Grandfield, Ok.
Decent older machine. Most bearings are off the shelf. Don't know if gehl still makes any special parts for them.

I had one a few years ago. It caught on fire twice. Dont know why I put the fire out, should have unhooked the tractor and let the bailer burn.

Could not make good tight bales with it no matter what. Bales would always sag after a few days. I had to tie the bales by moving a hyd cylinder back and forth, spent so much time looking back to watch it tie that my neck would be messed up all bailing season.

Hands down the WORST piece of equipment we ever had on this farm. There are better options as far a cheap bailers out there. Look for a JD 530 or 535. New Holland and Vermeer made some decent bailers of that age,

Dont walk, RUN AWAY!

Might be a sharp stick in the eye. Loose bales that sag and will lead to alot of bottom rot. Like the other poster 530 or 535 Deere. Stay away from 500 and 510 Deere. F series Vermeer and newer are a good choice.
