Low-Cost Balers Catching On Fast"It's being well received by farmers because it's a good solid machine and a great value," says John Cheatham about the new low-cost round baler his company is selling.
Long Manufacturing's baler costs as much as 25 percent less than comparably sized major brand balers, Cheatham notes.
Manufactured in Poland with final assembly in the U.S., the baler features manual start automatic single twine ties, hydraulically adjustable 55-in. wide pickups with gauge wheels, selector valves for 1 or 2-spool hydraulics, four-tine bars, 82.5-in. wheel track, and four roll twine box capacity.
Options include dual twine tie, mechanical net wrap, bale kicker, and safety light kit.
Model 2046, which makes 4 by 4-ft. bales weighing up to 1,100 lbs., sells for $13,000. Model 2047, which makes 4 by 5-ft. bales up to 1,300 lbs., sells for $14,500.
