I have to agree with ya Dan, on all counts. But you have to admit that baler is cute as a button! I'd love to have one, but set it up for towing behind a garden tractor with rear pto! How cool would that be!
Caeb does makea model for compact tractors, seems to me they reccomend a minumum of 18 hp at the PTO
I agree that making hay with a walk behind is counter intuitive to any one, who has put up hay the way we do it in the US. And I don't advocate it on a working dairy farm. It might be a way to go for those of us who have a few acres and would like to generate enough income to pay the taxes and support our hobby farm?
I have no intention of keeping livestock myself. Not interested in having my feet nailed to the milk parlor floor.
Though admire those who do it. Most farmers here are only making the large round bales, I understand the labor savings makes it only practical. But see a market on the side going unfilled.
