had a lely folding table combine worked well and cut laid corn with grass better than mf415 then had trouble with knives running into each other you could turn sprocket to make half a link still trouble brother took chains in wobble box off and trouble solved chains worn unevenly! two new chains and away to go cutting flat grassy corn no problem looked round and was on fire! end of a good combine and a great idea
