I had a bigger tractor on the chopper but it broke down so I stuck the 1800 on it to keep moving. Slow going for sure! First gear with the hydropower pulled out for most of it but she got the snot worked out of her and just kept ticking them off. Gotta love four digit Olivers.

I bet the gas wasnt real torquy. I worked for a dairy farmer he had a 1800 diesel and all it ever did was run sileage blower, didnt do bad.

What kind of gas consumption did that thing get while chopping?

Our 1600 gas usually runs the blower. Not sure how it does gallons/hour wise, but it's not too awfully bad.

I sent you a reply but it never went through. Cliff notes is 10 gallons of gas chopped 7 big loads so somewhere around 1.5 gal per load. I've heard horror story's about 3020 and 4020 gas tractors and it wasn't near as bad.

I sent you a reply also but didn't go through. Here goes again. Yes a c, 1964. That six cylender sure sounds nice. I bought a allis chalmers 7000 a few months ago and was going to use that but had some problems with it. Nice pics on your post, thanks.
