Complete rundown on New Holland Balers

I've tried (to no avail) suggesting to YT that a page be set up for dating and describing different makes and models of equipment. I know you guys have all the information needed, we just need to get it all together in one spot. Let's start with New Holland balers. If you look back through the history, you see someone is asking nearly every day about a different model of baler. They are asking how old, what size, good and bad points etc. I've got the same questions and would love to see the answers in one place. Can you guys please help me out? (Noteably Steve from N.H. Pa: I've seen you saying you could go on and on about NH balers, here's your chance. I'm asking you to go on and on!)

Model #65 1960-1965 14x16 bales
#66 '52-'55 14x16 wadboard feeder instead of aluminum fingers-ve wood on plunger-ve
#67 '58-'61 14x16
#68 '56-'58 14x16 wood on plunger-ve
#69 ?

Some of the above balers had wooden parts on their plungers(-ve means this is an undesirable item) However, most of these models were available as a Super: all Supers have rollers instead of wood on their plungers. #S66
#S67 What else does Super mean?
#S68
#S69

#268 '64-'68 14x16 very good baler, but slow
#269 '64-'68 same as #268 except longer tongue with extra U-joint.+ve
#270 '61-'63 14x16
#271 '61-'63 same as #270 with longer tongue and extra U-joint+ve
#272 '64-'68 14x16 very good, but slow #273 '72-'77 14x16 very good, but slow
#275 ?
#276 '72-'76
#278 ?
#279 ?

All balers models started after 1963 had the longer tongue with the extra U-joint(3 total)for better turning ability.

The above balers were made to run at 61-66 plunger strokes per minute which makes them 'low capacity' compared to some later balers which were made to run much faster.

A Super Sweep pick-up was optional on some of these balers. The Super Sweep has 6 bars of teeth instead of 4, and has more teeth closer together than the standard pick-up. The Super Sweep works better with less waste than the standard pick-up.

#310 '78-'82 14x16 nearly same as #273 except designed to run at 75 strokes per minute (spm) instead of 66spm like the 273. Feeder track assemblies blow apart at this speed, and some plungers will break. Should be ran 20% below recommended speed.
#311 '75-'89 14x16 followed #310 Great baler because it was designed to withstand it's recommended strokes per minute(spm)
#315 '75-'82 14x16 see #310 should be ran 20% below recommended speed
#316 see #311 followed #315 great baler
#320 Super high capacity see #310 recommended 105 spm should only be ran at 90 spm
#326 see #311 followed #320 great baler


That's all I know at this time. Please feel free to add or make corrections. Let's complete the entire list detailing any options, good and bad points. Then we will see if YT will consider the idea for other implements and/or tractors.

Below, latta mentioned a book which has a chart like I have proposed here. In an e-mail, he said he would try to get me a copy of the chart. If I get the chart, I will do my best to get it onto YT. Burrhead's link to New Holland is also very helpful, and is where most everyone should go if they are needing an owner's manual.

I don't think the NH website mentions the model 80.

Thanks guys for your help. I knew the information was out there.

Nobody has mentioned the Model 80, I think it was produced from 1946 - 1948. I have two of them, one still works, the other for parts.

The model 80 was made between 1950-1955 from the official NH book It was the first wire tie and was a very complicated twister. Hope this helps.

I got side tracked about the time I saw how good the H turned out and missed the 68.

The only thing I would advise about it is too use good quality grease and don't be stingy with it. If the 68 is kept greased and adjusted it will still last longer than a brand new today JD.

Around here they think JD parts are gold but NH still has 1/2 way decent parts prices.

Yea I know about the JD stuff. I went to 3 auctions looking for balers. A couple of 24t's and a 14t were around. The 24's went for over $500 and the 14 went for $450. I just said NAH after they went above $175. They pay big bucks for any thing green around here.
I would like to truck a few cheap 14t's up here and unload them on these suckers.

I have a manual for 67's and super 67's. The book says the 67 was rated for 70 strokes per minute. From what the book shows, the super 67 was a lot like the 68. With a longer tongue than the plain 67. Hope this can help someone.

Good start James, I have alot of info on the old balers, the 73 was made from Dec. 1940-Nov. 1943, 16X18 bale, Wisconsin engine driven, metal auger and conveyor feeder to a wooden wadbord and had a canvas pickup, the 75 was from Dec. 1943- Feb. 1946, same style as 73, the 76 was from March 1946-1948 same style as 73, the 77 was made from 1948-1952 had a finger pickup, metal auger feeder to a metal wadboard, engine driven and through 1950 all balers used the month and year for the last 4 digits of the serial#, the super 77 was made from 1953-1955 same style as the 77 and pto drive was an option. I believe the super 66 through super 68 still had wood rails for the plunger, but the super 69 and super 77 had rollers, the 272 was a engine driven only baler.

The model 65 baler makes 12 x 16 sized bales. A chart like you propose exists in the book A CENTURY OF FORD AND NEW HOLLAND FARM EQUIPMENT. It lists the model, first year, tie (wire/twine), strokes, pickup widith, drive (PTO, engine or self propelled) engine make, cylinders/cuin, HP.

If you have that book, would you please enlighten those of us who do not have it with some more information! I will reenter this post when it can be more complete if I can get those of you with the accurate info to help me out. If you don't want to type that much, take it to a copy machine and mail it to me, I'll enter it here to help everyone else. Let me know if you need my address.
Thanks

I, too, would like to see a similar set up regarding implements. Accessing information based on the type of implement would make future research easier. Thanks to YT for the work they're doing.

Thanks for this post, it is very helpful. I do hope other folks with a lot of NH info will add to it, but for now I'm printing it and using the info as I look to buy a "new" baler.

thanks again,
Tom

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
