When we looked at a new mower few years ago asked about drum mower but we're told that they are alot heavier than disc and actually more money. Do find they do give a better cut though

They seem to never leave a verge in heavy lyning crops
 
Just into 3rd hayfield today and my old disco has not done a great job in any of them.
Got me thinking a change for next year might be on the agenda.
The rose tinted specs had me reliving the clean shaves l would get with my 5000 and pz 165

We have a 6ft zetor mower cuts 100 acres or so a year nicely
Dunno what to hard next?
Had one since 2005 done around 1200 acres now and just cut 12 more today. Good among the rocks and hills here when we don't want to wreck the vicon disc mower.

Dunno how many acres we have cut but we have worn out two saucers I think and have a couple of new saucers in the shed ready when the current ones wear out:)

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
