Follow-Up On Non-Stop Round Baler
Thank you for your writeup about my non-stop baler that eliminates the need to stop when tying bales, allowing it to work at speeds up to twice as fast as today's fastest round baler (Vol. 22, No. 4). I've had a lot of interest from farmers and contractors, but I do not yet have a deal with a baler manufacturer.
My baler has an 8-ft. long bale chamber that's positioned at right angles to the direction of travel. An offset pickup feeds hay into the bale chamber. After the 8-ft. long bale has been formed, a retractable knife cuts it in half. I'm now building a new working prototype which I think could increase the output even more - two bales in 45 seconds or 100 bales per hour.
