Growing and baling hay all my life. Alfalfa is cut every 28 days April till October.  Last spring baled 6000 bales of grain hay all cut with a Challenger swather serviced by Holt  AG.

I just noticed that those bales come out lying what I call on their "side". Do they all do that now? My baler experience is from the '80s so it's not totally current

Neil that’s what we call on edge. On the strings would be flat. There on edge for the automatic bale wagon or “harrowbed”.

that is great looking feed and I'm envious of your growing season....been haying all my life as well but at 62 i seem to be a young'un compared to some...i would guess 90%+ hay in Western Canada is round bales, most bales range 800-1600 pounds...lots of variables depending on region

always dropping GOLD, all you have to do is just pick it UP !

Looks like the pushers got better traction than the puller, lol

The one pulling is not pulling as clutch is disengaged. No idea why he was not trying to go, arm extended he has it as disengaged as he can get it. Maybe he wanted to be right in the center in front of camera.

Hi, Ray54.
Yep, I noticed that too, and that the scraper is starting to jack-knife with the pusher tractor pushing at an angle to the front tractor. One thought that occurred to me was that the front tractor had stalled and was hoping to get a push start from the pusher tractor.

If he had stalled, I think there is fat chance that the pusher tractor would able to push him and the loaded scraper while the scraper is still cutting heavy enough to stall the front tractor.

But what would I know? I'm 'justa pore, dumm bulldozer op'rator'.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
