I have a Vemeer round baler 504C I bought at a sale I didnt realize it was missing so many parts i should have back together next week and try in field.
But I have decided to quit screwin around and go buy a round baler that is field ready, so here are my choices of waht is avaiable around me:
New Idea 483 theres two for sale one for 2500. and one for 4000.
New Holland 630 dont know price Goodrich auction service has that
Case 8420 askin 4250 I would beat him down to 4000.

So Im wonderin what you have or what you think are good round balers?

I can't help you with any of the 3 you're looking at. A few years ago I bought a 435 JD that had less than 5000 bales through it and a new monitor. It's the easiest baler I've ever used and it's been trouble free. I usually bale 5-700 bales a year. I've always had Vermeer and the newer balers are top notch from what I've seen those would be my choice because of the local dealers.

All I know is that twine balers are a dime a dozen around here. Everybody wants net wrap.
