tmrand - 11/21/2023 08:19 I had a couple of bale per minute jobs back when I was running a JD 568. My baler now is a 569 but I don't do much custom work. Usually my own stuff/cane feed is around 30 bales an hour. My bucket list includes owning one of those self propelled Vermeers. They speed up the baler rpms to wrap the net faster and auto raise and lower the gate. Like I said in the baler thread the other day.........I'm well into the 6 figure number on bales in my lifetime. So I want the Cadillac to go out in style!
I'm rapidly approaching 62. Tuff on the body running those speeds on corn fields for that long. Last fall I had 1004 bales in 2 days. Not sure how long I'll keep this up. I'm into 6 figures too
