I used my 484 for the first time today and it worked well, except for the full bale indicator stopping partway through baling. I was able to guess after that based on engine speed once the bales were about done. Is there a way to check to see if the switch is faulty or if something failed in the monitor? Otherwise the electric tie worked well and the bales turned out OK.

I gave up on the full bale indicator the first year I had my NI round baler. My baler made 4x4 bales, and my brother still has one the same, and runs his with a 50 hp 584 IH. With a 50 hp tractor, you can?t make a very heavy bale of hay, you just run out of power. He keeps putting hay into the baler till the old tractor is blowing black smoke before he puts the string on, and still has bales that don?t weight much. And will stall the tractor before it will shear a pin. I ran my baler with my CaseIH 5140 95 hp, and it would shear the pin, not fun. I would run hay in till the tractor started to labor some. My pto speed would be at 540, and as the the bale got near ready to tie, pto speed would start to drop. I would generally get the string on at 525-530 rpm pto speed, but if both strings didn?t catch and start to tie, I?d stop and find out why. Because if I kept feeding hay in, and pto speed dropped to 510 rpm, I was in real danger of cutting off the shear pin. What hp tractor are you using? And is this the 4x5 baler? Bruce

Yes, this is the 4x5 baler. I had it on my 1850 Oliver.

These balers eat hp if you want to make a tight bale that will stay round, and not sag. I had inside storage for dry hay, and could stack my 4x4 bales with my skid steer. I always stacked bales on their ends when ever possible, that way they stayed round. Which was important to us because we rolled them out for the cows in the dairy barn.

The switch on my 484 sometime gets some chaff built up and that causes it to flicker or not work. Might also be a poor ground connection at the switch.
