That is far too complicated as an introduction to how knotters work. It can be explained much more simply with two fingers and a length of baler twine.

Hi Richard. Yes, doing quite well now thank you. Have just about finished the new shed, despite the protestations of the neighbours ;) The Planners even made me put in the position where I really wanted it so a win win situation for me. Everybody seems to be keeping up with combining round here. Some not busting fit but mostly good samples and better yields than was thought possible a few months ago.

How's things with you these days ? Busy as ever I guess. I am also going to PM you after posting this. Got some news for you.

Hi Scooby,

All good thanks, dodging away down here on the edge of the world, corn is in the barn now and they'll be on hedge-trimming and ploughing shortly, mind you others around us still have some w/wheat to do which seems to be taking longer to ripen this year. Plenty of grockels about soaking up the sun (and the rain) this summer, got a house full of B&B as it is.

We did actually do a little bit of conventional baling (small squares) hay & straw this year for some folks around us, mind you we're talking hundreds, not thousands because no bu99er likes picking them up :D what a fine thing the round baler is, ehh :claphands:

Most balers are threaded by following the eyes from the string box. There is likely to be a tension plate close to the box which the string must pass under. After the last eyes (in pairs left and right) the string is passed through the needle eyes (these should be in the fully retracted at rest position). Tie off the 2 string to part of the fixed frame somewhere convenient. Then with care trip the knotter mech and turn over the baler by rolling the fly wheel. Be careful turning the baler by hand as the momentum in the fly wheel and crank can cause the baler to continue or turn backwards in some cases. Don't put your hand or arm in any where with out being sure the crank cannot move. Sorry if that is obvious.
