AC Roto Baler Ahead of its Time

This was called the AC roto baler and was manufactured by Allis-Chalmers. It made small round bales that were easy to handle. My dad, A.V. Haynes, had one he used on the farm in the 1950s-’60s. We filled the barn with hay and left the rest in the field. The weather didn’t seem to hurt it. Now everyone has gone to the big round bales.
