Trying to replace some pickup teeth on this baler and the slotted head screws are rusted and the slots are bunged up. These are the screws that are in the stripper bands. Any tips to getting them out? thanks

Right angle grinder with a thin cut off blade to renew slot and a torch to put heat to the nut. Should come right off.

Yep those can be fun to remove at times. A dull chisel and a good hammer then tap to the side so as to drive it off in the same way a screwdriver would turn it might work. Of course heat can help but be careful due to the hay that may be there

weld a flat washer to them and grab them with a good 10" vise-grip

I took the screws out of the front off my old Case with a slide hammer. Worked good if you can get at all the screws.

You could try to cut the slots out with a Deemmel and a thin cutoff disk. Then go at them with a proper sized screwdriver blade. How about a impact driver tool? The kind that has a screwdriver bit, and you hit tpo with a hammer?
A little heat may help, and of course your favorite snake oil. Have had good luck with propane torch and candle wax on stubborn threaded things.

My NH actually uses hex head bolts with no problems with hay snagging, etc.

Another thing I just thought about that might work if you can find one is one of those old hammer type impact tools where you hit it and that hit turns the screw driver part and free up the screw

only takes a second, or 2 more, just to grind the whole head off. Then a pair of vice grips, and back it out.

I'd soak them overnight with PB Blaster and try a hammer and centerpunch close to the outside of head of the screw.

But on some of those if you do that then you replace the bigger part due to the fact the nut is welded to the back side of the part so it is get the screw out or buy a $25 part if not more since it has green and yellow paint on it

The slide hammer I mentioned is the same thing as you mentioned. I have used it several times for that. The only problem is you need the end small enough to match the screw head. I ground the hammer head down to fit the screw.

Never seen or heard of any type of slide hammer type thing like you say. What I am talking about is maybe 6 inches long and you can change the tips so you can use a socket or a screwdriver tip and you hold it in one hand then hit it with a hammer and the action of the hammer makes the thing twist and also due to the hit forces it down so it hold better then a normal screwdriver would

I have one of those. My father, a retired mechanic/machinist, calls it an 'impact driver.' Not to be confused with an 'impact wrench'.
