Saved on baling charges

| February 2008

When I was growing up on the farm, our neighbor had one and we always used it when baling. The custom baler charged for raking, so this would save some on baling charges. The custom baler was not real pleased with this as the swath would only be 7 feet and that made more trips around the field. But he would humor us and let us use this wind-rower to save a few cents on the bale. These attachments were not used a lot, but on a small farming operation it would save the cost of a rake for making windrows for hay loaders and balers. I had completely forgotten about this piece of equipment until I saw this picture in the magazine.
