Nh fr550

We are looking at getting a new NH FR550 chopper. The question that we are having is whether or not it will handle a big drum 8 row head? We have had a few people tell us that itís too big for it and others tell us that it will be fine. Our other option is to go with a new John Deere of the same size with a big drum six row head.

Gleaner is cleaner!
