Took a road trip today to pick up this IH 430 parts baler. Couldn't pass it up for $100.00 and he thru in some other knotters, driveshafts, and misc. parts. It just barely fit on our flatbed trailer. Luckily the seller had an AC 175 with a loader and was able to pick it up and drop it on the trailer. Now we have to figure out how we are going to unload it. It has a broken gear and a damaged hay fork, but with all of our spare parts we might be able to get this going again.

Hmmm...going to be tricky getting it off without lifting it off. Looks like you have some work ahead of you to put that back in working order.
We are going to pull the hay pickup off and then see if our loader can lift it. If that doesn't do it i think we can use the ramps by laying a heavy metal beam across the deck so the ramps will be just outside the edge of the trailer. Then bolt on another wheel and roll it down the ramps.

Got the hay pickup pulled off this afternoon and took the shear bolt out of the hay packer fork to free it up.

Unloaded the Baler today. Everything went pretty smooth with no problems. We got the hay pickup torn down ready to clean, paint, and reassemble.
