On my JD 348 baler, at the end of the bale chamber are two angles, one on each bottom side. These angles hold the next bale up so the pan can return under it after throwing a bale. I have mine set all the way up, however, the slot can allow a lower setting.

Question - how do you have these angles set on your JD square baler with pan kicker?

Thanks!
Bill

If you push the baler to full capacity you need them all the way up to hold the bale up slightly so when the pan returns it goes under the bale rather that hitting it. The pan style kicker slightly limits the capacity of the baler as it can only throw and return so fast without hitting the next bale. A New Holland baler will out bale a Deere because of the belt thrower but the Deere will make nicer and squarer bales and once you get good with the kicker you can get more bales on a load with the Deere.

I have mine set up with a steep angle or the next bale coming out of the baler won't let the pan return to locked position. Then the bales will just start pushing under the pan and you'll have a mess.

NH 575 capacity was one determining factor in the NH decision to discontinue the Model 75 kicker.

Same here on my 336, for the same reason.
