After I replaced all the bearings on the finger carriage, my wife I were looking over the rest of the baler and taking turns turning the PTO (Fly Wheel) by hand and checking the knotters and such.

I noticed that the "needle yoke spindle" carriage bolt heads were warn pretty bad.




I feel much better after installing new bolts.





Below is a pic of one of the first bales we made.

That would be the day that my wife would take a turn at pushing the flywheel. She might, just might, push the switch to engage the PTO, but I don't know how I would get her up on the tractor to be able to do that.

I count myself most fortunate to be married to my wife. Helping me play on the farm and with equipment is something see enjoys.





Her real super power is keeping our four kids in line while I spend half of each year on a ship.

Thanks for the reply

WELS, thank you very much for sharing that and i am very happy for you and your wife that you both enjoy a common interest. I will check my needle carriage bolts as well
on my old 275. I have not noticed they were worn looking but I must say I have not looked too hard. If there is such a thing as grade 5 or grade 8 carriage bolts, i will
get those. It is not unusual for me to have hay on the ground on May 21, but its not happening this year.

I was scraping some of the rust off of the inside of the bale chamber when a big chunk fell down. I asked my wife if there were bolts in that general area. The bolt heads were so worn I couldn t even see them.

I think I put grade 5 bolts in.

Thanks for the reply

Good catch on finding that potential problem. You may have saved a set of needles.

I meant to add that we were only testing the baler using old bales.



I think the fields will be ready to cut around the 1st of June however I will be on the ship then, so it will just have to wait.

I use a couple of old bales to test my baler every year, only I do it right in front of my shop door so that everything is available.

I'm going to check those on my 273. I go over it each year but never thought to look there.

showcrop, my wife drives when we bale. Usually works out OK but she insists on first gear and afraid to "overload" the baler. But these days I don't think I could keep up on the wagon going any faster.

My wife used to drive and I stacked on the wagon. She used to say that the best wedding anniversary gift that she ever got was the baler with the thrower and wagons with the sides so that she was relieved of driving duty.
