Ok, we have the baler & it works after some minor adjustments. The original problem was springs were off of one set of "feeders". It works pretty good! Now the sickle bar broke. It's probably 40 years old or so, sat in the field for quite a few years before we started using it. We have a brush hog. Can we use it to cut the hay? I did read the article about modifying the mower by removing a side. But can you cut it without taking a side off? I know the hay would be "chopped", but the goats still love it! Anyone have any ideas?
