They were real intersting to drive on hills, when going downhill. They would over run the trim steer drive and then you had to feather the lever in to reverse on the side that was overspeeding. Dad put me onto an 850 when I was about 12 yso. SPs were a new concept here then and the idea of gathering 10' of hay and plopit into a windrow, was "obsurd" Dad decided to go out and cut some hay for any farmer who had an intrest. Thats where I came in. I was the operator doing the field demonstrations and driving the machine from farm to farm. To overcome the notion that you couldn't dry hay in a windrow was Dad's job. he was very articulate about adjusting the forming shields to make the perfect "air conditioned" windrow, with a tunnal in the center that a rabbit could run through without slowing down. Elmer Fud hated those windrows, HeHe. Any way I had one very interesting summer on that 850, before it was sold. We went on to sell SPs from 650s and up through the Hesston 6650s through the years.
