Does anyone know what a fair price would be for a working Krone kr 260? Thanks

Also are there any known problems to look for on these balers. Thanks

We bought a KRONE 260 baler in April 2007 for $2,000.

We use it to bale all the Bahia grass on the farm.

We had the tailgate repaired.

The previous owner or his hired help broke the hinges.

The tailgate now works without any problem.

Check the pick up teeth; they will work loose and sometimes get sideways in the stripper.

Keep the chain drives and chains well lubricated.

Keep the knives sharp that cut the baler twine to avoid automatic tying problems.

Check both bale density indicators and set them according to instructions in the owner's manual to avoid "jamming" in the pickup.

With only routine lubrication and maintenance this baler is very dependable.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. Have you done any silage bales with yours?

No silage bales; only cured bales.

Baled a little too early one time and some were "warm" on the inside.

Usually wait three days after cutting before baling.

Sometimes it doesn't take that long to cure in this Texas heat.
