    Any body had any problems with straw or silage wrapping around the drive shaft and blowing a seal on a manitou 635 -130? I've been told by manitou they've never had a problem befor, but it's happened to me twice, and that there isn't a option of a belly plate, anybody else had a problem with it?

    MF3125 Syncro Crunch

    Hi all, I hear the dyna 6 box has issues over time. Anyone know roughly how much it would be to repair a MF3125 3rd gear crunch? Asking to see whether it’s worth buying one and doing the work or to spend more on a working machine?

    Is a lack of affordable bedding a reason for dirty cattle or a reason to sell cattle on welfare grounds?
