Pretty much New Holland country up here-our dealer is actually one of the largest in North America-I used to guide some of the New Holland guys when they came up here hunting-you'd think when you found the guys a B/C whitie they'd tip you a new baler lol. The New Holland belt balers aren't near as reliable as they're old chain ones were-I had about 15,000 bales through my 855 and hadn't had any trouble with it when I quit haying. Some hay pimps are having their butts pucker this year-two years woreth of hay stockpiled and another big crop up and baled. The seemed to think us old ranchers would forget who put the wood to them in the drought. Two years ago when the canola crop froze and got snowed on-our dealer sold out of those old chain balers in a few days they wewre the only thing that would bale in those conditions. They really got a toehold in our country when guys were baling on breaking-roots and belt balers make for some really good baler fires.
