I ran a 9' haybine mower and a round bailer with my L3010 HST. I was warned I would probably destroy my tractor and/or kill myself. It worked fine - though the machine was slowing down when I went up hills. Towing would be another issue - I didn't want to tow 10,000 lbs of hay with a light tractor.

The L3010 is not up to ploughing or discing. So I got the M9000. There is something to be said about being cool and dry in a nice cab.

Well im going to try my hand at a small hay field this year - 12 acres or so. I have an old l235 with loader and filled rear tires/foam filled fronts. Its a heavy little tractor.

I have a jd 24T baler - 488 NH haybine and a 3pt rake. I am still looking for a tedder. I might have to borrow one for my first year until i can find a good used one.

Tractor bynet has several guys that put up hay with small tractors so I figured I would give it a try.

I cut with a Kuhn GMD 700 ( 9'+ cut) and bale with a Vermeer 504 baler. Use a M 9000 for this. My L 3000 DT is what we rake with. I have used a 3pt wheel rake, a roll a bar and finally this year found a V rake at a good price. Had to add rear hydraulics to the 3000 to pull the V rake but it does a great job. Since adding the remotes I tried a small disc behind it and to my surprise it pulled it fine. It's about 9 or 10' wide. Had to use 4wd but had plenty of power to get the job done.

Just curious what kind of round baler you were using behind your 3010? My baler would give my L3000 a heart attack. In good heavy hay it will pull the rpm's down on my 9000.

Its a John Deere 545 (prior to the fancy electronics) and the only 'issue' is when I dump, the tractor wiggles a fair bit. I use the M9000 for hay now except for raking.

Are you sure your baler is working ok? I used mine for a season, then I decided to have a good look at the innards. One of the part that held the 'rake' or feeder up had busted, and it turned into a major job. I spent a couple weekends fixing up the 'rake' part - straighting sort of angle irons, etc., inside. It turns much easier now, even though the 3010 ran it fine. One project will be to replace the sprockets and chains, once I figure out how to pull of the sprockets.

Mingy, I really would have never thought about pulling a full size baler with a tractor that small. They are little work horses for sure.

My baler is working fine. It's rated for 75 pto hp min. When I said it pulled down my 9000 I guess I should have been more clear. It only does this when the rows get tall enough that the belly of the tractor is dragging them down flat. I bought the wife a new V-rake this year and in good hay it lays it out in a rowe that touches the inside of my front tires and is around 30" tall. If it wasn't for the hay saver wheels it wouldn't have even fit in the baler.

I got the machine with *no* documentation but I had hay to bale. I use my M9000 now, because its a better match up. I don't think I'd try my square baler with the L3010: even the M9000 wiggles and jiggles.
