Somebody on the board here donated a ford conditioner to our 4H club.
It'd match your tractor perfectly.
We're going to try it out later this week hopefully, on our first cutting.
We cut with a sickle bar too.
I've heard horror stories about the things clogging constantly.
I've never used one myself, so I can't wait to give it a try, even if only to see how bad they really are!
