    Are you talking about tedders in general or this one in particular?

    We got ours tedded out with a khun and made a good job with no complaints from chopper man. Would like one that would ted and row.

    tedders in general , again its usually down to the operator , usually if im heading out to cut and theres a tedder following me im told to make sure there not going to fast , think the record was getting told 6 times in the space of half an hour to make sure told the tedder operator to go steady with it .you dont want to be chopping behind someone thats been tedding and charging by the acre

    Made little video of our process this year, its no big impressive setup like most, but does the job, and means we can do it all ourselves.

    I agree with Tullyv. ours spreads it brilliantly, many fewer lumps than when we used to ted it out. How fast are you driving, we have fairly light crops as we tend to go for quality and mow at 18 km.

    Thanks,

    Sadly up until now my youtube channel has been dominated by my car hobby, but trying to introduce a bit more farming related stuff into it now!
