Subject: RE: Equipment for Beginning Farmer



Southern MN
Have used the 3020 in a pinch before and had to drop down to 4th, but the hills were steep and the 3020 is weighted down pretty good (11.000+ lbs). I typically bale in 5th with the 4020 in field and 4th in ditches with huge windrows. This is with a 567 which calls for 75 PTO hp tractor, a 568 should have similar power requirements since there are few differences. Baled along side a 4430/569 this summer and was slower which was mostly due to cycle time on the gate and not lack of power.

Edit to add:
The hills I baled with the 3020 where steep enough I went up and down and did not consider cross ways for fear of rolling the tractor and I have baled a lot of ditches.
