Kind of neat. Would only take a couple of passes for my yard = no seat time!

I would have to drive it to town every week and circle the city hall to make it head the other way. It is a small town . lol

Neat!  I wonder what you cut with that...? (I LOVE the words "V-tine conditioner", just a little something to throw into a conversation when it rolls around to your machine.:D)

Well if you have a lot of hay to put up. That machine would cut it, crimp it(to speed drying) and lay it out in swaths to bale in one operation. Back in the dark ages, when they first started building them they were not nearly that big. The old ones are small enough no farmer wants the little ones and they don.t sell for much at all. I could possibly justify one of those on my acreage to cut mulch?

The farmer that I help out uses 1 of those. He cuts 4 to 5 crops off of about 1200 acres of alfalfa. Cuts had about 15 miles per hour.

How does a "disc cutter" work?  I assume "discs" have sharp edges... or something?  Please help me, I want to be more "country".:D
