AC Roto-Baler in Action

Don Brown showed off his Allis-Chalmers Roto-Baler in the March 2011 issue of Farm Collector. The Roto-Baler baled hay differently: using a series of belts, the baler rolled the hay into round bales that shed water and stayed usable for longer. And the bales were wrapped with twine instead of being tied, making them easier for livestock to break apart.

We found this video of a Roto-Baler at work – and it is mesmerizing.
