I saw this ad on Craigslist..
it said this:
"Allis chalmers roto baler has the continous baler serial number but isnt set up for continous baling"

What is continuous baler function on a rotobaler?
Thanks

I believe it was listed as a model 10.  In theory, it allowed forward motion to continue while it tied and kicked the bale.  The size of windrow that Dad said they worked best with would not readily allow you to continue forward motion!  Never heard how well it worked!

Look up Wheatstock on search
RfDeere downloaded some videos earlier this year
There is a video of a # 10 roto baler in action on one of his post which should come up on search.
Someone more computer savy will hopefully post link.

Yes the continuos conveyor is the one over the top of the regular conveyor.  Roto balers make better bales with large windrows and you cram the hay in as fast as you can.  The problem with the No 10s is you had to use a smaller windrow so the material would run through upper conveyor.  There still wasnt enough room and the machines would plug up in the area where it would bring the material up and around. 
 
The No 10s also had the fast wrap gearbox that would allow it to tie faster so the material had less time to go around and back through again.  This was a problem in several areas too, if you had a mishapen bale and some belts were loose when that overdrive kicked in you could smoke some belts.  Also, they added a spring to the twine mechinism for it to run even if the baler wasnt getting any twine so some bales could come out twineless. 
 
The chute on the back was to push bales out of the way so you would not run them over on the next pass by as you were using smaller windrows. 
 
Most No 10s were converted back, some even at the factory.  There are a few of these balers out there with No 10 frames underneith them with different serial numbers.  Any converted baler has a "C" before the serial number same as this one mentioned is.  There are several balers in exhistance yet.  I have the parts to make a complete one if I ever get to it!

Thanks Jim that is very educational...so it sounds like for the most part the continueous function didn't really work and was abandoned?

Yeah pretty much.  A-C offered several updates and that helped a little but still in a heavy wet crop the mechanism didnt work.  I heard you could make straw bales like there was no tomorrow but otherwise it only worked in perfect conditions.  A-Cs final update was to take the baler back to the dealer and remove the continuous conveyors and install a standard conveyor.  Some customers decided to keep the balers complete as they had conditions where they worked.  The conveyor sections I have were take offs from the final update.  I have heard of a few others floating around as well yet.
