What would be the pitfalls of running this baler on a tractor with rated 75 ho at the PTO.
Would be for light duty personal use.
You can all go to he// . I'll go to Texas.

Do I run 6 or 7 mph in a full width windrow? No.
Can I roll up enough hay to feed my cow herd? Yes.
I run a half width windrow at 5 to 5.4 mph and it eats it up.If I run a full width windrow,I drop back a gear.It might pull it anyway but I'm not wanting to tear up what's working.

You are so right.
It’s not apples to apples I was running a smaller baler.
I had a Heston 745 it was a strain on the 50 hp tractor making a 4x5 versus a 4x4. The 60 hp tractors never checked up no matter the grass or grade.
The 50 hp tractor got to rake.

Case in point, somewhere I saw a picture of A Korean farmer and his Branson (built by Kukje in S. Korea) tractor.....easy to see why they are sold with rice grip F1s and Branson imports them without tires and wheels and get regular F1s from Titan Tire Co for installation here. The tractor was up to it's running boards in muddy slush and going about it's business. I don't treat my Bransons like that.
