For the choking problem slow down a little and make sure you are running 540 PTO speed. You may also try weaving into the windrow, this way the stiff hay will roll into the bale form.

Wrapping, be sure and run at 540 PTO speed, do not throttle down.

Arms will drop to the middle, count to 5 the move arms, count to 5 again, and keep moving and counting to 5.

Then look at the bale and see if there is enough or to much in the wraps.

The hardest problem is getting the spacing between the wraps, This will take practice may move just flip switch?> hold for 1/2 second.
