We feed cows with two tractors. a FWA that has a feed wagon hooked to it all winter and a NH Tv6070. The bi does all the loader work (loading silage, handling bales, cleaning snow etc). The bi di also pulls the bale processor. 99% of the bale processing is shredding straw for bedding. we shed about 8 bales ever 2 or 3 days depending on the weather. Having an articulating tractor on a bale shredder is very handy for directing straw into calf shelters or around the corner of a building or windbreak. Instead of backing up and going forward again (fwa) , just turn the steering wheel to position the processor. We don't clean the rad very often, not a problem in the winter. The one annoying thing about shredding with it is the position of the hydraulic levers. Our processor is a left hand discharge, and the levers are on the right side of the console which makes it awkward to look over your left shoulder. but you get used to it. We have stalled the tractor trying to shred a frozen bale. but that is rare , straw was baled wet. The tv6070 is a better tractor than the tv145. they corrected the problems we had on the 145 on the newer 6070.
