Is there a trick to making good tight bales with a rolant 66
with net wrap. It seems to get better with a bigger windrow,
but still not as tight as I'd like.

Are you taking the pressure gauge up to the red before you tie the bale??? It does take a bit of horse power to make a tight bale. Not sure if a bigger windrow would help or not... RodinNS would likely know the best way to bale witha rollant baler, i know he uses them...

RodinNS is the expert. I think he will help you out. He sure helped me.

You gotta take that bale gauge into the red zone and the tractor really begins to grunt.

We've run it up to the edge of the red. Haven't burried the needle. We've also tried allowing it to relax a few seconds and the needle goes back down, then a little more can be packed in there. That helps too. Its been run on a late 4020 diesel (95hp?) and a 4320 (115hp) and they don't work at all until the very end, and that only labors them a very little. Might not be comparing apples to apples, but they're no where near as tight as a john deere 466 bale that has been run on the same tractors. Is it just what you get comparing rolls to belts?

All I can tell you is,I bought some one year that were rolled with a Claas,4x5s. I unrolled them in the feed alley of the stanchion barn just like I always did with my Gehl 4x5s. There was just half as much hay in ones from the Claas.

Roller bales or soft core belt bales will never be as tight as a hard core belt baler, it sounds like you should have enough horse power on the front.

I owned a Claas Rolant 56 baler. I wanted mesh wrap and Claas had the first one around here. There are several things to do that will help make a tighter bale.

1) Have good sized windrows.

2) Drive slower at the end of the bale. Let it make more revolutions so the outside is packed tighter.

3) Make sure your SCV is not slowly leaking off. This will let the pressure valve on the baler not hold the correct pressure.

4) Run the baler up into the Red just a little. Then like I said slow down and let it work on the bale a little. Then top it off with more hay. This time when you get to the top of the Green or even lower Red your bale is done.

5) Make sure your cylinders are not leaking across internally. This will let the baler not make very tight bales.

Do these things and you should have pretty good bales.
