German term or phrase: Heuschoppenbildung
achsgeführte Fronthydraulik, höhenverstellbare Anhängekupplung -> zu geringe Bodenfreiheit (z.B. Heuschoppenbildung)
This is describing a tractor. What happens when there is too little ground clearance? I can't find 'Schoppen' anywhere.

hay/grass build-up in the hopper
Explanation:
Schoppen can have the general meaning of receptacle. In southern Germany it refers to a pint of beer. I would think that the word "hopper" is appropriate for the device that catches the hay.

not enough clearance (to allow for hay chopping, for example)


Explanation:
I am only proposing this based on the sound. The hay chopper is an agricultural machine that cuts hay to make it into feed.

formation of hay balls


Explanation:
this sounds horrible, don't worry, I'm not a Pro.

Deutscher Duden has following explanation for schoppen, v.:

(südd., österr. u. schweiz. mdal. für:
hineinstopfen, nudeln, zustecken).

That makes me think of the compressed and rolled-up deposits of grass I find not only in the catcher but also in the blade case of my mower whenever I choose the wrong hight setting.

Trying to help. Regards
