i seen a neighboing one a while back with a 4020 deere. those things suck power when theyre almost full, that poor ol tractor was coughing more smoke than a pulling truck when the bale go to full size. and i found one problem with my 530 baler today, i bent a spindle going too fast over a rough field, thank goodness its 4 big bolts and the whole spindle comes off, i took it home, straightened it, welded the huge factory gussets back up and away i went again. im gonna put some washers between the spindle and the baler frame at the top because its still got a little bit of a lean in problem but nothing major.

We have a 565A Hesston. Its actually a decent machine, slow at tieing though. Ours had electrical problems from the prior owner, but I think we have replaced a sprocket, changed the chains, and we put a clutch into it this last year. Other than having to tie half the bales a year manually, its been okay, and problem free.

We have demo'd some balers in the last few years. The Vermeer 605M is a mamoth, strong as hell, but you can't pull it with anything less than a 1 ton. Don't think of baling haysloughs with it unless you have a MFWD. Its a heavy mother.

The JD 567 is a great machine. The one we tried was MegaWide and had the optional start, so you could make softcore bales with it. I didn't ever try that feature though. It like the Vermeer with eat anything you can throw at it. Bit more complicated, bit not bad for a baler. There are way worse out there. Defintately a machine you could keep long term.

The neighbour has a JD 568 which he did some baling for us last fall when the clutch went out of the 565A. He pulls it behind an 8450 JD 4wd. It looks goofy as heck, but he still runs 10+ mph with it. He actually did not like the 568, he wanted to go back to his 567, he said the 567 actually had more capasity.

I have baled with everything from NH 660, 664, 668, even the old chain link ones, JD 510, 535, 567, Hesston 565A, even Vermeer C, G, H, super L, M. To me the 567 still takes the cake. That is one heck of a machine.

those 510 deeres look like a plugging SOB! 2 rollers that arent very far apart that all the crop has to pass between doesnt seem like the greatest idea to me. 8450? what the heck for? A/C? wet ground? doesnt have another tractor big enough? i know i pulled my sprayer around with my 350 horse 8630 just because i wanted A/C that day lol.

The 510 deere is the worst of all balers ever invented IMO.

The compression rollers idea is actually not all that bad(my vermeer has them too) and as long as the critical gap is maintained and there's still decent rubber left on the top rollerit will swallow anything but a big wet plug.They however cant handle roots and sticks or deer antlers,and it will plug the pickup in a heartbeat or strip the rubber from the one coated roller

I been eyeballing a 535 for a while but they still sell around here upwards of 12 grand and are all but wore out .

grab a 530, and convert it to twin twine arms and build another twine box and you have yourself an older 530 that only costs around 6 grand. i picked mine up for 5100 and it already had twin arms on it, i built a second twine box, and those twine indiactor wheels for it and its been working like a charm ever since.

Haha, the guy only has 2 tractors, a 4240 that cuts hat and that one. Its not worth it to get rid of it and it has pto so he takes the duals off and bales with it. It looks funny, but he is never stuck...

We ran a 510 for 20+ years. We converted ours to 4 wide belts and one small one in the middle. Worked for years. Slow yes, 3-4 mph max, but cheap and easy to maintain, and very easy to fix. Reason we got rid of it was dad tried to put a rock into it, bent both rollers, stripped the cast gears behind the twine box, and couldn't find used parts anywhere anymore, new ones were way too $$. Another common issue on them was the gear box, but ours was still original. They were light, good for damp hay sloughs, definitely served us well, so not much I can say.

Actually I have heard from a few guys that roller baffle causes more problems than it prevents. That's just a couple owners opinions though.
