    Default New Disc Mower delivered Friday

    I have been looking for a new disc mower & I had narrowed it down to a Vermeer TM850 or a Kuhn GMD 3150TL. I chose the Kuhn based on price & recommendations from others that use them. Here are some pics & I'm ready to try it out soon but it will probably at least 6-8 weeks before I have any hay ready to cut..

    I'm hoping this one will last a long time. The best part will be hooking it up to the tractor.

    the pull type mowers are $4000 to $8000 or more than the mower/caddy setup.

    This mower was about the same price as buying the 3pt hitch mower + caddy & this set up will turn a lot shorter than the caddy. I talked to a couple of people that own the caddy & they said they would buy the pull type next time.

    I agree that the price difference between a PT hay cutter & 3 pt model on a caddy will be close. I can't see how the PT will turn sharper than the 3 pt on a caddy. If I time my 3 pt on a caddy correctly I can turn a 90 degree corner and leave very little to no hay standing
