JOHN DEERE ADDS TO BALER LINE

A ROUND BALER suited for smaller farm operations is now available from John Deere. The 457 standard baler produces a bale that is 46 in. wide and up to 60 in. tall and weighs up to 1,000 lbs. in dry crop.

The baler cleanly picks up the crop with a small-diameter, low-profile hay pickup that is mounted close to the baler wheels. The double hydraulic twine arms quickly wrap the bale and are adjustable from 2-, 4-, 6- or 8-in. spacings.
