Whelp It's Done
Put up about 100 bales this afternoon. Baler ran without a hitch and I left about 50 bales on the trailer covered with a tarp. All of it looked pretty dry and I didn't pick up too much uncut stuff in the windrows but I did have to set the baler feed up higher than I would like. I probably could have gotten another 20 bales or so if I had set it down but the combustion risk is just too high with all this rain and humidity.
I even got a good video of the 861 and 532 baler working together that I plan on posting up in the next few days. The son says it needs to be edited and rendered to youtube useable whatever that means.
Other than that I am so sore and tired I can barely walk. I am getting way too old to be throwing those damned square bales around anymore. The worst part is we are only about halfway done with hay season. Got the front half of the big field and the smaller front field I can get at least another cutting off of.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
