Last week it was the 1600 pushing silage. This week the 1850's busy picking corn. Been hauling with the 66 and 2-135. The 1550 is taking a few days off,the spring broke in the starter bendix yesterday.

Got close to 40 to pick altogether. A little more than half of it in this field and another 17 when this one's done. Should be in to that last field by Saturday.

Well......I don't want to point a finger and say where I got the decals,I was well satisfied with the quality,but instead of sending me the hydrapower decal,that's what came with the set. Also,the shift pattern decal was for a 550 instead of a 1550 so the top neutral was on the bottom and vice versa. Like I said though,and I can't stress it enough,the quality was second to none.

Your picker looks like its tipping back. When we got ours it always tipped back some like yours. After using a season we moved the wheels down a hole. Now it runs level so the corn spreads across the entire husking bed. Could be you're just running the front a little higher than I do though.

I've been running it as high as I can because of the trash and the volume of corn going through it. I have to keep the primary elevator down in front laying as horizontal as I can get it.
