Re: cotton stripper
Might also consider the JD 7445. Built in late '80's to early '90's, an improved 7440, plus most had the burr extractor (cleaner) factory-installed. The extractor will greatly increase your turn-out and grades, and the difference in $ between a '40 and '45 should be slight. I've run a 7440, 7445, 7450, 7455 (currently own a '03 model), and 7460, with seat time every year since 1985. Good, reliable machines, especially if cared for a little.
