Is there anyone using the removable prechop mechanism Krone offers on their big balers?
Looking for feedback, are they more headache than they're worth?
What sort of job do they do?
How tough of crop and what sort of volume can it handle?
After some advice from anyone with a bit of wifi and camera knowledge. I know nothing about the subject so please be gentle and spell things out! I’ve got wifi and internet in the house. The bulk of the farm yard is across the other side of a main road, this has no mobile signal or wifi but has...

Why is it that theres hardly no claas forage wagons sold? Is there a problem with them compared to strautmann, poettinger or krone or are they just to expensive? Seems odd that they arent more popular as claases grass equipment always sold well as in harvesters mowers and rakes

Is your local dealer...
