Unfortunately it looks to be the same video as the first but I'll take your word for it that the process improved to where it worked as it shouldThe second video is more of what was supposed to happen.

Excellent advice! That is definitely on the to do list as soon as I get a few moments. I was thinking of doing just that. Having a journal for tractor settings, garden times, hay times etc. This will help me and the children in the future.Hopefully you or one of the kids took notes on how to set up the equipment for various grass types so it will be easier next time around.
When I'm 6 feet under, this that crawl space will then be 7feet above me.Now, when are you going to jack the house up 2 feet so
Wow! I couldn't imagine doing that many plus having the twine break or not tie on you then having to redo them again. It already takes forever just with 100 ish. There's simply no way you'd be able to finish before it rained.When you are doing 2-3,000 you just don't have time for it.
I learned that one through trial and error. I keep it in low first gear full throttle. Only time I do different is when I'm just picking up the straggling hay.Keep your RPM'S UP and SLOW DOWN YOUR GROUND SPEED.
Compared to having to take 3 bales in a front loader, be lifted up almost to the hay loft door, the try to lift up one at a time and toss it over the lip. This is much easier lol.But it did seem to work pretty good once you got it figured out. I like it. BUT again, it is ALOT OF WORK. As you are finding out.
That's exactly what I've done. I went over his pasture with a finish mower and will continue to for the rest of the grass season. This will weaken the weeds and stalky grasses and encourage the prairie grass to grow in it's place. Might have to do the same to half the pasture next year as well but time will tell.The best thing to do now that you have cut and baled it, go back over it with a bush hog at very slow ground speed, bush hog running fast, and try to chop the left stuff up into smaller pieces...like grinding it up.... cut it as close to the ground as you can.... like mulching it more. It will eventually rot down into the soil.
That is a great idea!We have gone so far as to use old "cones" that they use on the roads for the state workers, like to make you go into one lane and such..... and perched them on top of rocks in some fields
Lol, perhaps in a few years. She had it in first gear low with no gas, just troggling along. Even then she would daze off or look at the neighbors and start to drift towards the side of the road lol.It will make driving a car, a lot easier down the road.
The baler came with a bunch of shear pins when I bought it and I didn't know why. I took them out and thought I'd use them for some projects around the house.... They are now back in the baler lol.We buy shear pins by the dozen or by the box.
Looks like everything is working as it was designed to do over 100 years ago I assume the hay door also works as designed? Nice that you had your hay stackers up top.It's been corrected and here's the correct one.
I had a crawl space like that at this house. In places it was "Army style" belly crawl only. Occasionally push a piece of ancient firewood out of the way. Never enough headroom to actually crawl on hands and knees. Then we found out there were so many problems with the foundation and other parts of that piece of house it was totally gutted and a new foundation dug. It is now comfortable "knee crawl" height. The only original parts of the house are the 5 sided hand hewn ridge pole, 5 hand hewn posts, the 2 hand hewn top plates, 1.5 of the beams that tie the sides together and most of the angle braces. This, of course, was NOT the plan when we bought the place.When I'm 6 feet under, this that crawl space will then be 7feet above me.
