I was going to say where is the hay? How many tons per acre are you mowing?

This is the worst thing we’ve had this year. One of our workers mangled the Tedder. 3 of the 6 bolts holding the rotor sheared. Rotor fell off and cracked. 11 tines broke, 18 of 24 arms were bent. I asked how long it was rattling before she noticed it was broke. She said a little while, I looked back but didn’t see anything wrong. She doesn’t help with hay anymore…. I did get everything straightened back out and back together. Works like a new one

" She doesn't help with hay anymore" I'd say she owes you some money!

Not my first thought when I read the title. More along I thought this was a kid friendly sight?

Not the same good times in a hayfield that I remember. I can't post them on here.

It works great! Sure beats loading and unloading by hand. There’s a little learning curve to stacking properly on the wagon so the stacks don’t fall. A guy can easily bale and stack over 1000 bales a day by himself if you’ve got the wagons to load them

Just reading this thread makes me itch. Hated hayin growing up. Back then it was throwing and stacking bales. Then up to the loft to do it again. Hot itchy suffocating work.

come on out -- that is still how we do it. Except no loft -- we start on the floor and work up to the eaves (16'). You can relive your childhood and I won't even charge you for the privelege . Btw -- we have a warm -up batch ready tomorrow (7 acres) only supposed to be 95 tomorrow -- 100 the next day.
