dan 3445 152 JCB either
This pictures was taken in 1996,when contractors come in and
do your silage, this is one of the contractors tractors it's
a jcb 1135 4WS powering Reco SN40 forage harvester,Now the
same contractor Has a New Holland TM150
Would the JCB not be too fast for lifting a heavy crop of
grass? Does the row be in ten foot or twenty foot rows? What
kind of mower has he got? What horsepower has the JCB got?
What speed does he lift at compared to the NewHolland?
hi peter,
The fastrac wasn't too fast at harvesting the crop, it had a
very good selection of gears for the job and the contractor
was pleased with the preformence of it. The main reason he
brought the machine was for the road speed to get between
jobs, but as the remaining 3 tractors in the contractors
fleet were 40K, it wasn't really worth it :-\ . The rows he
was harvesting were 10 foot from a JF mower. The New Holland
was alittle faster at harvesting, but it depended heavily on
the crop. Although the New Holland only managed 2 seasons
foraging before it was replace! it jst couldnt cope with the
hard work. The contractor now uses a large Massey Fergusuon,
which is alot more power full then his last two tractors and
the rows this year were raked into 20 foot skats. This
contractor brought two new 12 ton West silage trailers this
year, so i have the feeling next year he may be using a self
propelled harvester, which i'm sure will speed up our
