Don't know. I just know there used to be the same arguement about sickle vs flail. The claim was that flail was harder on the plant.

I can tell you that flail is WAY harder than disc mower. Mowed hay for years with a NI272 flail mower. After I mowed the stubble would burn brown, then back to green, then start growing again. With the discbine it stays green and starts growing right away.

If you were cutting alfalfa, that coloration cycle is due to the timing of the cutting. 2nd cutting crowns may have emerged by the time you made first cutting.

No, mostly grass, some clover mixed in.I think the flail just damages the grass that much...

I was just watching the local weather guesser and they are predicting almost zero moisture through Feb. With maybe another year of draught, will this influence the way you cut hay this spring?

Probably not for me. If it's as dry next summer..I onl reall got one cutting. Cut the second time just to get the weeds.

By the way animal, I posted to you on your question regarding a ledger adjusting too on implement alley. My e-mail should be open on this thread.

I agree that cutting too close no matter which type cutter(sickle or disc) severely affects regrowth. I also agree that duller disc blades are worse on plant stalks than dull sickle sections. I have observed that in cutting a Sudan/hay grazer type crop with a disc cutter will cause crop plant population lose because of shattering of the stubble allowing some of it to dry out and not regrow. This was very evident in drier years.
