Many balers, at the end of their life being used were left out in the weather with ales still in them. This of course caused a lot of rust in the bale chamber. I bought a 15 year old JD 336 thirty years ago. I was assured that it had always been shedded but I should have looked more closely. It had a lot of rust under the knotters and under the plunger-head runners.

Good point that - so the first piece of advice is always remove all the bales at the end of the season and dry the chamber. A bit of anti corrosion treatment might also be worthwhile, or even a squirt of wd40 to disperse the moisture.

I started clearing out the hay after the first year of owning my 1960 Case bailer. It was a job involving long pry bars, and it took tome, and it was always in the summertime when I had finished with it here in Okla, But I did it. What finally happened with this one, AND I suspect with most OLD balers is that parts of their knotting system has worn out, and either there are no parts available for it, or its owner dosnt know how to repair it and just got a newer one that worked. As I reported on another posting, I called NH in Tulsa and they said that some parts on their old bailers were no longer available. That included in the knotter system
