We currently have a small round baler it is a GEHL 1400 and it is a 1978 model and needs thebelts replaced my question is should i sell it or trade it in for somthing bigger/better? WE have aroung 50 acres of hay that we bale and we have had some custom baling done the last 4 0r 5 years and it costs aroung $2000 to have about 100 big round bales made and is getting more expensive every year. A friend told us we should lease a new baler and it would cost less money. i have been looking on the net at vermeer round balers are they any good? Also what are your thoughts of leasing?
