite a feat. He'd have to pull the clutch back,take it out of gear,then push the clutch back ahead for every bale. Dad bought one and used it behind his Oliver 66 with live power. Not bad to bale with,but after just one winter of feeding them,he bought another square baler and got rid of that thing.
