    Welger AP 630 / 730 / 830 is 36cm high, 49 cm wide

    Johnny Queer is 36cm high, 46cm wide

    So about an inch wider as I said



    A Welger AP530 is 36cm high, 48 cm wide.

    If the Welger is 49cm and the JD is 46cm, then the Welger is 6.5% larger for a similar length bale. So if you have 650 Welger bales on a load, 6.5% more than that is 692. So pretty much spot on I'd say.

    I have a NH 376, the second one I've had.
    It bales well most of the time, but every few bales it seems to do one band longer than the other?
    So when the bale comes out its slightly longer one one side, could do with getting it sorted, any of you knowledgable chaps give an idea where to start looking??
    Cheers.

    Uneven feeding/packing, more to do with the swath, and driver if he wanders closer and further away.

    That is what, (imho), that era of NH specialises in.

    It could be a few things. Uneven rows will not help. You could try moving the packer forks a small amount at a time and check to see they are clear on all parts of plunger stroke. (the direction you make the adjustment will depend on which side is longer. Lastly (for what I can think of) it could just be a worn tension plate where the twine comes out of the box. It can be grooved with wear but not apparent until the needles pull the twine thro'. For some reason on our 945 the wear was uneven and the needles tended to yank more string on one side. Took me ages to realise what the problem was. Took off the plate and filled with weld and ground off. Made a huge difference. When the bale has a knot formed but still fully in the chamber, switch off and grab the two strings. If it is the latter problem they will be of uneven length.

    Thanks for replys chaps.
    It's probably your solution Richard, as it is worst when we are re-baling big straw bales into little bales in the shed and feeding it manually.
    I did think it may be one of the hay dogs in the chamber was sticking.
    I will give it a general once over before we need to use it in the field, at least using it through winter keeps everything fairly clean.

    I have 1 of these and have the same problem now and again. I have moved the feeder tynes with alittle success . I then saw a 376 on Ebay which had cranked feeder tynes close to the chamber and the seller said this curred the problem . I'm thinking of getting a pair of these myself now.
