    How do you check the oil level in the cutterbar on a hesston 1340 discbine. I need to start cutting this morning, and when I opened up a plug in the tip of the gearcase, I could not find any oil in the gearcase.

    Well the seasons over but we found a big problem with the used Kuhn FC 243 RTG mower my wife bought back in the Spring.
