Carrying First Cut 2007
Here's our first cut of silage coming in. My Massey Ferguson 50B digger loads the trailer behind the Case 585xl while the IH 454 with a bale spike collects the bales from around the field. Got around 90 bales from 15 acres which isnt bad considering half was a newely reseeded field. Some pics of the contractors Ford 6610 on the wrapper to come. :-)

Another one. The 454 has just had a new (second hand) engine to replace the worn out old one. Its on its third engine now ! The wheels are set out wide for working vegetable beds. I usually have two spikes on the 50B to lift two round bales and handle large rectangular bales but one of the front tyres is a bit dodgy so I only put one on !

Re: Carrying First Cut 2007
thanks asaftri,
Your 454 looks nicer to me :-) How many hours has it done? mines from 1971 shows about 6500 but the clock stopped on the first engine. The second engine was very cheap and worn but was ok for just working in the yard. Now with the new engine it runs very well though.
Its interesting to see that your tractor doesnt have a cab, over here all of them have cabs. Also that the lights work ! I have never seen the lights work on mine ! i will fix them one day though :-)

Here is the wrapper in a small field by the yard where we wrap the bales before stacking.

Hey mark jongejan,
We've only just started growing vegetables this year and on a very small scale. we have about 1ha with some potatoes, carrots, turnips, beetroot, leafbeet, lettuce and parsnips just to see how they grow and whether we can sell them.

Another view of the McHale wrapper behind the 6610. Last one as i had to rush off to work carrying silage for a contractor. Swapping from the 454 to a JD 6920 is a bit of a change :-P

Re: Carrying First Cut 2007
the engine of the 454 my spent 8150 hours and he is still a runing, and the engine of the 585 my spend 7160 hours he is model 1983.
in Israel most of the small and old tractors have no cabin
in touch to lights this really not a problem to correct them, you will invest an effort some and you will correct them

today I replaced the thermometer of the water in my 585, the incoming project is to arrange the fuel gauge

Re: Carrying First Cut 2007
wow a 585 as well :-) you have excellent tractors :-)

My 585 is from 1987 and the clock stopped at 4600 hours years ago. I think it must have done twice as much as that now though. I also need to fix the temerature guage and fuel gage on my 585 but never seem to have time. From 1970 all tractors in the UK had to have a cab and from 1976 they had to have a quiet cab by law.

Does your 585 spend all its time on the feed wagon or does it do other work as well ?

Re: Carrying First Cut 2007
thanks :-)
the 454 whole time worked with the food wagon, the 585 with the food wagon because an insignificant accident happened at night the tractor stood in the road and a boy with bicycle was stuck in it and to 454 there isn't a license and insurance then we replaced two weeks to a duration and then we stopped to a part of food with the wagon, a disagreeing the food organizer's truck replaced her
