Hi guys Iím in ohio here and sold my old 7 foot haybine, Iím in the market for 7-9 foot disc mower. I see lots of them for sale but wonder about parts availability? Iíve heard the old long/farm trac can be iffy on parts. What about pellgro, fort farm Maxx, enrossi, etc. Iíd like to be able to get parts for years to come and not just a cheap throw away mower.
Thanks

Another consideration when using a disc mower is that it gives you the capability to get double the amount of hay rained on as you ever have before.

4010, I will try to read between the lines as you omitted maybe the most important part of your question - and that is what is your budget? I will try to read between the lines. You got rid of your old 7 foot haybine. From that comment and the fact that you mention a lot of off brand machines, I have to conclude your budget is not all that high. I dont see you writing a check for a good Krone, Vermeer, or Kuhn disc mower as other posters have mentioned. Watch out for a New Idea disc mower, they are reasonable and parts are available.

Yea I may consider a good used one but 10-12,000 for a nh Vermeer or Kuhn wonít be happening, I mow 30 acres of hay a year. Thereís just so many brands of mowers out there anymore itís hard to decide good or bad but my main concern is parts availability on the cheaper ones.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

If disc mowers are all ""copies of Kuhn"" as you state please explain this?
Kuhn/JD/Krone/Kubota cutter bar internally where gears are located is a common housing IE open for oil to flow from one end to other end of cutter bar & cutter bar oil level is checked at one location.
New Holland & Vermeer plus probably some other cutters have individual segments on cutter bar that require oil(lubricant) to be checked at each segment.

Thanks,Jim

Look into drum mowers.

I am on my second drum. Bought because every used disc had brazed cracks all over the bottom with oil leaking out and too many parts. Cuts grasses great, leaving about a 1" stubble on tough stalks and 2" on small stemmed grasses which is ok for them.

Swore I'd never do it again, but bought a haybine (Ford 538) this year to do my SS hay crop. Need 4" stubble for a decent regrowth and no disc or drum I've seen can give you that. Did the first cutting last week and regrowth is fantastic, as was the cut.

Kubota has three blades, they bought Vicon so that's likely where they got it.

Krone is the best I've seen so far! My two cents!

Doesnít one company make a 3 blade turtle.

One makes separate segments that bolt together under each turtle and driven by shafts.

One company makes a large common oil pan under the whole cutters and gear drives the turtles from one common pan.

The various companies buy from these three, and relabel the machines as Ďtheirsí.

I think NH and NI/Agco swapped manufacturers a while back, itís pretty funny listening to the dealers promoting their design as better, when a few years before the other design was better when that is what they sold then.....

Enorossi makes mowers for Farm King (Buhler-Allied)
Sitrex makes mowers for New Holland.
Most of these are large Italian companies with US importers /re branding.
