I have a Gehl 1870 baler and am looking for a larger tractor. How much horsepower in a tractor to I need for this round baler? Also, where can I get an Operators manual?
You need minimum of 70HP with the 1870 model.
Here is a parts book on line.http://pdf.germanbliss.com/1870RoundBalerPartsManual.pdf
And the operators manual shows to cover the 1470 and the 1870. Here is one listed.http://www.manuals.us/browseproducts/Gehl-1470--1870--Round-Baler-operators.HTML
I see some 1470's and some 1475 amd 1875's listed on Ebay , but no 1870's.
MAybe this will help. Thank you.
