    Video of 1980's first cut silage with Ford 7600 and Kidd forage harvestor.

    When I bought this Kidd forage harvestor I thought it would be the bee's knees, turns out it was a mistake.

    We had one on demo once back in our New Holland 717 day. If I remember correctly it had no feed rollers and chopping length was a bit mixed.
    We we kind of looking for a metal detector one after a few incidents with haybob tines so didn't buy it. We got a secondhand 719 with MD on instead,

    Crikey what a poor chopper.
    We used to run a 719 on a 7600 county in 3rd gear low box,that looked like 1st gear slipping the clutch.

    wellington , look on new-holland-club.com , go on vidio page and type in new holland forage harvesters over 20 pages of you tube clips of any thing from a 37 double chop to modern sp ,
    can you send me a nh 240 cut and blow drag chopper they look impressive ,
    any one used the jaguar speiser pre jag 60 ,which had no reverse on feed , taught you as a 12 year old not to push it too hard or you had to wind the buggar out by hand

    We still have our 7600, Dad bought it new in May 81 9000 hrs and original engine
    we had a Kidd double chop though, we used to take the back window out so the forager handle didn't smash it.
    A neighbour had a Kidd multi chop similar to the one in the video
