 Baling Hay

Does anyone have any experience cutting and baling hay with John Deere 4600? Is this machine big enough and if so, what size mower and balers have been used?

I have never seen anyone bale with regular sized baler and a 4300 tractor, but it might be possible. Carver Equipment sells smaller equipment designed for these small tractors (see top of page, enter Carver and then implements). I have not seen these smaller units anywhere else.

Dave,

The JD4600 is similiar in size and hp to my NewHolland TC40D (actually a few hp more). I use my TC40D for baling (std square) and pull a haywagon while baling. I do not pull the largest haywagon (holds 275 bales) but use the smaller wagons (only 150ish bales).

Plan on using the haybine for mowing later this year after installing a remote valve on the tractor.

Don't remember the model numbers of either piece of equipment.

At 43hp. your 4600 has plenty of power to pull a standard square baler with no problems. I would bale 1/2 section with an old 8N Ford pulling an Allis Chambers baler with no problem whatsoever. Your problem will be pulling a Swather.Haybine if that's the way you want to go. In that case I used a large 730 JD to pull the New Holland Swather....there you will need horse power. However, you can use your 4600 to pull a rotary cutter or JD sikle bar and then go back over it with a multi wheeled rake to make your windrows....At any rate that 4600 for hay production will do just fine....Good Luck ther's nothing like baling hay
