That's how Fox mounted their heads. They have 2 pegs on each side that the head locates on in V-notches, and then 2 T bolts to hold them on. I know some of the later Foxes mounted something like the other choppers, where they mount right in front of the feed rolls.

For the purposes of using it as a chipper, the apron bed on a Fox works great. You can set it on there and let go before it gets to the rolls, or atleast have a great gguide into the rolls. I know it wouldn't work near as nice if I tried it with our NH chopper, just trying to jam it into the rolls.

The bar above the feed rolls was added, as well as the linkage to the reversing gearbox. Then when something does get jammed, you can work it back & forth from a safe(r) spot than by the belts & chains & shafts.

I'm thinking of cutting the mounting bracket off one of the heads and making a chute for it out of some steel we have laying around. For now though, it works good this way. It'll never see a crop again, as we don't have anymore good knives for it and it's only running 3 right now....

Back in September when I set it up to chop a couple loads of corn while waiting for parts for our 892, I used a spare shear bar to setup a replacement knife and I forgot to take it out. It was in there for 3 loads of corn, several 1/2 loads of hay when we were mixing hay & corn in the wagons, and even a little bedding. When we were chipping with it and almost done for the day, the shear bar finally fell into the knives and bent 1 all to he!!. I took 2 more knives out to balance it. Some of the other knives are missing some chunks, but for this purpose, it's not an issue.
