Now; A Wg noise is dismissed casually as "just another sonic boom".

IEUTHOLD;W1LUAM3 1 jrttuili-^ \*^S AiOGN». I0*» mi CHOMU chrome knives dged sharp even with haylage ,••»*• Anderson Erickson Dairy Co. Haylage puts a chopper to the "two pronged test." First, low moisture makes haylage tough to chop. Second, it should be short — no longer than Vi-in. The Gehl Chop-All delivers fine chopped haylage . . . fills the bill for all chopping jobs. New Select-A-Cut transmission lets you change forage length—short, medium or long —with the push of a lever. And, new Easy-Swing drawbar adjusts right from the tractor seat for easy maneuvering in tight places. Gehl knives are chrome-edged to stay sharp longer. And, sharp knives mean shorter chopping ... so forage can pack tight to reduce air pockets. Result: Less spoilage; more tons stored per silo. Six knives, flywheel mounted, cut forage from inside to outside (like scissors) against Jhe long-lasting tungsten- carbide cutter bar. Make us Prove it with a Demonstration!
