Thanks to all for input. Guess I will check it out more.

I'm not worried about fixing it as long as parts are available and it is a dependable machine when done.

Kubota owns the Vicon disc mower now. Probably get anything you need through a Kubota dealership for a Vicon.

We have a Vicon CM240 disc mower, built around 1990. Most everything is still available for it. They are really good mowers, in my opinion. Have three blades per disc. You may have to open up the cutter bar case to replace that bearing. A lot of bolts! We mow about 40 acres per year with it. Ours will mow a little more than 3 acres per hour. That is attached to a Massey Ferguson 253, mowing in 4th gear(low range). CM240=2.4 meters= about 8 foot cut.

I have one and it is one of the most trouble free items on the farm. I only mow about 40 acres a year with it and it is shed kept. Other then blades I have not spent one penny on it in the last 15 yrs I've owned it.

Try Tarver sales in Louisiana. They distributed Fella mowers, older model Fellas were vicons with different paint.

You and me both. I bought a two year old New Holland discbine that had been traded in on a larger center pivot model. A bearing went out the first time I used it,then when they fixed it,they must have missed some shrapnel because it tore up the whole cutterbar. Then I bought a Vicon at an auction. The first time I ran that,I ended up with little pieces of rubber all over the ground off the conditioning rolls until it tore off enough for the hay to start wrapping on them. That one was a total waste of money. I bought a brand new Kuhn,no trouble with that one.
