"Syncronizers are bad...not too hard to fix if you know what your doing. our 3020 does the same thing...we just deal with it because it doesn't get run alot. We did fix our 3010 since we rake and spray with it."

"We do all silage bales so going 2 high wouldn't work well. I have heard some others say they have issues with that, but never saw anyone actually doing it. The silage bales we get have been excellent!"

"How well does it work to wrap 2 large squares 2 high. i would think you would get air pockets in it. We have an anderson hybrid that can do both rounds and large squares. It was one of the best investments we ever made."

"Agreed. I am a dfa member also, and the crisis maybe be easing, but we have a lot of ground to make up. Dairy farmers have lost on average $100/cow/month since the first of the year. thats a lot of money to make up."

"Not a huge suprise...that seems to be what most of the gov't is about. Even the republicans have been thinking this way. Some of the american people are even starting to believe this way. It is really scaring looking into the future."
