nickjohndeere51: I really like your tractor and rake. Do you have any more hay making videos
you could put up?
RustyCarnahan: @brian93ist Yep. Our haying fleet consists of a New Holland 9' Haybine, NH
258 RolaBar rake, and a Massey Ferguson #12 Square Baler.
RustyCarnahan: @nickjohndeere51 No Idea whatsoever. The tach cable is gone without a
trace. When I go home over Christmas break, I'll try to get a walkaround
video made of it so you guys can see exactly what it is.
farmboy30117: Good running tractor! How hard is it to make corners with that rake? We've
always used 3 point rakes but I see a lot of those pull behinds for sale
and ya never know when you need a spare...
horner766: Nice 1010 RCU, I'm still working on mine. Check my page to see some vids of
RustyCarnahan: @nickjohndeere51 At this point in time, no. I wanted to do more when we
were haying last year, but I didn't. I'll be sure to let you know when I
get some made and posted this late-spring/summer.
RustyCarnahan: @brian93ist That rake is a standard, left hand side delivery rake. We
mostly make hay on hillsides, and we make "double" windrows. That meaning
we take 2 passes of the haybine, and make it into 1 windrow. We rake the
first pass from the outside-in, throwing the hay downhill. The second pass
is then raked inside-out, throwing the completed windrow uphill. The reason
we do it this way is that it makes a tighter, neater windrow that's easier
to feed into the baler.
stimulater7: oaten hay ?or pasture ...medow hay ?
Josh Mullins: i think he would if that hay wasnt so thick
brian93ist: new holland is the best everyone has some kind of new holland equipment
RustyCarnahan: @stimulater7 Former pasture. Mostly Bluegrass and Orchard Grass with some
junk in it.
RustyCarnahan: @farmboy30117 As long as you remember it's back there when making turns,
It's not too bad. I've only turned into the rake once with that 1010, and
that was in a backhanded corner. However, every tractor's different. If
they're going cheap, I'd get one. If it has the dolly wheels in the front,
You'll absolutely love it.
nickjohndeere51: @RustyCarnahan Ok thanks! How many hours are on the Deere?
RustyCarnahan: @brian93ist With the most recent addition of a NH 847 Round Baler last year.
