What Are the Value Differences Among 4-foot and 5-foot Balers?
The 4-foot round baler ruled the roost as the most popular round baler decades ago. Of course, in some parts of the country, particularly in Northeastern states, the 4-foot baler still is the preferred harvester size.
The 5-foot baler, however, dominates the marketplace today, as is evidenced from the dealer listings at John Deere’s website, machinefinder.com.
Surveying that site to compare the 4-foot John Deere and New Holland models, 153 balers in different configurations (including crop-cutter or silage-special variations) and options were available.
In stark comparison, there were 898 listings for 5-foot John Deere and New Holland models, testifying to the popularity of this size harvester.
