Bret, I have been running a CCM185 (I think, never was good at remembrin numbers, LOL) for the last 5-6 seasons. I only cut waterways, pasture fields, and hills, that our tenant farmer does not want to do. I also once cut one of his fields, when he had to have emergency surgery, and couldn't cut one of his fields. So I have cut both unfertilized, and fertilized fields. The CCM mower, in Orchardgrass, and timothy, and fescue, can start cutting earlier than a NH haybine, and dries down a little earlier than the haybine. The only crop I have cut with it, that needs conditioning, is Sorghum/sudax hybrid. That stuff takes 5 days to dry down, conditioned, and more than a week un-

I generally cut one day, leave the crop sit a day, then rake the next day. If it is heavy hay, I ted right after cutting. Sometimes, in heavy hay, you have to wait another day, and roll the windrow over, before baling.

The CCM cutter has only 2 cutting heads, which Counter rotate, meaning they throw a mini windrow up as they cut, in the center of the pass. They have 6 reversible cutter knives, a lot like disc mower blades, a complete blade change takes about 15 minutes, Some of the old timers say they cut too short, but you have to keep alert, as these mowers are heavy, they "walk" the toplink adjustment back, extending the link. They don't take much HP to run, but are pretty heavy. I counterweight the opposite wheel, of my ALLIS D-12, and have about 300 lbs weight in the front. Even so, a sack of sugar will lift up the front wheels, if placed on the back of the mower, in transport position!
