mohoff - 6/12/2019 08:11 I like that. Is it easier to pull Baron separately than hooked up to baler? What do you do to get consistent length of bale?
Good morning Adam -
I would not want a baron hooked behind a baler whatsoever. That would be way too long of a train in some of our fields, and if the baler misses a bale, or goes down, everything stops. The Baron like ours will keep up running behind two balers. We are looking at adding a second baler because of that.
Our NH has hydraulic tension and the longer bale chamber which helps consistency. But we found we just need to have good windrows, and drive a little slower so the flakes are smaller. The trouble is when the baler is about to tie a bale, and a extra large flake slides in at the end right before the bale ties.
The other good thing about the Baron not being hooked behind the baler is if you see a bale coming that you feel looks a bit longer, just drive around it and leave it.
