I have never seen or heard of a JD 10HD small square baler. I do mean small. The bale looks to be a foot tall and 18 inch wide. They would be great for the fall craft stores and such. Machinery Pete has a video about one.

Several years ago at the show in Fairview, OK, there was a guy there baling some wheat straw with a JD model 10. They are a wire tie high density baler, however, he didn't have enough tension on and the bales were very light and not tight at all. I even brought one home just for a conversation piece, but finally got tired of messing with it and used it.

I have two different brochures for the 10 baler. They make a 10x15 bale and a plunger speed of 95 strokes.

Were they made in the 50s? Seem to remember literature about small bales made easier handling...

1963 was the beginning manufacture date of the model 10.

The #10 was an attempt to help custom growers get more tonnage on a truck by making the bales more dense. It never caught on.

We had one at our local JD dealership where my dad worked, years ago. As mentioned made small compact bales. I only remember them trying it on a few fields one year. Back then most bales were handled by hand anyway, but now would never work on a bale wagon. Heard of a guy overloading his hay trailer because he loaded it to normal size but had a lot more weight. That story like many could have been imagined by someone.

Heck, I thought you might be talking about the JD bailer we called the side shooter. It was the smallest bailer ever made that I know of. Hired a guy when I first moved to Mos to come bale for me, and he came with that. Did a good job.

Wish I had one that makes those ones you see in art/craft stores.. those straw bales go for 5-7 bucks a bale and the gals soak them up..I have a time getting that for regular size bales..LOL

I wouldnt mind seeing a thrower on the end of that baler just to see how much air it could get on one of those.
