 JD 24T Baler, Hpw much HP to drive?

I am looking at a John Deere 24T Small Square baler. How much HP off the PTO is required to operate it? Have a compact tractor rated for 20 HP on the rear PTO. Thanks

pjvezz' I would'nt recomend a tractor that small for a 24T baler. Lots of things enter into what size tractor you need to operate it safely. In ideal conditions such as a light windrow, no hills, solid ground, and not pulling a hayrack behind to load the bales a 35 to 45 HP regular size farm tractor with live PTO would be fine. Baling in hilly fields while towing a rack and heavy windrows you'll need something in the 45 to 50 HP range. The PTO power to spin the baler is about half your power requirement, the other half is just towing all the equipment around the field especially if you have a nearly full load of bales going uphill. Please work safe. Frank.

Ditto! Good job Hardwood! The smallest baler horsepower requirement I can remember is about 30pto horsepower. Those old balers plunger speed was a lot slower then the new ones and I'd say the size tractor you have would get about a half a foot push from it if you could get it to spin.
