Well I have learned something new today, I have never seen or herd of a 3 wire system on an Oliver baler or any other baler for that fact, And I love Oliver equipment. I would say it would have to be kinda rare for sure. What model baler is it? Bandit

One of our customers had a model 100 baler till a few years ago. Out where my brother inlaw lives in AZ all the square balers that size are 3 wire and bales are over 100 pounds.

I still bale with my 720, but also never heard of an Oliver 3 wire baler. Interesting.

At one time there were a fair number of Oliver Balers in our area. We had 3 and the last was a 620. Then got a JD 336 as Oliver was out of the baler business.
It is interesting about an Oliver 3 wire baler. I can remember back a little before that time and never remember seeing one in Western or Central New York State.

The more I think about if I could buy a 3 wire Oliver I probably would. It would probably need any wore or broken parts fabricated. No use thinking about it too much. If I have not run across one in over 50 years, probably will not see one.

I need to look in some of my Oliver catalogs, but I think there was also a 102 3 wire baler for a few years as well.

They must have been pretty common in Hollywood. Seems like every bale you see in old movies and TV shows were three wire bales. lol

I have noticed that too about the older movies. Every time I see one of those movies I think must have been made by a big baler. Then say to myself can't be.
I would think the three wire balers were quite pricey. Might have been a California thing selling to Hollywood. Can not imagine Hollywood types baling anything.

Like I said below out at least in AZ the older balers are 3 wire balers. We were out there one year when the AZ state fair was going on and Budweiser had some of there horses there and all the bales they had were 3 wire and they were paying $10 to 12 a bale for good horse hay at about 100 pounds per bale.

Especially the old Westerns that were supposed to be about events in the 1870's and 1880's
