New Holland TM125 baling squares.
TM125 with Quicke 980 loader and John Deere 336 square baler baling hay for the neighbor, at his home piece a couple years back.

I uploaded these pictures in the past, but they're tucked away on page 5 of a thread from 2005, about a Deere 7720 demo. For those who haven't seen, I'll upload them in the proper place.

Re: New Holland TM125 baling squares.
Switched over to straw, then hooked up to our New Holland 1003 bale picker. It's an older and smaller model, perfect for what we use it for. Carries 84 bales on the final holder, but you can keep 15 more on the front tables if needed.

It's time for an over-haul that's for sure, a couple neighbor's have offered to take it and fix it up since someone always wants to use it. No problems with it, just cosmetic.

Re: New Holland TM125 baling squares.
Tom, not really no. :-D

This was a poor attempt at a third cut, wasn't worth it to use the round baler but he wanted some squares to keep in the barns for calving, both of hay and straw. It was either bale this, or put some rounds through the processor and re-bale that up. (Don't laugh, we've done it and it works good. lol)

He cut it, and raked it, no point in leaving it in the field. Got enough to fill both of our barns. This year though, we baled it properly, in a good field. He baled rounds and we baled squares at the same time.

Hey Josh. Those 336 Deere balers were/are pretty popular. This is from a couple years ago, we were using a 620 on the front baler and a 4240 on the second. Not sure what size the bale wagon was.

Re: New Holland TM125 baling squares.
Russ, nice pic, really like that 620. Our 336 has been really good, we've only had a few problems with it. Kind of a pain to reset the timing on it, but other than that now complaints. How many squares do you put up each year? How do you like that Self Propelled picker/stacker? Would like to have one in some ways, but in other ways... I'd rather just have a new, bigger, tandem-axle unit behind a tractor, as opposed to a dedicated machine for it, don't really like those cabs compared to 100+ hp tractor, but I haven't put any time on one to judge.

Re: New Holland TM125 baling squares.
Well...to tell you the truth the 620 is the only piece of equipment in this picture that we have anymore :-D . We sold both our balers about 2-3 years ago. The 4240 we traded on a 6410, and the bale wagon...I'm not sure what happened to it. I never ran it, but I remember some of the words dad said when he ran it :-P . There are custom bale haulers here now and it is easier to get them to pick bales. This last year was the first year in a couple that we put up hay bales, and we put up only 100 or so rounds off of our 3rd cut hay. But you are right about the timing on the 336 also our knotters(?) gave us some grief some times.

Re: New Holland TM125 baling squares.
lol nice, and yes, I can imagine the words used when bouncing around in that cab. :-P

We don't put up many squares either, a few hundred a year. Few years back we put up a couple thousand, but mostly we do it for our neighbors. We purchase all our feed, all our land is dedicated to pasture. Over time we've developed pretty healthy relationships with our suppliers (mostly neighbors), and it helps because they supply the mowers and round balers, we supply the trucks and loaders, silage machine, etc. Some people share equipment and farm work with relatives, we do so with a couple different neighboring farms.

I forgot about them, but you're right, I've fought too many times with those knotters. Maybe it wasn't that often after all, but it was sure a dreaded job.

Josh,the bouncing is not to bad in that cab,its kind of gentle and slow up and down.
