Modification Shows When Baler String Is Moving
Richard B. Allen, South Brookfield, Nova Scotia: "During the past three years I've had trouble seeing the string when making hay with my New Holland 630 round baler. I couldn't tell if the string was moving or not, which caused me considerable grief. I was dumping out bales without them being tied and also had bales with string wrapped all through them because the string didn't cut off and I didn't realize it was still going out. The problem was especially bad if the sun was shining toward the back window of the tractor.
  "I solved the problem by mounting a small pulley on front of the baler for the string to travel under. When the string moves, the pulley moves, too. I painted part of the pulley black so that I can see at a glance whether the string is moving or not. The pulley - which came off a boat steering apparatus - is simply bolted in place."
