Quick mod question about the JD 466 round baler

Post by Bryan83 » Thu Feb 25, 2021 8:46 am

Could someone please tell me if a standard round bale collector will pick up the 7500L bales, or do I need a special one? More specifically, I was thinking of using one of the round bale self loaders from the Anderson DLC.

i do not know that baler, but the Anderson bale collectors only accept bales that are 1.12m wide and have a diameter of 1.3m. Same goes for the Ursus aswell.

If you are on PC you can open the <modname>.xml of that baler and search for

Code: Select all

<baleTypes>
, there you will find the width and diameter.

The size in liter usually doesn't matter for the trailer... Its the dimensions of the bale that's being picked up that matters if I'm not mistaken

When it first came out MrSealyP covered it on his mod review and he tested whether a bale wrapper picked it up and wrapped it so I assume the trailers are the same.

On console, and thank you for the replies. I guess I'll just have to give it the old trial and error method.

Don’t worry Bryan I use that baler and it works with the standard round bale loaders so you’ll be fine, think there might be an update coming for it soon because when you power on the baler there’s no sound coming from it only the tractor revs
If it’s not blue then it just won’t do!

Could always Download the mod test map to try it out as there are fields with straw swaths ready to bale.
