I am thinking of putting a straw chopper on a IH 1460 with a 20 foot head. I am a little concerned about the horse power requirement. Has any one ever done this and what kind of problems did you encounter? thanks
I installed the TSR chopper in a 1470 (1460 with hillside) two years ago. Did not really notice any horse power difference in the machine. The gear box swap was the hardest part just due to the weight. I also have the IHC chopper in another 1470 that I am wrecking out if you are interested. Make me an offer.
I have a 1660 and put in a tsr two years ago and it works great no power lose that I could notice. A tsr chopper from sloan express was half the price of a new case chopper and only $800 more then a used one that was missing parts and knives were shoot. If you do go with a tsr i would get the optional 2speed pulleys so you don't have to take pulleys off and switch around for corn if you need.
