I recently bought an mf12 Bailee. At this point I ve soaked and replied all the chains and changed the gear lube. When I hooked it up and turned on the pto it ground and popped a shear bolt.

After considerable time thinking and consulting the manual I figure the pickup needs lowered but the manual seems very vague on how to do this. Can someone familiar with this shed some light on this?

I had a #9, #10, and #12. They all had the same setup to raise and lower the pick up, that being a lever pointing forward on the side of the baler by the pick up, right above the tire. Two of the three balers had stuck plungers; I had to free them up before they would turn. Two had Wisconsin TFD engines, and one was converted to PTO. One was wire tie and the other two twine tie. Basically they were all the same machine except for size. An owner's manual is a great help.

A lever you can grab a hold of? Maybe I m missing something. Photos attached. How did you unstick the plungers?

It may be that the timing of the packers needs to be reset. If the packers are in the bale chamber when to ram pushes to compact the hay it
will cause a real mess. Instructions to set packers timing are on the pick up side of the main chamber behind the flywheel, assuming they
haven't been painted over.

I don't know what to say about the pick up that has no lifting lever. All three of mine did have - it stuck out to the front beside the sheet metal hay guide, and had a one-stop bracket: lift it and push the lever into the slot, and the pick up stayed up for transport. Take the lever out of the slot and the pick up lowered. None of mine had a small wheel and tire - maybe that's the difference. Mine were all very early serial numbers. Mine had a large cupped plate that would hit the ground and lift the pick up so the tines wouldn't hit the dirt.

Off PTO though.
