The 1600 is the largest capacity pull-type forage chopper you can buy says New Holland. It can handle the largest horsepower tractors and, as a minimum, the company recommends that you use at least a 170 hp. tractor for powering and pulling the new high-capacity chopper.
Designed to chop over 100 tons of corn an hour, the 1600 is said to be theonly pull-type chopper capable of handling both four row wide and narrow cornheads. Both whole plant and ear corn snapper heads are available, as well as a 3 row head and the windrow pickup. The windrow pickup head mounts on the same auger base that the cornheads use.
The 1600 is equipped with a 24 in. dia., 25 1/2-in. cylinder with double edged reversible cutting knives. The cutterbar can be assembled with 4, 6, 8, or 12 knives. A built-in sharpener is included with the unit.
Five different recutter screens are available and the length of cut range is 3/16 in. to 2? in.
The chopper weighs 5,900 lbs. and has 14L-16.1 tires. Its tongue pivots hydraulically from field to road position.
Sells for right at $26,000 and will be available in early 1983.
