I'd rather have a JD 1209/1219 Mo-Co than a plain old pull type crimper/crusher. My thinking is cutting & crimping at the same time saves one trip over the field. Also IMHO the previously mentioned Mo-Co's are some of the best models that JD put their name on. BUT personally I would chose a NH or Hesston over a JD. I don't like disc cutters for cutting Sudan/Haygrazer because it shatter's the stalk which cuts down on surviving plant population.
To sum it up you just don't know what "FUN" you've been missing out on until you unplug the pull type conditioner on a 100 degree day !!!!!!! :wink:

I can't imagine it being worse than having a clogged round baler; especially baling Maze stalks.

My 1209's (had 2 over the years) never were a problem in that regard. Would pick up a little on the far side between the frame and the wheel, but no problem to dislodge. But:

My peeve was sickle bar related: loosing sections, crawdad mounds, stem juices making a wad of cut material right at the base of the cutter which had to be cleaned out rather frequently so that the cutter could cut, and last but not least by any means, removing and reinstalling the sickle bar.

Thanks for your reply,
