Roosty6 Repairs

40 years of rust made for some serious difficulty removing the broken axle from the Old Holland haybine. Working in the 80 degree heat was hot so I took the afternoon off. Had some much appreciated assistance in the evening and we finally got it apart ready for the new axle that should arrive later this week. Chance of thunder storms tomorrow afternoon just in time to soak the hay swaths that will be almost ready to bale.


  1. Cold and heat make any job worse, but a third hand make it better.

  2. Cut my 3 acres this afternoon with my 479 haybine. Checked the axle to see what you were dealing with. Local parts jockey has 3 or 4 of these on his yard. Would have been a local trip to get one here.

    1. They might have weak axles. This one appeared to have been cracked for a long time before it finally broke.

  3. Guess they lost my profile. See unknown
