I have never owned a disc mower or disc moco, for the simple reason that I will only run a mower conditioner and I can not afford a late model disc version. I am very leery of buying an older disc mower, as I understand it they are very expensive to maintain and unlike newer models the turtles are not independently serviceable like the newer models. Depending on your needs I would suggest one of two things, either a newer 488 New Holland mower conditioner which is nearly identical to your 479 but is still in production. Or a late model 3pt disc mower which will sell for similar money to the disc moco you are looking at. I ran a 488NH and 489NH over 400 acres of first cut for several years with very minimal repair. This will be my first year with a 12 foot 8360 CIH hydra swing, I am hoping that it will cut my mow time considerably with the 3 foot larger cut and the ability to maneuver faster with the hydra swing tongue.
