Hi John, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. What is the serial number of your baler?

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Since the problem switched sides check for any worn components at the hinge area or any twisted, damaged binding,or out of alignment tailgate parts. Try this on a level surface to see if anything is twisted or shifting causing it to bind. Let me know
