: : We have a MF #10 Baler that we are having problems with.
: : Would welcom any advice that you could give me as to how we might be able to correct the problem.
: : When baling it will only knot and tie on one side can not seem to get it to tie on the other side. Had a mechanic to come out and look at it, said that he had not work on one that old and could not help cost 200.00 and still no luck. I know it has to be some minor adjustment so if you have the answer that might cure the problem HELP!!!
: Try to back off on tractor rpms to about 1950, this should slow down the strokes per minute on the baler. some of the older balers run on fewer strokes than the new ones and the knotters throw an extra loop which goes around the duckbills and will not let it tie properly
from bill hutcheson at hutcheson hay farms.check twine holder arm for string wear.they can be gas welded back 2check bale hook rust.3 check twine finger roll for flat spots,the twine finger must tuch the knotter frame bracket when at top of stroke 4 if a bow is the string move twine dice cam nut and adgust twine dis until you have a 16 of inch between twine dis cam and twine dis arm.the twine holder disc hold the primary end of the twine in the path of material being baled.5 the neede should come all the way up past the twine dics to 2.75 to3 inches max to top of twine disc.6check twine knife sharpness
