Denny, looks like you run some older equipment too. I have an Allis 7060 but mine is dualed up. They are a good tractor.

On the silage pile, do you stop chopping to dump? Or do you have 2 wagons? I've never seen it done like the pic shows, but looks like the silage is good quality, nice pack and even.

We run 3 boxes one on the chopper one inbetween and one one the pile if its a longer haul we have another small box we use also.

The corn was about 18 ton's to the acre and around 150 bushels it's going to make some good feed.

I feed it with a hot wire strung across just keep moving it back every day like a big self feeder will post pictures on that this winter.

That 7060 is cheap horsepower I gave $5000 for it 3 years ago and have put new rear tires on it.Wish I had duals for it but havent found any yet.

I paid $10,000 for mine 3 years ago, but the motor had fresh bearings and the tires were 70% there. I figured I had a deal.
