Baled tens of thousands of bales with one-of-them in the '70s/early '80s; IF the hay is cured/windrows are uniform/field is clean, they bale just great........20 bales per hour for hours on end. If the above conditions are not met, they can be VERY frustrating. I've spent as long as 3 hours lying on my side/back pulling hay....basically a stem at a time.....from between the (closed-throat) rollers. Depending on your own situation, you MIGHT be better off looking for a "F" or later model.

We used the Massey version of that baler from 1979 to 1998 and it was still baling when we traded it. I agree with whats been said, as long as the hay is dry you will be fine. Check the upper feed roller real good because if the rubber is starting to come off you will wish you had never seen the baler. Another plus is the C series doesnt need quite the horsepower of the later series balers.If you want an open throat design the Vermeer G series was the first to have the open throat.

I would pass. We had one for years and struggled with hard to start rolls and plugging. There are too many cheap open throat balers out there to go with this baler. Good luck.
