Dropping straw with a 670 or MF 9790?
I have a Challenger 670 and tried dropping some barley straw with it. It spread the swath about 7' wide. Has the factory chaff spreader and straw chopper.
I was thinking about using some UHMW sheets to build a chute below the rotor discharge to keep the straw off the chaff spreader and make a 5' wide swath. I'm not sure if it will hang up on the chopper or do I need to remove the chaff spreader to make this work?
The manual is less than helpful. Just says to slide chopper back. Just curious how others setup these units for dropping straw?
