Guide For Belts On Deere 510 Baler
Gary Max Busler, Blaine, Tenn.: Gary had problems from the get-go with an early 1980's Deere 510 baler he bought used three years ago.
  "The belts would cross and lock up in the front of the baler when I started to make a core in light hay. I had to stop, pull out the hay and uncross the belts whenever I started to make a core in light hay, which got extremely aggravating in short order.
  "To solve the problem, I made a guide for the belts to run in. I cut a 10-ft. long highway stop sign post. I used the round bushings out of a GM car's brake calipers as spacers between the two sections of sign posts, which keeps them 2 or 3 in. apart. To install the guide, I placed one section of pipe on one side of the belts, then bolted the other section of pipe to it. I bolted the assembly horizontally into the baler just above the roller.
  "I haven't had a problem with belts crossing since. The biggest expense was $25 for the bolts I used, with all other components coming from scrap I had on hand."
