if you baled wet aftergrass and it sat in the field for a few days and your baler man wasnt known to pack em tight then it would come into play, but other than that i always thought them to be on a par with furry dice.

your supposed to have them stacked within 4 hours of wrapping neway.

Ya true. The ordinary handler does the job fine from my experience.
You wouldn't see any farmer with one to be honest, all use the ordinary type handler. Says it all really doesn't it.

They are popular enough around here tbh. Fella's take off the paddles and just spike the bale when feeding.
