. We used Uni-Harvesters ,mostly for chopping,from 1965 until we quit dairy in 2010. That 768 corn head worked better than the 4 row ,but had feeding problems in some conditions with very tall corn . The 727 chopper could do a good job with only 6 knives to sharpen. The newer 8 knife choppers with low profile corn head fed better but lack a kernel processor. Both worked ok for haylage and there was a 12' flail attachment for green chop.

Neighbor ran a Uni chopper until 10 or so years ago, he feeds out 400 heifers for a dairy. Lot of corn and alfalfa went through his.

I was wondering what that was off of when I saw it on the load in your pictures below!

You wouldn't have to have it very long to change your mind Lee. I had two of them. I had a husking bed,sheller and a combine unit for them. Any little thing that went wrong,it was likely that the power unit was in the way of getting to it to fix it and I'd have to take the whole attachment off. For picking corn on hilly or wet ground,they didn't have enough traction to pull a loaded wagon. The combine unit couldn't hold a candle to a Gleaner. It seems to have just been an afterthought for New Idea since it was the only combine they made.

You might think I'm exaggerating,but I can pick at least twice as much corn in a day with my 325 pull type as I could with that Uni. The only thing they had going for them was the sheller unit. They did a heck of a job and would take snow better than a combine will.
