That's pretty incredible! Seems like an economical way of cutting hay.

Cool looking machine, but that field better now have any rocks or other debris in it.

Without seeing how this mower deals with sticks and rocks it's hard to say how practical it is. Looks impressive from the videos and could be very useful on farms with limited haying equipment.

These machine are from Europe, where the 2 wheeled tractor is still king of the high ground. If you look around there sites they have a complete line of stuff for walking tractors, including round balers and powered hay rakes. Im looking at there mini combines now.

Maynard, those really chop and throw the grass/weeds out. Still trying to figure out how they got the deck to turn backwards and it seems to be spinning faster to spit it out like that.

Here is one more video explaining the Greenfield Mower,and the mower deck and blade system. It appears to be like a rotory cutter ( bush hog type ).

It's interesting that they use a belt/clutch system and compare it to hydro. It seems to work well and is much simpler that hydro. You would not have hydraulic lift but the mower decks are only 34" so probably not that heavy. It's interesting to see how their mowers have evolved differently than those in North America. Thanks for the videos Maynard.

So how long would the wheelbase have to be for them to make a 72" cut like my John Deere F935? :bigrofl: A great looking mower for a small area to be mowed, but I'll keep my triple blades. If you look close at the video, the very tall grass is not mowed well at all, and in a couple days, many of the uncut/topped tall weeds will start standing back up. If you plan to cut such stuff, best to get a true bush hog rotary & leave the small rider to the normal yard. These little tractors do an amazing job for what they are, but should not be bought as a substitute for a true bush hog.
The drive system sure is interesting.
