We recently had a concrete pad poured and put a 5x20 manger in the middle that we load with round bales. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to clean wet/undesirable hay out of the manger other than just shoveling it out? Over time, it’s gotten pretty packed in the middle. Our tractor is 70hp and when we get 4 or 5 rolls in there, it won’t push the bottom stuff anymore.

With it being only 5ft wide it sounds like a lot of manual labor is in your future. Either a smaller tractor or a wider manger is the options I see.

What is that a 656? I have a 706 with a 2000 loader. Good old tractors.
I don't think it's a 6. I have a 656 that ran the feed wagon every day until the wiring got a little to hit and melted all the insulation off.
Not sure what model it is, but I think it's a hyro.

After looking closer I think you’re right. That’s not a TA handle it’s a hydro. That would make it a 26.
