I did not talk with any of the exhibitors demonstrating this, but I wonder if it is something used by the Amish?

Not that I ever saw Have been in the Lancaster PA area and in Ohio Amish,Mennonite areas and never seen this. They all seem to use the motorized bailers and pull with horses. Except did see in Ohio some have even loosened up and have tractors.
Mike I'd say this pre-dates engines of any kind. I do know the Amish use balers pulled with horses, both round and square ones. Caseman, I showed this to a couple of knowledgeable folks in these parts and they had never seen one of these balers. Just another things that made your show so interesting :!: ;)

Jim very good picand love you showed off the horse also .
Betty, you are gonna think his is silly, but I got within about 3 feet of that horse and looked into its eyes. It held its head very still and seemed to be telling me to get that harness off of it. I wanted to go up to it, pet it, and tell it that all would be ok, but I wouldn't without permission from the owner. They were busy getting it hooked to the baler. I am an animal lover at heart unless the critters start messin' with my gardens. I rescued a terrapin from the road today.
