I could make one off of a 565 A work but one off of a 560 would be better. I know Agco used to make a...

    So I decided to change gearbox oil in my Hesston 1007 mower. One side of the main gearbox had really thick oil in it. Dealer says it's 90wt. The other side appears to have grease and the dealer can't seem to tell me what the heck it is. It's really irritating because I know all they have to do...

    Guys/gals, Any of you ever pull the plunger out of a Hesston 4755 or Case IH 8575? What's all involved (plunger rollers, crank connecting arms, etc), and where should I foresee the biggest headaches to be? Our mechanic at Hoober (Denny Engle, awesome guy) recommended pulling it out of the...

    I am curious if anyone has a challenger SB36 or Massey 1839 and is following a 40' header in wheat straw? I have found a couple of great used ones for a decent price. I would love to try a 1840 out but I don't think that is in the budget right now, so I'm scared to try it. I am only putting up...
