Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
This is our Ford 7710-ii raking with a borrowed H&S 12 wheel bi-fold v-rake.

Here we were only raking 25 feet (7.62m) together.
(That's two 12' 6"s)

We also raked together 3 twelves (37.5 feet/11.43 meters), 3 nines, and 4 nines(36 feet/10.97 meters).

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Raking together 3 horrible nines. The neighbor insisted on cutting this, couldn't get it baled, and by the time we got our baler back to this side of the county, it was pretty pitiful looking hay. :-\

Turning the windrow again to help drying prior to baling.

Some of the bales in the back ground...

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
The re-raking also helped to reform the windrows to make it easier to bale.

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Speaking of the baler, there it is on the 7630 waiting to go to work.

I never did overly care for the opening front windows, but for jobs like this I didn't mind it. I was raking at around 1100rpm, it was a sunny 36'C day, and it was almost a novelty. :-)

Last picture.

We're very happy with our 7630, and have been talking of another.


Yes John Deere Nut, that's the baler. How many of them are you running?

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Bapman, thank you. :-[
Like TC said, I just uploaded a thread of baling pictures. 24 pictures I think! :-D
We haul the bales back to the yard with semi trucks pulling 53 foot (16 meter) flat bed trailers. (also pictured in the baling thread)
The visibility with this loader is very good, and without any attachment on it it does not impair visibility at all for cutting or baling. Plus, mostly during silage the 7630 was running triple duty, which means I was too! It was on the discbine, the baler, and loading bales all in the same day, and I was spending 15-20 hours a day in that seat for a week straight. That's why the Fendt 716 came in to the picture.

I may take the loader off for the 110 acres (45 hectares) of barley silage left to be harvested, and about 500 acres (202 hectares) of straw yet that I know of to be baled. Not because of visibility so much, but just to take the weight off so it's not bouncing through the field.

Thanks again, and thanks TC, always appreciated. ;-)

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Good to see some of your nice photos again Josh :-)

I guess thats the problem when you are busy with work, getting the time to take some photos then upload them ;-)

TC ;-)

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Josh, excellent explanation as always. I really envy you cause you have the two greatest brands in tractors and can compare them in the field. Only in the field you can see who´s the "boss".
Excellent photos.
regards,
Victor

Re: Hay & Silage Raking Pictures
Bapman, the price of beef is the same as always, low at the auction, high in the store. :-\ ;-)

No 818.
