Had a 6850 which is basically a 7450. Blew the best, but when I came it could blow nothing. 2 wear plates behind the feed rollers, keeps the grass away from the sides of the drum. We blew all types of grass with her. When they are set up correctly they'll work.

Thats some pain in the hole in any weather never mind the temperatures we have at the moment, good shear bar and knives reset to maximum diameter and shorten the chop length, if the spiral floor has wear in it it won't help either, dry grass leaves a residue that kills grass flow.
Heard them talk about a plate been cracked and " green residue ". Was sent for sand paper last night to clean it

Was the T6 able for the fusion? I know of one local on one but it has been remapped.
it should but weight might be the main issue. would have a fun time in some wet spot or up on a hill. i know of a t6.175 (the older bonnet with 6 pot engine). well able to go. i was driving a t7.200 and it would run circles around it. story is what they do for road work and coming up to a slope is turn the pto on as thats how it gets the boost, while moving with the pto on. funnily enough its boost is stupid where if you were slurry mixing with it, it wont boost as you are not moving

Boost works in transport in its own right if I remember correctly so no need to turn on PTO.

Idk we mowed ours last night. I'd say the top is 35%dm the bottom would be 20%dm. So maybe 28%? I'll have to get it in the microwave n find out.
2nd cut I mowed last night on farm started off about about 28% then ended up about 38%in the pit
I got home and mowed 46 here tonight then pulled the sheet off ready for the morning
Will be more than enough wilt

Not sure myself. Just what one of the drivers told me as he caught up to me one day. I do know it 40k electroshift. I had driven a 50k t6 which boosted anyways. Could there be a difference in how the boost would work between electroshift and electrocommand?

It’ll boost once you go to 13th and above anyway, but turning on the pto will do nothing unless there is actually a load on the shaft

That's amazing to be so dry. Was it 28% standing?
