Discbine + windows

Anybody come up with any good window armour? Took another side window out of a jd 7630 cutting hay. They arent getting any cheaper to replace.

I made a screen that hangs off the back of the tractor and overhangs to the right but some rocks seem to be getting around it. After it broke I quickly cut out a chunk of plywood to mount to the side. Figuring if that it stopped everything id get some plexiglass and cut it out the same. But I had a few little ones hitting the window above it yet. So its not going to work.

Trying to come up with some solution to protect the side window as well. Lets See what inventions everyones come up with.

I bent some grinder screens and wrapped completely around much like you have, but make it curve around the cab just above the tire and bolted a support arm to the fender. But my tractor wasnt that nice so I didnt mind the holes in the fender.

I'm curious the difference in setups and ground thats causing you the issues. We run a JD 835 Moco on a 3140 open 2wd, without issue to operator, last year it was pulled with a JD 7700 (was way wet out) without issue. its also spent a little time behind a 6330 Prem Cab no issues.

Farm down the road runs a 946 Moco on a 6175M trouble free.

makes me wonder if the drapes are to thin or short or something, causing them to get flipped out of the way or passed by

3140 95hp on the shaft pulls at ~6mph (2/2, 2/3 is to much)
7700 not tested, pulls at 8 no problem
6330 not tested, pulls c/4, d/1 no issue (c/4 is nicer for headlands though)

Drive lots of little things, one day i will get to play with big toys.

Maybe a water or even concrete filled land roller?

The expensive way, around $500 plus shipping, a rock block. Mounts on the front of your discbine. I've got one on my 955, doesn't stop all the rocks, but slows them down to were they just ping off the tire or something lower than your windows. The cheap way, I did this to my 955 before I found out someone made a kit. Now mind you, it will make your hayfield look like you've got a sickel machine with Sh*tty sections but I never had a rock hit me. Take baler belting, bolt it onto the existing rubber shield curtain whatever you wanna call it. Anyways, bolt the belting on the bottom 2"s of the curtain, then about 3/4 the way up or better on your baler belting. From and back. To add weight to it. Next, bolt anther belt to the side of the machine and the middle curtain midway up the curtains so that they can only come out about a foot. It sounds like a lot of screwing around but works. If you'd like the guys number that builds the rock block kit from SD, message me and I'll give you his number. Wouldn't cut hay without one. Neighbor thought that 500 was too much money, he is laying in hospital now. Picked up an old rake tooth. Back window, into his rib, and came out the front window... Makes you think twice about an open station tractor on one of these
