lukekf5 325711 307 JD 6420 & 467 Baler either
JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Our tractor & new baler ready for the hay season. JD 6420
IVT tractor, 110hp (250 hrs) & JD 467 Silage special baler
with MegaWide pickup & Coveredge netwrap.

Must say that the JD tractor is a beautiful machine, i would
reccomend an IVT/CVT transmission to anyone who is looking
to purchase a new tractor.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Nice photos! Do you use the clutch with the ivt trans while
baling. ie when stopping to release bale etc. Or hit the
brakes and let the autoclutch kick in? I used a 7920 with
ivt and found it took a little getting used to while baling.
Awesome trans though!

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
vey nice, i would like to drive a ivt to, but our 6110
hasn't got very much hours yet, so i don't think we'll get a
new tractor for now(maybe later:-P)

do you have commandarm to?

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
No we dont have a command arm, We do have an electronic
Joystic for the front end loader though, took a bit of
getting used to. But very nice tractor to drive.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Hi Jeff,
Depends on the baling conditions, I generally like to
just use the brakes, but havent had a chance to use this
baler yet (hoefully this weekend for a bit of early silage).
We also have a 435 string baler, and when I use that I liked
to drop the tractor back into neutral and let the auto
brakes come on.
I would like to see a 7920 pulling a baler, bet you would
never run out of power!

Hi Greg,
Have sent you an email regarding where I am now.
However heres some more info: I did a season in south gippy
around & on the hills in Toora, Foster & Welshpool. Learnt
quite a bit about driving on hills, and i hated driving on
the steep stuff. But really enjoyed my time down there, I
will post some more pics of some photos I took on my 35mm
camera (when i get it developed)

Here is inside the cab, with electronic joystick for the
front end loader & the BaleTrack Pro monitor for the baler.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Thats a real tidy set up youve got in the cab there. With
the baler monitor where it is, does it stop you from using
the right hand door? We normally pull the baler (Krone
VarioPack 1800) with a 6920 which is absolutly brillant,
especially on the steeper hills. The 7920 is very powerfull
and becuase of that sort of eliminates an feel of the crop
going into the baler, making it easy to get to cocky and jam
it up (on silage). Also used a 8220 to bale with, same
again, wasy to big.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Jeff,
It does stop you from using the RH door, but I dont know
many people that use it anyway.
I hate blockages, I know what you mean when you say about
getting cocky & silage blockages are the worst. The more
power you have in the hills is certainly an advantage
though, when I was in South Gippy it was sometimes a bit
painfull driving up a windrow on a hill doing only a few
km/h.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
I loved the 6920. I would actually take it over the 7920 as
it just had so much feel to it. Has your baler got a
reverse rotor in it? (Does it have a rotor?)

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
Yes it does have a rotor feeder, but it doesnt have a
reverser. I baled some silage on the weekend at about 18km,
and it didnt look like blocking up (how ever the windrows
were light). It feeds really well and the cover edge net
wrap produces a neat bale.

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
That can make it tough if you get a block with out the
reveser. We used to have a jd 590 with reverser and it was
brillant. The Krone we have now is not as good as the
johnys. I have baled behind a claas liner 3000, 12.5m rake
a few times and its a real reasurance that you have the
reverser, cause they make such a big row. You guys are
doing pretty well to be making silage already!! Is this the
usal time of the year that you start? Have you tried
feeding out any of your bales with the cover edge net yet,
how does that go?

Re: JD 6420 & 467 Baler
G`day Luke, I got your e-mail,havent replied yet sorry,
Here`s a shot of our JD 7220 with 467 baler doing silage a
couple of years back in Lindenow. Silage has started here
this week too, a couple of weeks earlier than usual.

Hi Jeff,
Yes early start to the season, there have been a lot of
people doing silage (mainly pit silage) and their & our
plans are to try and get 2 good cuts of silage from the
paddocks, some want to push for 3!

Hi Gregg, no worries about repling to my email, i just didnt

Nice picture Gregg, I must say that the Johnny's look a bit
out of place with 2WD.
