Subject: HESSTON 4570 INLINE SMALL SQUARE BALER


scmn
Gonna go look at one this week. Been sitting on the dealers lot for almost 2 yrs. Kinda has me wondering what could be wrong with it or is it just that the small balers are becoming obsolete. Its located in northeast Iowa, I don`t bale alot of hay but it is time for me to update. Was wondering if the belts on the thrower could be bad from sitting out for 2 yrs. How does the hydraulic tension work on these balers when the windrow volume changes. Have no experience with the inlines so any advice on the good and bad of these would be very much appreciated. TIA

We used to have a Case IH inline baler. It was made by Hesston, I just am not sure of the model number of it. We traded it off about ten years ago on a Hesston big square baler. I don't remember alot about the baler as far as the thrower and tension. What I do remember is that for a small square baler it could really eat the hay. I don't ever remember having any trouble with the tension on bales when windrow volume changed. I always thought that it made a very consistent bale time after time. The belts could be bad, but depending on the deal for the baler, you should be able to get them new aftermarket and they are probably not that high priced. You know I personally think Hesston has a good thing with the inline small balers. How many big square balers do you see with the offset design. I think it is a very efficient way to get hay into the camber. Less moving parts in my opinion is a good thing. Good Luck

Only time we change tension is on different types of hay, windrow thickness has no effect. Technically you should be speeding up and slowing down to maintain your 12-16 strokes a bale anyway but I've baled many with 30 strokes and as few as probably 6 without breaking a shear bolt. The tension is just a cylinder that pushes the top middle of the chamber down to slow the bale movement out of the chamber.

The hydraulic tension works well as long as the little gear pump on the side of the baler is still good. They tend to be the first thing to go out. Just adjust the regulator to the density you would like for normal conditions and the hydraulics go to work when the hay becomes dryer or tougher.

Just make sure the pickup is in good shape. The teeth on the pickup tend to be bend backwards if it has baled a lot of tough hay or rocks/ terraces. If im correct the pickup feed auger spins upward instead of down(the 4590s and 8545 caseih have a 4 bar pickup with an auger spins down like a combine table auger would) so it is importand that the pickup teeth are in good shape to keep feeding the hay against the auger.
You might make sure the knotters have been greased and see if the dog springs are broke or not. It seems like a little thing but most of the time. the bolt that holds the dog and spring onto the baler is froze to its bushing, and they can be a pain in the rear to change.

There is not a 14x18 baler that will outbale a 4590!

I've had a 4590, 3 7115s & now 3 1839s? I think.. The 4590 did 250-300,000 bales with little problems. The 3 7115s were made in winter 07-08, they were "interesting" from the get go, dealer spent 4-5 days getting them to work, seemed like the factory crew"forgot" to tighten things. Had more problems with those 3 balers than any haying eqpt I ever had. Last summer had all 3 in the shop at once 1 night. So bad I traded all 3 last winter for 3 new 1's, hope they will be as good as the 4590 was.
The balers have no problems with heavy windrows, they just don't like slugs/poor windrows.
I asked the Hesston rep why didn't they just ship the balers in peices if they wanted the dealer to take them apart & check everything. The Dealer took the new 1s apart & checked everything to make sure I didn't have a repeat of the 7115s.
The 2 7434s I got in 08 were not assembeled too well either, but nothing like the 7115s

i know in my are i have seen these balers about given a way at auctions because they are not a john deere or new holland. i don't know if that could be the case. but i think they are the best balers on the market. just do the normal maintenance and it should be a good baler for you.
