rare baler?

Recommended Posts

The rarest version is the yellow Vermeer baler with the black platic bits that was an export item for the American market. May not be as rare in the Country it was intended for but try finding one here in the U.K. Not to be confused in the future with the yellow one in the set that was brought out over the last year or so.

The blue one was indeed from the 'Little Farmer' range (you can see the 'Little Farmer' logo on the side in the pic).  It was in set 40561 with the John Deere shaped tractor in the same blue.  It was one of the first introductions in that range in 2002 and was deleted at the end of 2005 along with the rest of the range.  It was not issued on its own.

The yellow Vermeer version of the baler was issued in the USA in 1981 and it seems that only one batch were made.  If they made a similar sized batch of these as was done for the Hesston 580DT, that is reputed to have been only 2000.

The Deutz-Allis and the two versions of the US issue Milk Tanker were also done in similar 'one batch only' runs.

Most of the boxed ones that turn up come back this side of the Atlantic, so there are possibly less over there nowadays than they are over here!
