Just catching up with this Daniel. 

It's good to hear you have that beast back up and running. I hope the weather holds for you and you can get the silage pits filled on schedule.

Got out of the milking parlor as fast as I could....HOT as heck in there!  Forecast calls for clear weather all through next week, so hopefully we fill this pit by end of next week.  That would leave just one more to fill, another week to 10 days chopping.  Cutting it close on the plow day, but we should get done in time for me to bush hog the stalks down low.

Woohoo....bonus tomorrow.  Dad just called & asked if we'd like to go to "The Lighthouse Restaurant" for a late lunch.  I said "I thought we'd chop the better part of the day", then he said "we'll chop till we're ready to go eat"......no argument from me....their food is superb!

He asked if I wanted to go...he didn't say he was buying!  :smilewink:   No matter to me either way.....great food!  Came in for a chocolate milk.  Dad just told me we'd quit at 10:30, so not a long hot day at all.  Was only 64 when I went out, and still just 67!   Next week we're gonna melt!  By Wednesday heat index 103 to 105!  Loader will be running pretty warm then!

I am afraid that thing would squeeze ALL the water out of the silage!  It can't ferment if totally dry!   Wish I had airless tires on my 910!

. I wonder if ballistics gel would work? it's a lot cheaper than that tire filled gel, at least I think it is.

Daniel, I believe that loader has the chain protection on them and aren't the airless like you are talking about.

 

Here is a neat video of how they mount them, it's about 3 minutes long.

I'm just going to say "The makers of that video should be punished for making it look so easy"

 

That is all.

A buddy of mine has those on his loaders in his rock quarry and yes they don't go on that easily.

Yes, looking closer I see it is a chain set.  At a glance it appeared to be the swiss cheese solid rubber airless tire like used on skid steers.
