Needing information on this pickup on the roto baler.  Never saw one like this before and asking for assistance on who, what, when, how this came to be on a baler.

I saw this on the auction and it sure had me wondering too. Does it look like a homemade job?

No, it is not a homemade job.  The slide part of hitch is also different to narrow it up.  Someone mentioned that MM had something very similar on their balers.  Hopefully someone can solve the mystery manufacture.

This is coming out of the way back recessed areas of my brain but i thought i remember an article in farm show magazine out 40 years ago about a guys who was putting "standard" pick up heads on roto-balers. Wonder if this is one of them

Appears to be a hybrid but not homemade.  Parts of it resemble parts of the #10 Roto baler.  That baler never caught on but was designed to be non-stop.  It would recirculate the windrow back to the front of the apron while the bale was wrapping on the go.  Page 50 of C. H. Wendel bible show that version, somewhat similar.  Had the conveyor and not the pickup and also the upper device was a conveyor and not feeder device shown on this photo.  Surely, someone knows the rest of the story.

I found more interesting items on this baler today.  The drive shaft from gearbox to baler has had a 5 inch extension added.  The round casting extension almost had to come from Allis as it is exactly the same as existing casting.  The gearbox is then moved over the 5 inches with a different bracket.  Why would they add the 5 inches?  The widest part of the pickup is 4.5 feet wide and the standard pickup is 6 feet at the front.  The swing mechanism is also different than the other balers.
More questions than answers???  Hopefully someone will be able to shed light on this unique baler.   Someone did mention that MM had very similar pickup on their baler. Thank you all.

Must be one of a kind, hard to believe the forum is stumped on this one?  Surely there's someone out there who knows.

I bought the baler and live in North Central Kansas.  The 5 inch shaft extension is more questionable/interesting than the different pickup.  I am also shocked that someone on this forum doesn't have the answers.
