2005 hay cuts
Here are some pictures of the 2005 hay-cut&harvest season.

this is our cuting setup, case mx110 and new holland
Re: 2005 hay cuts
This is our kuhn double rotor rake that we share with my
uncle and case mxm130(demo from dealer, didn’t like it,
terrible tractor). This is the rake we use usually with our
little international that we brought from Holland when we
moved 7 years ago.
Re: 2005 hay cuts
This would be our mx110 and my uncle’s dumper and harvester.
This harvester was bought this year and has worked good with
the alfalfa but when it came to corn we had some problems. I
think it is just because we were running it to many days.

Our mx110, My uncle’s dumper and harvester from the back.
Picture taken by Dutch visitor who was supposed to be
driving the other tractor.

Our mx110, My uncle’s dumper and harvester from my tractor
when I was supposed to not have a camera in front of my
face, but that’s ok, my uncle was pretty bored at the time
and was just looking at his steering wheel.
Re: 2005 hay cuts
This would be our mx110 and my uncle’s dumper going down my
back road to the bunk silo.
Re: 2005 hay cuts
This is the setup that my Dutch visitor was driving, it is
my uncle’s mx110 and his green dumper as seen in my other
corn silage posting where I thought it saw its last days but
it still recovered to harvest again.
Re: 2005 hay cuts
This is what is going on at the pile. Our new Holland tv140
packing away. This thing works really well on the pile, lots
of capacity. Last year I was packing at my uncle’s house
with his JohnDeere 7210 and it could not get a dumper full
of alfalfa up the pile but our tv140 can get a full dumper
up at once with the loader.
Re: 2005 hay cuts
The pile in the previous pic may look small but the tv140
still had no problem getting a load of corn silage up our
8ft bunksilo. although my dad did run it out of diesel going
up the pile once on a weekend and we were lucky to be able
to get a mecanic to come and fix it.:-[
Re: 2005 hay cuts
Roy, nice pics
how does your uncle like the 5830?
what were the problems in corn? we run a 5830 JD harvester
we do customwork with and we havent had no big problems with
it so far. we have this machine 5 yrs now and no major
Re: 2005 hay cuts
Nice. :-)
Re: 2005 hay cuts
Where are you located?
Re: 2005 hay cuts
nice pictures :)
Re: 2005 hay cuts
Our farm is located just outside Canada's capital (ottawa).
The 5830 had a few problems this season, the second day of
corn silage the intake caught fire because something came
loose and started a litle fire in some hay left on it. the
second time I wasn't there and I am not sure what happened
but it was not in workin condition and we ended up borowing
a neighbours harvester behind the tractor. Last year when we
were harvesting corn we were still using a pull type
harvester and it took about a week to finish and we had some
problems then too, the biggest problem was the
airconditioning broke in the harvester tractor. I regret not
taking a picture because my uncle was driving the tractor
almost in the nude with all the doors and windows open. :-P
Re: 2005 hay cuts
Nice pics Roy. What exactly was wrong with the MXM and how
different is it from the TM? How do you like the TS-A?
Last question, do you ever operate the TV140 engine end

Thanks for your time,
Re: 2005 hay cuts
The MXM was the wors new tractor I have ever driven, inside
the cab at idle RPM's the engine sounded louder than the
TM's at full throttle, also shifting is terrible, we tried
an MXM with the ABC shifting but everytime shifting between
A,B,or C the tractor almost came to a complete stop before
it takes of again, The takeof really puts some stress on the
driver's neck. I work on another farm and my employer
recently invested in a TM120, which is supposed to be
basically the same tractor just different color, when my
employer told me he bought it I thought oh no but I see now
there are more diffs, like the sound of the engine and the
shifting is much smoother. so those are the main reasons for
not liking the MXM, also the price was way over reasonable,
thats why we ended up buying the tsa 125 plus the TSA is a
nicer shifter and all around nice tractor for its price. I
just don't like that it's a new holland (not my favourite).
We havn't had much time to test the tsa since we just bought
it this winter but it has worked really well infront of the
TMR mixer, we have great expectations of this tractor. Our
TV140 is also a really nice tractor, we use it mainly for
loader work, the odd time we will pull a wagon with it but
thats about it, we have never taken the loader of but we
have experimented with driving engine end first which is a
whole new experience since the tractor bends in the middle
it makes you think twice about what way your turning the
wheel(this may sound crazy to some of you but I guess you
have to see for yourself). I wouldn't sugest driving it
engine end first with the loader still on the back though.
Someone I know was driving this way with the loader up
pulling a TMR and he just hapend to drivve into the barn and
smash the loader into the top of the barn. :-P
