What parts did they have made???? I have 2 1285s and have been able to get everything.
I've run into the same problem with NH- on parts for a forage blower, a number 40. Machine was made in 2002. The part was back ordered for 3 months. I ended up getting one -in 3 days- from Lacaster silo, who now makes the parts for NH. Apparently, NH was waiting to get a big enough order to get a deal. I'm not sure why, as NH wanted 2.5x the price I paid lancaster for the same part.
