    Bear problems

    As bitty said, not going to hurt any part of a chopper, bone is softer than rocks, stones are extremely hard on chopper knives We were more surprised that it didn't plug the machine, considering there was a header full of corn being fed into the machine at the time

    Bear problems

    We do custom chopping, see bear damage in corn frequently. Last week we were on a farm that had heavy bear damage, was running them out of the corn on each field as we'd finish it up, last pass in the last field I was driving along the chopper watching as I wanted a picture, sure enough I could faintly make out a bear running ahead of the cutter I jumped out of tractor to grab a pic as he ran out, except when he got to the end he turned and ran straight into the chopper, claas 970 snorted a bit and it was over

    Thanks guys for the input so far, basically what I'm thinking is if the loader valve could be plumbed into the existing lines feeding the remotes would be the easiest and most economical option, would still leave the rear remotes available for implements, ain't likely he will use the loader and rear remotes at the same time imo....

    Hello red power friends New member here from Virginia,got a small problem concerning a customer's 3588 tractor.

I've not seen the tractor yet so just doing a little homework before I look at it,wondering if anyone on here has any knowledge of these tractors hydraulic systems and whether there would be ports avai
