As I said on another thread earlier in the fall about snowed on down crops, that I never use lifters, just adjust table accordingly...well I won't deny I was wishing I had some kind of lifters this time around for my oats. They were even flatter and like they had been trampled right on the ground then conditions when for example I was cutting them with snow on them couple years back. Were laying in all directions and the worst tangled mess I have ever cut and unfortunately I've done this before several times, thats why this time really was noticeably worse. I think it had something to do with the timing as per maturity of crop when it snowed and how long it stayed.

Contracts are made to be broken, a handshake is the law of God.
