Has anyone been using using a large swather on the light grass hay crops this year? There is a lot of that around here this year. In dryer years in the past I used a 30 foot swather and thought it was quite efficient when It would actually cut well, unfortunately I think I chose a poor brand of machine and more or less wore it out quickly and sold it.
Right now I have the Big M set for straight mowing and conditioning and we are V raking everything. I really should locate a couple of 9 wheel side delivery rakes and hook them to our ancient two rake hitch and make some 80 to 100 foot windrows again.
But if anyone is having good success with something like the current Macdons with a grain Draper header, that would be interesting.
It’s funny how someone would want go back and try to solve the same old problem again.
We’ll probably scare up enough hay here but it's going to require cutting more acres than usual lately, and I’m lazier than ever, especially when it comes to fixing that worn out Big M in the heat. Should have got two of them, just to be fixing, so I wouldn’t have time to bugger either one of them up.
Same as dirt bikes!
