OK Guys,

I currently have a JD 224WS wire tie with a 4 cyl Wisconsin that is not currently running.

I did not have it for sale but I now have an offer of 600.00. I am thinking about it because I know of a JD 24WS for sale that is PTO driven, or a JD 24T PTo driven.

Sorry for the long post, I have 3 acres that I want to bale myself, I have a 56 JD 420S which I assume will work with either, #5 Mower & Allis Chalmers PTO Rake.

My question is would you sell the 224 for a 24. Would either 24 work, the wire baler is half the price of the twine baler, just not sure what to do. I do want to be all John Deere for sentamental reasons (My dad worked for a dealer in Oregon for 45 years.)

Thanks for listening, appreciate any feedback.

If you are going to pull the baler with your 420 then I would get the Wisconsin engine running.That way you can run any ground speed without regard for keeping the PTO speed up.

IMHO, with three acres you'll never wear out a #24WS or the #224WS which is a heavy duty version of the #24. My preference is for a pto machine but if you like an engine driven one, go for it. My JD #14T pto twine baler has made untold tens of thousands of bales and is still punching them out every season!
