Custom guy that does mostly baleage with a Kuhn 2160. Typically with wet hay I want all the capacity I can get so I run it pretty hard. It makes a heavy bale when you do that, and get a lot done. If I have good conditions with a freshly sharpened knives, I can knock out 50 bales in hour.
Dry hay and no cutter? I back the pto RPM down to save fuel and wear and tear. Also try to keep my speed up.
