I don't know much about bailers, but imagine this wouldn't be possible and is staged/faked. Please tell me I'm wrong! :eek:

Yeah it's fake, seen that a while ago. That's a big baler, doing the massive bales you see in the field around it. Plus he wasn't driving over any straw and the bale he was in was tiny and off sized for a bale.

Those machines are run off pto shaft too so him jumping out wouldn't have slowed it down as he would have the revs set in the cab.

Re: Hay bailers

All that notwithstanding jumping into a bailer would kill you

That's what I thought, I just like the idea of it being real (and someone being nuts enough to do it). Oh well, I'll have to keep searching for a another role model....

Impossible but i was going to try it with my ex boss when he stuffed me out of 1500 quid. Would have been fun to try no one would have missed him
