I am looking at picking up a Allis Chalmers model 500 hay conditioner. I am not real familiar with this piece of equipment. I am needing something to crush the steps on our heavy clover to get them to dry down for hay.
Is there anything I should watch out for on these?
Are the rollers both metal? They look like they are from the pics but I havent seen it in person yet.
Do they do a good job of crimping the hay?
Are parts available for them?
Is the roller gap adjustable?
I know its a lot of questions. I have just not been able to find any of this info through google searches.
