1)Read the instructions and pay attention to the safety signs
2) Connect the baler to the tractor
3) Wheel installation:
Lift the baler from above using a loader or forklift with suitable capacity. Use the two lift hooks on top of the baler. The baler weighs about 1,100 lbs.
Raise the baler up from the pallet, then install the wheels as well as the wheeled stand that mounts to the front of the baler.
The hardware for the wheels is either in the twine chamber or in a separate small parts bag and includes a bolt, washer, and nut for each side. please see the video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbvZRrkMk3U&t=152s
The baler mounts it to the tractor’s 3-point hitch and lifts it. To do this, the baler must be lifted from the front. Once this is done, the wheel can be installed.
4 )Oil all chains before using the machine.
Including the pickup chain which is on the lower part of the machine on the left side, obscured by a metal cover.
5)Check all accessories are correct
6)Starting a bale
Never use water to clean the baler. Keep the baler sheltered from water at all times. use compressed air to blow out any loose debris, and use a broom or brush to brush away any debris that remains.
The baler feeds twine much better with sisal twine. Poly twine can be used but might have to wind it twice around the rate pulley or you are going to have it wind the bale on only one end. If you do use poly twine try to use one with a larger diameter. twine, not plastic, which can be dangerous for livestock. Straw ropes are divided into 3kg and 5kg types, 3kg straw ropes can get an average of 60-80 bales according to different bale weights. The premise is that the rope is wrapped in the middle of the white wheel. The large circle of the white wheel uses less rope, and the small circle of the white wheel represents the largest number of ropes used.
When raking, create a windrow that is not too large and not too small for the baler. The optimal windrow will have a width of 28-32 inches and a height of 12-16 inches. The more uniform the windrows, the smoother the operation will be and the more consistent the bale weights will be.
When the bale is done, the arm drops but then doesn’t return and no binding starts, The main reason is that the amount of grass-fed is too small or the amount of grass in the left and right directions is uneven. For example, when standing in front of a baler, feed more grass to the right. After the alarm goes off, increase the tractor throttle to prevent this problem. The binding arm can only tangle when it is down, and the rope does not tangle when the arm is standing. The arm cannot be pulled down by the artificial pull rope, but falls on its own with the grass. Reserve 35-38cm of rope tail for next season.
