Women love sisal they just leave it where it falls. I use poly my MF120 absolutely loves it can make a bale so tight you can hardly get your fingers under the string.

I have been using 7200 poly in my NH 570 with belt thrower for 5 years now, and have never had a problem with the belts melting the twine! I wouldn't dare guess whether you have an adjustment issue, or I'm just plain fortunate! I would hazard a guess that it might be the former!

JMHO, HTH, Dave

PS: I'm on board with those that say "good housekeeping" takes care of poly twine problems.
Interestingly, I've never had a customer tell me that they would prefer sisal, or that poly caused problems for them.

I use sisal on a few rounds and 9600 170# poly on squares. I don't have a thrower but my 326 NH seems to like the heavier string. I have a 273 wire that I use as a backup and for straw. Personally I like wire on squares they stay together Period. But as expensive as it has gotten I just use it on straw now. I use the black netwrap on most of my round bales. The white crap is only good for rolling up on axles and spreader beaters because it is impossible to get it completely off the bales.

I use plastic 20,000 in my round baler, and just make an effort to find it all. The only color I prefer is orange, because it's easier to find. The stuff we miss finds the beater on the spreader the next spring, and it burns off fairly easy when I clean the beaters. As for square bales, I used to use sisal when I was younger. Then I went to rounds, and a few years ago was given a square baler. It had two bales of almost new sisal in it that was about 25 or 30 years old and had been in the baler when it was parked in a shed. In bringing the machine back to life, I just used the twine that was in it, and baled a few hundred bales without a miss. But, we have had some mice and rat problems, and as a result, I lost some straw to them. I went to 9000 plastic, which solved the problem. But it was hard on hands and would snap a few times on really tight bales, so now I use 7200 plastic. No more snaps. And it didn't make any difference to the baler.
