    Might work OK for some depending on rate of use, width of face.
    The trick is to go in with the tines level then close the grab but do NOT lift the chunk you are going to remove , simply rotate the grab forwards and you will not loosen the face to let lots of air in.

    Good to know who you are Big Ted, aye she is powering through silage 100%. we got a new valve direct from holland, welded up the cracks in knives and shes like a new one! However we do have to take our moffet loader tractor very steady with a full block when cutting high up in the clamp!

    It does take a of learning to keep the clamp face going square down the pit!


    give me a shout when you new one is ready for 2nd hand resale in a few years time

    does anybody use a shear bucket? was thinking about gettting one as would make loading feeder a lot easier save dropping grab off all the time?

    what do they push into the grass clamps ok? it would stop maize dropping through...
