I recently found a John Deere No.5 stalk chopper mounted on a John Deere 24T bailer. I am having hard time finding information about this being a factory build attachment. I was wondering how many had gotten produced and if anyone had every ran or seen one in operation, Thanks.

Thank you all very much thatís been helpful. What would you expect the value of this chopper to bring as I have never seen any others come up for sale before?

I saw one on Craigslist in about 2008 listed for $1200 baler and all. Was near New Ulm, MN.

I agree some JD PC's are difficult to locate on JD's website. I think the equip search function is near worthless.

I used to pull one of these around as a kid. My grandfather bought one of the first ones. Dusty, dirty, loud. Used to be a 1 inch layer of fine dust settled everywhere on the baler. We had one and the neighbors down the road had one. The neighbors had a ejector, we didn"t. We usually baled as long as the weather allowed. Some years 500 bales some years 3000. We used to bale behind a 4 row combine. We just baled the 2 middle rows where all the trash fell out of the combine.


Years ago in the early days of the internet, I had read something that most of them were sold in Southern MN and No. Iowa. They were aimed at dairy farmers that had no small grains for straw.

The JDparts website has the parts book listed. I have looked at it before but I found it in a odd way. Punching in No.5 got me nothing. I think alot of the parts are in common with the 16A flail chopper which JD made for years.

Once the breadloaf stackers came along the 24t saw little use. It sat in the shed from about 1988 till 2006 when my cousin sold it.

We also had a 16A. If the stalks were to wet to bale we would chop some and use for feed. In 1976 the stalks were the only feed. Chopped or baled every last one.

I agree with the dust and the dirt.There were also quite a few sold in PA and Ohio.We paid $800 for ours mounted on a 24t without thrower about six years ago.We added a thrower and had to do some knotter work on the baler.Great bedding for in the dairy barn in the winter.

Found my missing dealer price list. In 1966 a new No.5 listed for $654,24t parts were $74 and hand lift was $19 or hyd. lift $30.They were built in Deere's Ottumwa Iowa factory and fit 14t,24t or ws,214 and 224t or ws balers.The only sales brochures I have seen for these are listed in the brochures for the balers.

We have one and use it to bale 1000-1500 bales of stalks every year.Do not try to use it to bale standing stalks,todays corn hybrids will not dry down enough for safe storage. We cut ours and allow them to dry before raking and baling.The flails do a good job of picking up and shredding,which makes great bedding.Do not make big windrows,we rake 2 or 3 rows.In the past 10 or so years I have seen a dozen or more of these machines.If you are putting one on a baler make sure the knotters are in very good condition,stalks are hard to keep tied.Plungerhead extentions are also a good idea.

I think there is a brochure for sale on eBay about a No.5 stalk chopper.
