Brand new 856


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking he means it went the whole way around back to zero.

Nice pics, generally didn’t use tractors that size for the baler, mostly 656 gas got that job. If the 656 wasn’t available, then the 826, but switched out asap.

Thanks. We use to bale with an 826, but it would be lacking for power on the hills we have here once you had a fairly full wagon behind it. New balers and wagons are heavy.   A 656 wouldn’t be a very good fit. Neighbor rakes with a nice pair of them.

For sure.  I don’t believe anybody thought differently. I have one with “300” hours on it now and another one with “1200” or “2200”.  They were working together today. 6E6C38F2-2116-4608-9818-3834071E68F9.thumb.jpeg.c7083fba82022199237c4fdd25620bec.jpeg3B1BC20B-4EE2-44E7-892E-A4573739B1CF.thumb.jpeg.57bad0d37563e2ef78ee685efcd962f5.jpeg

What's the baler and how do you like it?

New Holland 5070s,they used to be called 575s. We have always used new Holland baler’s for the last 40+ years, I don’t have anything else to compare them to, but we like them.  I hooked a 68hp ford  6600 to one once just to test fire a few bales through it in the yard and it would shake the tractor as the plunger hit. I would never attempt to run one with much less than 100 hp. Our wagons are 18’ and kick on 155-170 45lb bales pretty consistently.  Just sold this 575 B2A7004B-0366-4912-A1FD-4CD1A5E40285.thumb.jpeg.8e8df5acb88a2d6f0078163d07e01878.jpeg74AD7BC7-D7DF-46EA-AA37-C4205A571332.thumb.jpeg.9889d366983c4cf8424784833378d5be.jpegEF65D3E1-BFDD-4852-8E9F-1248FB343F52.thumb.jpeg.34cdb7c204f6f7efd45d2ee8d51caa07.jpegafter 14 years.
