JD 430 Baler

Anybody ever dealt with wear in the bale chamber on a round baler? Hopefully you can see in my pic where I'm talking about, it's just to the front of where the gate opens and closes, kind of above the pickup. Both sides are pretty much the same, just worn through after years of use. Has anybody ever repaired or seen a repair on this kind of wear? The baler works fine now but I think it's time to do something before too much longer and I'm just trying to figure out if I can patch it or if I need to cut the whole area out and replace it.... the later would be much much more difficult.

BTW, the photo is turned 1/4 turn to the right so up is right and down is left.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....

Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...

...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...

" thank you tank for that insightful thought

Yup and if you want to cut some 1.5 inch holes in the middle of the replacement sheet and weld them in also. That way the piece is not just joined together around the edges. It will actually be connected throughout. JJ

As long as the remaining metal is thick enough to weld, I don't see why it couldn't be fixed.

There have always been great bull riders but when you look at those two, they weren't just bull riders, they were stars."
