If you don't need to match colors, forget the John Deere and get a New Holland. I fought with a JD 31 for years, it finally blew up, I got a NH 404 and never looked back.
The JD always worked well on carefully and cleanly mowed material. If there was anything laid wider than about six feet, it would pull it in sideways at the end of the roll, along with material from the next swath, and then you were standing there slashing and swearing and pulling until you got the rolls cleared, and it might do it again in the next ten feet or not at all.
I did like the fact that the JD had a slip clutch, and toggle locks on the roll springs, instead of shear pins and hand cranks, like the NH. The NH also had the rubber roll on the bottom, and it didn't seem like you had to run it as close to the ground to pick up all the hay. It sure would smoke and stink, though, when you dragged it over a rock.
