For NH's - the 310's or more capasity 315's were very good . . .. lost track of the model numbers that replaced them.
Either of those models will dance around that 67. . . . .
THrowers seem to add around $1000 bucks to a baler
|New Holland 315 is twice the baler as your 67. Look at plunger speeds, width of pickup and dealer availability for all brands. Lots of Deere 24T's still being used as well as 336 and 337. My experience was that a NH 273 was the same as 310 and just didn't have increased capacity from the 67. |
Been around both belt and pan throwers, like the pan better for bale placement in wagon and bit more gentle on the bale.

|I wouoldn't recommend a NH 310, built a bit light. The 311 and 315 are both good balers. JD 336/337 also good reliable machines.|
|any where to find plunger speed and etc on the web|
No Mans Land , Cimarron co. OK.
|New Holland 316 and 570, John Deere 337 and 338, Hesston 4570. The Hesston was also sold as a CaseIH 8530 and a New Idea whose number escapes me at the moment.|
I don't know what your choices in local dealers are but here its either JD or NH/Case. Very few Hesston dealers. I've had them all, first choice is NH/Case 541 really eats hay, fairly forgiving on feed rate and been good to us. Hesston has faster plunger speed, best on making a square bale, most forgiving on feed rate, but absolutely hate a big or clumpy windrow, bust the feeder shear pin in a heartbeat when you take in a clump. JD was my least favorite of the bunch, did not like making a square bale, very finicky about feed rate or it will make banana bales. Also, I may be biased against the JD because the dealer support of the green was very bad.
|New Holland 570 or a 575 depending on how big your wind rows are. Our 570 is maxed out width wise on our Deere 9500 wind row. The 575 has a wider pickup. Its the same baler otherwise.|
|Any in-line Hesston will impress you. They put out a great bale, and you'd be surprised how much nicer it is to straddle the windrow! We used to have an old Massey square baler than was a real SOB.|

|x2 on the Hesston inline. Coming from a Deere guy these are great balers if you have a dealer that is close. Straddling the windrow is really nice... Only problem we have had with ours is waiting on parts...waited a week this summer for knotter parts during wheat harvest...not cool!!! |

|Go with a NH 575. The CIH 540 is the same as a 575, only painted CIH red.|
|NH 575. Nice wide pickup and a heavy built baler.|
closest thing to heaven on earth, St.James MN
|Depends on how many bales you plan to make. A NH 575 is a great machine but if you only make a couple thousand a year, you can do the same with NH 316. Both great balers, as well as any inline Hesston. The 575 will kill two guys on a rack.|
|X3 on the hesston/case IH inline. You'll love straddling the windrow and they have the widest pickup of any baler out there. I ran a 336 JD before buying a hesston and never looked back.|
|I use a 1997 Welger AP630 |
Today I have averaged 327 bales/hr for 5 and a half hours. Should do better tomorrow.
|Hesston without a question. A 4655 will also work, they made them from the early nineties until recently, ours is an early '90s model with original knotters and only a handful of bearings replaced, has more than 100K bales probably less than 200K. Original driveline is starting to knock enough that some of the crosses will finally need to be replaced. Did almost 30K bales 2 years ago. Other than brand loyalty I don't see why everyone isn't running them.|
Summit County, Ohio
|I just finshd today with straw and used a Hesston good easy machine to use, we usd to have an old NH 273 hayliner, and having an inline baler is so nice.|
|Ive got a 336 JD, been a good baler, only complaint as the combines have gotten bigger and the windrows wider to bale behind for straw, the pickup head isnt wide enuff for the windrows, the 337 on up has a wider head.|
|Larry in AB|
|That's a small model so anything like a 278, 320, or 326 for older balers in NH would be a huge jump. I run NH 575's now, they work very well and are quite durable. Lots of JD's and Inline Hesstons around too.|
