I would remove them, and see what happens.

It should not effect the dumping, but it is hard to tell from here.

The keepers are there to hold the box from moving, if it can't move over them, don't worry about it.

At the risk of being rude!

Why is the box sitting so high on the front?

It looks like it is ready to slip over the keeper blocks.

Hope you make it. Dad, My Father-in-law and I are going to try to get down there this year. Would be nice to see her in action. Dad had a 6000 when I was a kid.

I remember back in 1971 I had a red picker like that on my 960. It was totally worn out and it kept breaking. When I tried to fix it I found someone had welded the shafts directly to sprockets and other farmer fixes. I managed to pick 20 acres before I dumped it in the woods. Neighbor finished the remaining 180 acres with his 560 IH with 2 row mounted picker quicker than it took me to do 1st 20.

You have a very nice picking outfit there. Back in the day I would have given a share in a railroad for a rig like that. Spent many fall days on a 3 cylinder 4000 with a 601 picker mounted on it. Picking corn was the only job that was dirtier than than a hay baler. Joe

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
