This is my cousin's Nh self propelled square bailer. According to her she's the only one to own one in the state.

Very nice pics. I remember talking to some others [maybe even one of my uncles] about an SP baler and was told I had it confused with a hay monster.
No one believed there were self-propelled balers, but even at 14, I was smart enough to know the difference between a bale maker and a bale collector/hauler.


I sure love those pics of the SP baler. New Holland made some really innovative machines once upon a time.

That is for some serious square baleing. How many acres/day can it cover?

And just to confirm, that is an original factory-built unit, not some custom home built thing, correct?

Yes it is original factory built but I think they are hard to come by. I don't know how much a day it covers, I have wanted to go and get pics when they are bailing, but I always have to work. I don't know if it was in as good shape when they got it. My cousin and her husband restore older and abused tractors. They rebuilt this one and a few others from the ground up. Heres a few more of their restorations.

Somewhere in a box I've got an old advertising brochure from Sperry New Holland from the early 80's. It had one of those in it. Also had the TR 75, 85, 95 if that gives a better idea of age.
