8560 Straw Chopper upgrade?

We've been fighting with the factory straw chopper on an 8560, it just doesn't seem heavy enough for tough material like wet soybeans and especially grass. We've bent the housing up, and thrown knives off of it.

I know the 8570's have a different style chopper that works and spreads better. Has anyone replaced the 8560's chopper with a different one?

If it does fit REDEKOP make a complete new Chopper for the 8570, maybe another option for you.

I put a chopper off a 550 on my 8560. Dealer had put a chopper off a 510 on when we bought it but didn't like how it fit. Change it around so it would slide on and off like the 550/540. Did a really good job, spread very even and chopped very well.
