    I have a t 165 ccm drum mower, I run it with a 56 engine hp john deere tractor and can mowas fast as you can drive through the field actually faster. The only problem with mine is that it's very heavy, as it doesn't have a hydraulic swing, I have gotten myself stuck in between the tir and mower, it doesn't feel to great, other than that that's the only thing I don't like about it.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought the Carter and Carter Machinery 135 mower... I'm glad I did.... It cuts great.... Easy on the NAA..... My alfalfa dried in 4 days and ready to bale.... The folks at CCM were absolutely great to deal with... No hassle, ordered and delivered in 10 days to Washington.... The mower folds easily for transport and storage... If you have small acreage and need a mower, I can highly recommend CCM Mowers.....

    I have a CCM 165 mower on a Mahindra 8560. mows great. any kind of rocks will eat up blades (I always manage to find 1 or 2). had it 5 years now, and I mow about 45 acres twice a year. only thing I don't like is... there is no way to grease shaft between pto shaft and the drive belts. bearings are sealed and now need replaced.

    I just looked at my mower...... I'll be dipped... same here..... Let us know if the bearings are something that can be bought at a local bearing dealer and maybe the numbers on the bearings and related parts...

    NAPA has always come through for me when I need bearings for the old tractors and implements that I collect. Sometimes I get the exact part. Other times it's a compatible substitute.

    Hope your mower doesn't start making funny noises anytime soon

    Good luck.

    I have a SFI 2555 (135) mower and my only complaint, really is high blade wear. After talking to SFI (very good response by the way) they gave me the information I needed to add 1" of spacers to the bottom drag plate. I've got to get some longer bolts today at the bolt store. I'll post back when I mow again with results in a few weeks. bjr

    I tilt my mower, using the top link, so the leading edge is up about 2" above the soil... that usually misses the rocks.... Of course I do a tour after the first cutting and pick rocks that have heaved from the frost during the winter.... Seems like a lot of work but saves on the equipment.... I also pick rocks when using the wheel rake if I hear or seem them....
    Does anyone know if I will ever run out of rocks to pick ???
