Nyhof Canada 420565 158 Fendt 714 Stuck either
Fendt 714 Stuck
This is the telehandler digging the manure away from the 714 which is sunk deeper than the axles in bedding pack manure.

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
The wheels are silver actually. AGCO has probably something to do with the color of the wheels in North America.

I have seen some of the larger models over here with the silver wheels too.

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Thanks for the pics Nyhof. Looks like you need some fenders on that LM-A! :-D

Looking at the bale processor, and the 930 in the background... when was this?

We do some bedding pack as well, however we clean ours completely 2-3 times yearly. Much of our bedding is still put out in shelters.

By the way, see your bale wrapping thread.

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Why spread straw on a muckheap ??
If you want to use the straw directly as muck, you could as well leave it in the field... :-D

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
This isn't exactly a muck heap Renze, it's a bedding pack. Manure piles would be about 15 feet high, and would be piles, not a pack right in with the cows. Looks at his message history.

Bedding packs work really good for the winter, but as a dairy Nyhof spreads more frequently, every day I would assume, where as we only have to every 2 or 3 days depending on the weather and how much time they spend on it. He's putting out more layers, more animals, and probably cleaning either equal or less frequently.

This only became a problem in the spring, and Southern Manitoba is especially wet.

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
TC, Schizo: This was yesterday, the last day that we had to bed the cows for overnite, as from today on they are on pasture. There was a very strong north wind and from the concrete alley the straw was blowing the wrong way so the operator drove on the bedding pack and sunk away. In winter we can drive all over it because its frozen but not after the rain shower we had two days ago.

Bobman, TC, Marty G: Since the fendt came to America the wheels have always been grey, but this should change to red within the year. Im not sure why they did it.

Marco: Thanks you opinionated Dutchman! (i can say that, I am too!) Maybe next time do some research before you state your comment.

Josh:The fenders on our previous lma vibrated off and got broken, so on this new one we took them off when it was delivered so we got a better resale value, they dont stop any mud anyway, the machine still gets terrible dirty.
This happened two days ago, the spreader just finished its second season, and the 930 is spreading manure at the moment.
Since our cows stay in the bedding pack 24 hours a day we cannot clean it out, so we do it once a year. The cows are bedded every day.

Renze: Josh has a perfect explanation for you.

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Nyhof: Ah I see, I haven't spent any time on the lma aside from a quick spin on the dealers lot. I had thought about renting one for silage this year, either an LM435A or a TG245 with loader, but it looks like we probably won't need to.

After putting the engine end fenders on the TV145, I swear it's impossible to get that machine dirty. The Deere on the other hand.... tres dirty. :-[

Well of course it had to happen on the last day!

Do you have two spreaders as well or...? I thought you had the Degelman now....

I look forward to some spreading pictures...

I understand your cleaning predicament. Often we only clean once a year as well, usually in June, however sometimes we need to clean the main winter pack once during the winter, or in the spring. Only spreading once every 2 days, doesn't take us nearly as long to clean it as it does for you.

They can sure sink quick. I had the opportunity of getting some stuck pictures today, but decided against it. My dad took the 7630 and the processor into the calves pen to throw some bales in for the yearlings. I had taken the 7630 into town on the weekend, so I'd taken it out of Auto 4wd so that it wouldn't kick in and out on the hills. When I got home, I never bothered to put it back in, and it wasn't a problem. Now 95% of the pen is completely, but he managed to go find the one 10 x 10 spot that was a bit soft. Wouldn't have been a problem except that he was in a full steering lock with 2 silage bales on the loader when he went into it -- in 2wd. Now those 710s on the rear can shift some material when they're spinning. I saw the rear tires start to slip, and by the time I got halfway across the corral to the tractor the bottom step was already sitting on the ground, and so was the hitch on the processor. Put it in Auto 4wd again, and it clambered out of the holes like they weren't even there. And this was a dry corral!

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Josh: Were renting the neighbors husky spreader on the moment. And yes we still have the Degelman. I have taken pictures of the manure spreading but havent had a chance to put them up yet, sometime in the next few days.
I'm thinking it will take us all summer to clean up our bedding pack. We have our own truck to haul it but we'll be pretty busy with baling and milking that we wont be able to focus on it for a continuous period of time.
So what do you do with the JD in town for the weekend?

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Nyhof, I'm not familiar with the Husky brand, not very many guys in the area spread liquid manure. You have two bale processors going at once now?
What do you do with all the solid manure? We pile it in June, then at the end of the summer we load it into the truck (we have a 30' dump trailer for the semi) and stock pile it elsewhere. We find that by piling it once, at about 15 feet high in June, then in September it's only about 9 feet high, and it's a lot drier. This equals to more capacity, and fewer loads.

Well I must confess, I didn't have the JD in town for the weekend, I just took it in the one day, took it to the car wash. Washed 1/3 of the trucks, the car, and the JD. Figured it was SO dirty that we didn't want any more of the mud and water around the yard this spring.
Plus I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go roading with it...;-)

Of course, genius here that I am, I came home and hooked up to the bale processor and went to feed --- dry hay. :-\

Yes, we're still processing, will be for a couple more weeks. We had an incredibly wet spring, much of our pasture is underwater. Probably 2/3s.

The county has been trying to drain our place, and the one guy was saying that he's got places nearby that there are entire quarters under water. 160-180 acre lakes, with only a few trees sticking up here and there. :-(

Re: Fendt 714 Stuck
Nyhof, Josh A,

Off course i am aware of it being a bedding pack, but i was just making fun of your mess of that day. :-D

When i was in Canada 2 years ago, i heard of a farmer who experimented with a hillside bedding pack, so the cows would tramp the muck off the slope so he only had to spread fresh straw on top of the hill. It worked quite good, but when the frost set in, the muck didnt run off the hill anymore so it worked as a conventional bedding pack..
When the spring defrosted the muck, on an unfortunate morning the bedding pack with cows and all, slid off the slope and several cows were injured or killed... :-(
