So having run into trouble in very heavy grass crops today with the old drum mower, I'm starting to think about a new disc mower.(now remember the THINK bit) . What have others bought and what sort of money is involved? needs to be 8 ft. cut and could do without a conditioner.
Recently seen a couple of videos on you tube with operator’s running Claas 3100 / 3200 front mowers and 3050 / 3150 rear mowers.
I thought the 3050 was only available in 540pto and if so how are they operating the front at 1000 rpm?
Any one have any experience operating this combination?
Looking at buying a used 3m pottinger novadisc mower. It’ll be mainly for pre-mowing in front of the dairy cows and the odd field for silage, would only really cut 5 acres in 1 go, but still need it reliable. Blades need to be easy to change. Would it be to heavy for a JD2650 4WD? Some of our...
Looking to get lambs into this. I know they do well on grazed red clover but what it like baled and wrapped provided it's done right.
Sometimes it would be nice to finish lambs inside later on when we are under water or run out of turnips etc.
Looking for a bit of advice on which bit of machinery to purchase first to do a bit more of our silage/hay/straw making in house.
Just a small place so around 2-300 bales silage, 100-150 bales hay and 150 straw yearly. All done in 4 ft rounds.
Currently we have a 120hp tractor and 70hp loader...
Looking at getting a plain disc mower (no conditioner), as should be able to get one that's 13ft-14ft, mow quicker and generally less to go wrong (hopefully!). We have a 6 star tedder to turn it if needed.
Are there any makes that are better than others or some that really should be avoided...
Got the above and get on well with it last couple of years.
Firstly I appear to have dropped a drum? Fallen half inch and fouling the blades and the saucer. I assume bearing gone but no noticeable lateral play? How do these drums strip down?
Secondly would anyone have one lyjng...

Hi all, I have an old but functional kverneland Ta327f front disc mower and I need a few bits to get it ready for work again. One top hat has hit something and is beyond repair, plus the left and right hand blade protector/ skid units are worn out. I wondered if anyone has a mower that they are...
Im looking at a 956xl.
Anything to look out for before buying?
I know it’s over kill but it’s for a bit of haying work. Small baler and mower.
Would a 165 drum mower work or would you take half the mower cut out with the tractor width ?
Hi and happy(ish) new year to you all.
We are planning to turn a field over to grass and make small hay bales for the local equestrian market. About 2.5 Ha total. We have a baler and handling equipment and a Vicon speeder 300 that's been heavily modified to fluff and aerate straw behind our...
