Re: Just bought IH 1440, some ?'s

Kstater, from what I’ve seen the operators that generally unload on the go will get from 70% to 80% as many separator hours as engine hours and if you generally stop to unload that will drop down to about 55% to 65%. About baling behind an Axial-Flow, some guys get along reasonably well and others not so well. Yes, pull the knives out of the chopper, slow the rotor down as much as possible, and try to bale where you cut early in the morning or late at night when the straw was a little tough and you should get along reasonably well. Good luck with your 1440, it sounds like you bought a good one!
