Today the bagger finally got here so Dad & I are able to get going again on the corn. I hooked back on to the chopper, swapped tires on our wagon because the flat was fixed now, and went chopping. I was chopping the least 2 rows of one small field I started last week, when I smelled hydraulic oil, but didn't see anything.
Another few minutes, and I lost all hydraulics on the 1855. A hose blew right off the pump, under the platform on the left side. Was a short hose that just looped around to another fitting, and I had some time yet to get a new one made up.
I fixed that,finished the 2 rows, and came back to the farm. I greased the chopper again, looked it over etc... before going down the road to the next field.
After supper I chopped 3 more loads, and when I tried to unload the 2nd wagon (Gehl 920), the bottom beater came out when I went to see what was going on. I happened to be right by the discharge side so I actually caught the beater before it went up the conveyor on the bagger (that could've been REALLY bad) and not only is the beater junk, but it snapped the shaft coming our of the gear box as well. We'll call up Gruetts in the morning and see what they have available to rent I guess. If it were just the beater, we have 1 more extra one in the shed that I made up out of a Meyers beater. But the whole dam thing broke to no luck there I guess...
