It rained the night we had to do a demo in a local parking lot ...bummer. But you can see the baler work some here. Notice the canvas aprons and the wooden plunger...this is about a 1946 model And it still bales hay! This is from the Antique Hay Expo and Tractor show, Oxford, Iowa July 24, 2010. The baler belongs to Mr. Bill Stockman of Oxford Iowa.


Pretty neat, brought back memories from the late 60s and 70s for me. Uncle had one that he used, a little newer, more like the modern balers but still had the Wisconsin engine on it, he pulled it with an 8N Ford. There was three of them my uncle, my dad, and a neighbor and they shared racks, tractors, and labor including the raking sometimes. A little slower pace back then, hauled in with M tractors and a 560.They always had beer and soda in a big wash tub on ice/water, a water hose hooked up to the hydrant and we got a break every 3 to 4 loads as well as sending out rounds to the crew in the field. After we finished always had a feed of ham sandwiches and other goodies afterwards. I miss those days.
I remember as a kid helping dad bale with an old self-powered baler like that. I was so short I had to get off the seat and stand up to disengage the clutch lever on our old John Deere tractor that pulled the baler. So one time when the windrows were too big and the baler started to bog down, it took me too long to disengage the clutch and there went a shear pin. After cussing me out, Dad went through the whole rigamarole of pulling off the flywheel and replacing the shear pin and wouldn't you know it, I sheared another one right away getting started up again.
