It is probably due to rolls vs flails. I didn’t get clean cuts on second cutting with my 1409 either. It wasn’t that bad just not as clean as flailsThat's impressive. I tried high skid shoes on my NH 1411 last year and the cut was not what I could call clean.
Sorry Leeroy, I have no haybine knowledge to impart to you.
I cut with NH 7230 moco. Usually cut OG of highest setting with stubble shoes. But, as I said "usually", yesterday I cut on middle setting to cut any emergin foxtail short.With the 477 haybine (w stub guards) I always cut at the highest setting on first cut.
Does anyone drop down for second cut? Seems like with the stub guards it does not cut
the leafy crops as clean.
