    We had a lad that did silage for us one summer in the 80s. 7 days to cut 20 acres. There was some heat out of the pit by day 5.

    You'd nearly take a week of stone picking over that :laugh:

    All it's missing really is an old 5000.

    Well, we got lucky. 75 acres in in two days picking 10s. One man and a wagon..:cool1: very blustery for sheeting down. We were very lucky. Lots of places a mile away got washed out of it.

    First glance I though there were lots of long narrow fields that had been cleared of silage, on closer inspection that's a decent bit of rowing up! 5 swaths into 1?

    The wheel coming off altogether wouldn't have been too far away although they have been known to be so stuck on even that wouldn't cause it to fall off.

    Was it the price of a replacement cover or the harm it might do to the baler is what kept you there :smile:???
