One of the down sides of my job is that while I spend plenty of time taking pictures of tractors, I don't get to run them very often. So I was thrilled to have a chance to make some bales as we wrapped up our last shoot.
To be fair, there WAS a big storm coming in and we had six balers with us. It was all hands on deck- anyone able to make anything resembling a net-wrapped bale was told to pick a windrow and go.
I was actually surprised by how easy it was. We were baling 4-foot windrows with 4-foot balers, so there was no real worry about running up the sides to keep the edges even. I could just drive till the monitor sounded, stop for wrapping, and dump the bale.
And it was in an air-conditioned 7530.
Pretty hard to complain.
Heading past some of my bales on the way out of the field.
Especially when you compare it to the first round bale I ever made…
It's a bad picture, but unfortunately, it did that bale justice.
