From the early moments of spring growth to the final instants of baling, the haymaking season is comprised of a multiple step process. In order to ensure the best bales of hay are produced come year’s end, proper tools, techniques, and equipment need to be put to use throughout the cutting, drying (curing), processing, and storage phases.

We’ve taken some time to put together a gallery which includes seven John Deere hay videos, from equipment to technique, that will lead to better haymaking this year.

John Deere: MoCo CutterBar

John Deere knows one of the most important parts of a mower conditioner is the cutterbar. This is why John Deere focuses on durability and performance with features such as interchangeable modules and center rotation with its cutterbars.

John Deere: Net Wrap

The John Deere COVER-EDGE net wrap is the best way to secure bale for faster wrapping and more protection. A demo of the ease of using the COVER-EDGE net wrap is shown in this video.

John Deere: Haymaking – Drive System

The John Deere 8 Series Round Baler has the fewest chains in its drive system, in comparison to the competition. The fewer the chains, the fewer the adjustments, which ensures optimal performance, efficiency and reliability.

John Deere: Crop Conditions

John Deere Round Balers are made to manage all crops in a variety of conditions. John Deere prevails in a test against other industry top balers, as can be seen in the video.

John Deere: Bale Monitor

The John Deere BaleTrak Pro-monitor-controller allows operators to have access to accurate bale formation from the cab of their machine.

John Deere: Baler Belts

John Deere has equipped its 8 Series Round Balers with durable DiamondTough triple-weave belts. These baler belts withstand more force and conditions than its competitions, as demonstrated in the video.

We hope these videos provided some helpful tips and John Deere hay equipment suggestions to have a successful haymaking season in 2014. If you enjoyed this post or want to read others, feel free to connect with us on Facebook or check out more videos on our YouTube channel!
