I have been through a mower and conditioner setup, two sickle bar mower conditioners, and a disc-bine. IMHO, the discbine is the best setup yet.As for damage to the hay, we used to go through 3-4 knifebars per year, and now, 2 sets of discbine blades. Changing the blades is much easier, safer, and faster than a knife bar. My machine was set at the middle height setting from the factory, but is now set at the higher height setting, not for stone damage, but grass root clipping. Research has shown that leaving 3-4" of growth helps the crop recover faster for the next cutting. We were cutting close to the crowns on the orchard grass and alfalfa, and the stands and plants were mot recovering as fast. Since changing, recovery time has been shortened by at least a week. My cutting schedule is 4-5 times for alfalfa and 2-3 times for orchard grasseds and mixed hays. Currently I do about 150 acres fo hay.
