Nicely restored. I've seen two of them locally, one had 2 Wisconsin motors like this one, the other was a bigger one with a 4 cyl. Ford petrol motor driving it.

Yep. I've seen that one quite a bit. He just lives up the road a bit,
and for a few years brought it to every little parade and show around the county. ;)
It's actually the only one like it I've ever seen.

nice find i have seen some pictures of those but never seen it opperate. quite an idea for its day. i wonder why they still don't make self propel balers, we already make self propel combines and choppers, heck i have seen pictures of a self propel disk.

I knew NH built one years ago but not that a company still builds one. The NH is one of those machines that I would like to operate for a few hours.....mike

They were terrible to run, hot, noisy, underpowered, 2 motors to keep up and the dust was right in your face. I have run the newer version with 1 engine, not much better. I owned 2 of the first freeman balers without cabs, same problems. Of course early swathers were bad too but usually the crop wasn't as bad as hay. Alfalfa and red clover were bad though. Pull type swathers, windrowers and balers were at least a ways away from the operator....James
