Well, they were a one of the best balers Oliver ever built, there are a ton of them around me, theres on down the road from me im planing on buying sometime soon. If you plan to use it be sure to give it a good once over. Make sure the knotters are good and tight because if there is to much wear in the knotter system it will be the bigest B!tch in your life. Make sure the twine knives are good and sharp to. The berrings that carry the plunger might be bad to so check those. The Roto-Flo system that Oliver had was really good to, it gave a good steady flow of material to the bale chamber without slugging but you better be sure the baler isnt out of time because I have herd that some scary sh!t will happen if it is. The best thing you can do is call the Floyd County museum and get the manuals for it. http://www.olivertractormanuals.org/olivertractormanuals-2.html. They should have everything ya need. I would ask for the parts book, and owners manual. I dont know if they have a shop manual for it or not but you could ask for one of those and see. Get a picture if ya can, i could tell ya what more to look for if I can see the condition of the baler.
