A video I made of our tractors at work: 

 

What's that with the knotters at 4:30, does it do multiple  binds within the pack?

 

Last baler I used was a New Holland 276 around 1976

It ties 2 knots on a bale, one at the start and one at the finish. It's a 2008 krone 890.

 

I've sat up there and tried to work it out but there's too much going on.

The knotters haven't changed but I didn't see what those little rubber feet going up and down were dooing.

 

What dry matter in those bales? Weight? and how much plastic per bale cost?

They're just shock absorbers for the dogs underneath that stop the bale sliding back. Ours has got them top and bottom so you can push the last bale out of the chamber.

 

Dry matter varies on the crop, they weigh 4-500kg for good haylage and it's about £3 in plastic for 3 layers (£5 total to wrap bales).
