30 Foot John Deere Disc Head

A few years back (maybe 10 to15?) I remember seeing in the Furrow where John Deere had just came out with a 30 foot "discbine" head that went on the front of their chopper - it just laid out 3 windrows and had no means of conditioning.


Did they actually make such a thing? I can't seem to find any mention of it anywhere nowadays.


Just wondering as I was thinking about it as I was swathing the other day.

This one?

Looks like it feeds it all directly into the chopper. Pretty sure the Deere one laid it in 3 separate windrows.

Claas made a triple mower set up that you hooked up to that laid the hay out then you put your pick up head back on to chop. Could never see the desire to put extra hours on a high dollar machine

There are about 2000 predecessors to this model in use now.

I’ve been shopping around for a set of triple mowers for couple years and doing a ton of research, I’m down to claas , krone or Pottinger . I’m leaning towards Pottinger as there rep over in Europe is outstanding . The dealer in mb I don’t much trust but I talked to the sk dealer at agribition and seemed to really know the machine from service stand point not sales I like that .

I have V10 Pottinger and it has been excellent, would recommend. Pottinger Canada Rep is excellent too. They wanted to come out to the farm when I started using for the first time (2017) to make sure all was good but they did the setup at the dealership well (had my tractor for that, and rep was on hand during dealer prep) and I didnít think it was necessary and I had no problems on my own. Only issue was tractor was too small for it and I had to buy a larger tractor. Takes a lot of hp in my area. I run the roller conditioners.

What size tractor you running new farmer ? What part of Canada are you in? The guy at agribition said he’d like it see 250hp on a large frame tractor . What difference in v10 vs a10’s he didn’t even mention the v10’s to me.

Looks like the A10 replaced the V10, not sure all the changes, but I am sure they are all awesome. My V10 is a 2017. I have the roller conditioners. I am in the Peace. I had it on a 230 pto hp tractor, now I am on a 290 pto hp tractor. It would run at 100% engine power and it would overheat in short time and go into Ďlimp modeí and restrict the speed, was really frustrating. Cooling system was too small, in that tractor design (New Holland T7.270). I installed a reversible fan the next year thinking the radiators were getting plugged from all the clippings (which it does) and it didnít help the particular problem, so that was an expensive addition. We only get one cut here and when we cut in July the hay can be 3-4í high, so it is heavy going. I speed right along now (T7.315) if you arenít careful you will lay more down than you can dry and bale before your weather window ends.

What made you pick rubber roll over the tine? I was leaning toward there fixed rubber block mounted tine . Can you maintain 10 mph well cutting ?
