I used the new baler yesterday evening. I was able to make one roll amd that was it. Couldn't get the bale to eject. It took three hours to get the bale out of it. I wasn't sure if it was the %&$&*% hydraulics on the 285 or something in the baler.

Finally had to call TC.

He came up, looked it over and and said "Y'gotta hammer or a pry bar?"

It seems the safety latches are a little bent. After I do a little minor torch work it should work fine. About two hours and I'll be good to go.

On the plus side, it makes a very nice, tight roll.

As TC told me before he left "Surely you didn't expect you could just go to the field and have everything work right the first time?"
