My JD 348 square baler is missing 10% of its bales. It has fewer than 10,000 on the baler. Just replaced twister hooks with little or no improvement.

Several other things could be wrong with your baler. These could include the following:
- The tongue could be having problems rolling properly so try getting a bit of grease on this
- If your unit comes with the adjustable hay compressors try checking the adjustment for consistency
- Also the knotters which comes with the unit might have adjusted a bit thereby making them inaccurate.
- Although the twister hooks which have been replaced might have not been fitted uniformly. Try these problems and if you need any more info on your unit you can visit this link. http://www.deere.com/servlet/ProdCatProduct?tM=FR&pNbr=0348%20E
Hope this solution is helpful?

My 348 baler was loosing pressure so I change oil. now it has no pressure, so of course very soggy bales


Hi ejk56...

Your baler has an "airlock"...it is not pumping the hydraulic fluid to the appropriate valves.
You need to disconnect a hose/fitting on the pressure side of the pump and hold it in a bucket/container.
Then you will turn your pump on and it will prime and start oil flowing into the bucket, after you have no more air in the system, then hook the hose/fitting back up and your baler should work properly.
Please take time to rate me 4 thumbs up

The only information written on my hay baler is Mobilco Super 59. I have been trying to bale my hay but the knots on the left side aren't tying. I adjusted this and it tied a few then the knotter on...


The mobilco sounds like a gar lubricant. I bale myself and work on my own machinery. The first thing you need is the make, model and serial numbers. There shuold be a tag somewhere fastened to the machine. Both of mine have the tag riveted to the flywheel side of the frame.Mine are old john deere balers. Balers can be very complicated machines and you need the manual to dial them in right unless you know that machine like the back of your hand. Sometimes you can have tying problems from bad twine that might have been damp or knotters rusty and not moving right. Some times penetrating oil on the moving parts of a knotter will do wonders. I am assuming that you are talking about an old square baler since I dont know what you have for sure. I started having problems with mine when the twine started wearing a pretty deep groove in one of the parts it dragged across (dont remember which part it was) but anyway, I replaced and reshimmed accordingly, and it ties really good now. Hope I could be of some help.

The shear pins on the rake keep breaking on a 853 NEW HOLLAND ROUND BALER. What is ?


Do you mean the driveline protection shear pin (pickup, roll the bale and wrap it) or the overfill protection shear pin?

For the driveline shear pin, check the type of pickup that you have. Make sure that you have the correct shear pin for the pickup (wide or regular). Also check the year of your baler, there are substitute shear bolts available that do not work on a range of the 853 baler. New Holland has a parts list for the baler on their site. Start at http://partstore.agriculture.newholland.com/us/ and use the Look up parts by equipment on the left of the page or see your manual. Next check the air bag pressure. (Make sure that you are in the operating range with a regular pressure gauge. It's possible for the gauge on the baler to read low.) If the pressure is out of the operating range, the roller bars can hit other parts of the baler and cause the shear pin to break.

If your baler uses net wrap, make sure that the wrap isn't caught in the unit. (If the knife doesn't cut the net wrap, it will get caught in the tailgate and the rest of the baler. If it tears in use, it may wrap around the pickup and cause the shear pin to break.) This may apply to twine as well but I do not have experience with it happening with the twine tied 853 baler.)

For the rest of the checks, you will have to remove any bale that is in the baler. If it is large enough it may roll out even if it isn't wrapped when the tailgate is up (try driving up hill). Otherwise, you need to pull, cut or pry the bale out. Standing on the kicker can help the bale roll out if sufficient weight is added. We've found that a spare bale spear works well. Removing the hay in small sections can also work.

What is the moisture of the bale? If the bale is too wet, it will be too heavy and shear the pin before the bale chamber is full.

Next check all of the roller bars in the unit. If any are bent significantly, that one can hit another part of the baler and break the shear pin. It's possible to straighten some of the bars out depending on the damage. If the bar is S-shaped or severely bent, replace it. (Your New Holland parts store may have someone who will demonstrate the technique for bar straightening. It involves hammering the bar straight when it is securely held in a vise. If you can hold the bar safely, I've also seen a bucket on a front-loader straighten the bars.) If a rock gets past the windrow guard, the bars can get bent.

Check that the chains are centered and that none of the gears are shifted to narrow or wider paths in a spot. (There are bars that can be adjusted between two sets of gears near the top front of the baler. Loosen the four bolts and push the parts closer or pull them farther apart.) Check that none of the bearings for the apron motion are frozen or damaged. Replace or repair anything that is damaged.

Do not make the bales too large or uneven. (If you have a Bale Command unit on the baler, it is easier to control the even formation of the bale.)

For the overfill protection, make sure to reset the unit after replacing the shear pin. It can be tough to pull the trip arm fully back. Make sure that nothing is in the tailgate. If your baler has a kicker, make sure that that the two springs on the sides are undamaged and holding the kicker level.

I hope this helps.

(my 853 baler with the wide pickup uses Driveline shear pin 46520 and Overfill shear pin 46047. I'm not sure of the year of the unit. When we got shear pins with a different number, we broke 3 or 4 in a row before realizing that we'd gotten the wrong ones; they were noticably thinner than the required ones. Roller bars are what I call the bars between the chains and we've replaced/straightened many of them.)

Hay baler twine double knot


Your timing belt has slipped. If you have the repair manual for your baler, this is a relatively easy repair.
