Re: Baling contest
1st round i had 1015KG and #8 had 1105 and thats only a
4ft.wide bale.
note the weigth from others,far away cause the Vermeer works
with air pressure.

Re: Baling contest
finally i was happy with 2nd rank,my bales are tidy #8
unloked the gate just before it was full,thas why those
bales from him look not verry nice.
1st run #8 went with the pressure all the way up in to the
red,that what i did too in the 2nd run.
the other thing was HP,i had only a 5.8lt non turbo with
about 100 HP on the engine wich was strugeling but JD power
saved it.

Re: Baling contest
Note the diff.in weigth to the JD baler in pic above.
the work with the hydraulics of the tractor for pressure the
bale and if the tractor is a bit weak there the bale wont be
as hard.

Re: Baling contest
very nice and interesting:-)

if i understand wel, it's about who makes the heaviest bale,
does the size of the bale count to?

Re: Baling contest
no,only the weigth counts.
of corse you have to have a baler wich makes 6ft.=180cm in
diameter bales and you have to be driving all the time as
slow you want but no stopping.
it was a lot of fun there,it was the 1st contest there in
aussie.
seems to be common in the US.
