Thanks. I've yet to weigh a wet bale, but the 5x4's will make the front end of a tractor stand up if it doesn't have a loader on it when using the wrapper. I've got one of those old 3pt deals similar to an Ag Wrap, right smart of a pain sometimes.Dry bales average about 1,700 lbs, silage bales all over the map depending on moisture. 2000 lbs is common. But some of my silage bales are actually about 2 percentage points off of being hay. Some will about lift the back tractor wheels off the ground when you pick them up with the loader.
