I do not know much about choppers other than driving trucks for some neighbors. Sounds like models have changed but one of the most respected ones 10-15 years ago was the NH 900 pull type. Another friend ran Case for years. I think there were 4 numbers in the model. 8750 with pick up maybe. He ran a 9130 Case Steiger 4wd with single tires and did thousands of tons of custom in this area. I think it was turned up to 260 hp and would fill a 20' box with extensions in 5-7 minutes IIRC. He did not bother with a hidump because of the time lost to stop and dump.

900 was the predecessor of the fp. We ran 2 of those prior to the fp240 and had no complaints. Would go through a set of liners a year. If processing silage isn’t an issue I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a good used 900 there isn’t enough difference in capacity to justify price
