  16. My old neighbors in western New York run a 100 cow dairy and still use elwoods full time...two 1066mfd...and my old 1586mfd that I sold them when I moved to Florida. The man that bought my 1586 new also had a 1566mfd and a 1086mfd. He pulled a 3row 1250 gehl with the 1586. When it got muddy he would hook the 10 and the other 15 up to the front, had a special hitch on the front that ran a cable down to the drawer so as not to pull on the frontend.
