    Default Drum vs Disc cutter?.... Lou


    I m downsizing most of my equipment this year also I have written most of it off.. taxes,, I been using Kuhn or krone disc cutters 10',7' for the past few years before that used sickle cutters mostly Ford,, but I m thinking about going with a drum cutter,, 6ft, Here is the question has anyone used a drum cutter and what did you like or didnt like? I can buy two drum for the price of one 7ft Kuhn.. thanks Lou

    I have a 6ft one, vermeer by PZ. It is very rugged, only gripe is the weight and transport position.
