    Baled and wrapped couldn't be done without a can of beer or two. 7e a bale they are making. You would want every penny the work that goes into it

    helping a mate with small bales hay today.
    Got the baler tractor stuck in a wet bit!!
    To be fair his 2wd massey is on slick back wheels. He stopped to check baler settings and she just wouldn't get going again!
    He has a 6 rotor tedder which we worked out had meant that he hadn't been over that spot with tractor wheels till today!! :lol:
    Mows with a tractor on 600's, she must have floated over it!

    More luck to ye lads that have the ba**s to go for it. Last time I made hay it was in 2015, cut on 29th of June and not baled till 4th August. I spent almost 5 weeks messing with it and it was still shite, never again.

    Our hay for GLAS this year was cut on a Saturday and baled the following Wednesday. Took a punt and got away with it. It pi**ed rain the following morning.
    Hay would wreck your head some years.

    His Renault was having hydraulic issues, I was called over to try figure it out, he borrowed a neighbor's ford to finish the turning. Contractor raked and baled.

    I don't pay much attention to balers, I thought it was a tornado, but you could well be right.
