Twine Feed Indicator Helps Keep Bales Tied
Thanks to a simple modification, Curtis Connor can tell at a glance if his Vermeer round baler is tying bales properly.
He got the idea after making several rolls of hay that never got tied. "Before I set up this twine indicator, I had to stop the tractor, turn around, and look closely at the baler to see if twine was feeding through the baler. Now I can just look in a rear view mirror and see the wheels turning. It makes me more productive."
Connor used two wheels from a discarded push lawn mower. He removed the rubber tires and painted the wheels two different colors. He then attached the wheels to the front of the baler and looped the baling twine around both of them so that as the twine feeds through, the wheels turn.
