Any dealer network, especially in the central Michigan area, or is the only outlet Haytools.com down in Kentucky?

I don't know Ray. You might want to go to Robinsons and talk to them about a Kuhn. Everybody and their brother sells them around here. Robinson would be the closest for you.

Thanks, Randy, but I like the looks of the CCM better... Looks like better drive-train. Belt drive will take up a lot of shock, hopefully. And on this place, with all the ground mole hills and rocks cropping up, not to mention woodchuck holes....

Can anyone with real world experience tell me how well these work compared to a haybine? I'm sure they cut, but what about dry down time? Do you still need a conditioner?

Bret in grass hay they work fine. If you have alfalfa or clover then they will dry slower. If you do not have much clover or alfalfa then this style and a cheaper tedder is a good combination.

Drum mowers are quite popular in europe too in areas of grass hay. I've never seen one newer than about 1975 in our area though.

Bret, I have been running a CCM185 (I think, never was good at
remembrin numbers, LOL) for the last 5-6 seasons. I only cut
waterways, pasture fields, and hills, that our tenant farmer does
not want to do. I also once cut one of his fields, when he had to
have emergency surgery, and couldn't cut one of his fields. So I
have cut both unfertilized, and fertilized fields. The CCM mower,
in Orchardgrass, and timothy, and fescue, can start cutting
earlier than a NH haybine, and dries down a little earlier than the
haybine. The only crop I have cut with it, that needs
conditioning, is Sorghum/sudax hybrid. That stuff takes 5 days
to dry down, conditioned, and more than a week un-
conditioned!


I generally cut one day, leave the crop sit a day, then rake the
next day. If it is heavy hay, I ted right after cutting. Sometimes,
in heavy hay, you have to wait another day, and roll the windrow
over, before baling.

The CCM cutter has only 2 cutting heads, which Counter rotate,
meaning they throw a mini windrow up as they cut, in the center
of the pass. They have 6 reversible cutter knives, a lot like disc
mower blades, a complete blade change takes about 15 minutes,
Some of the old timers say they cut too short, but you have to
keep alert, as these mowers are heavy, they "walk" the toplink
adjustment back, extending the link. They don't take much HP
to run, but are pretty heavy. I counterweight the opposite wheel,
of my ALLIS D-12, and have about 300 lbs weight in the front.
Even so, a sack of sugar will lift up the front wheels, if placed on
the back of the mower, in transport position!

I love my CCM-190. I agree with DiyDave on drying, same here. Cut one day, dry next, bale next afternoon in summer. A day or two longer in early spring or late summer. All grass hay. Quality is same as my old haybine, but can cut a field 2.5 times faster even with the narrower cut.

As to buying from HayDr, was simple easy and he shipped it by truck from eastern Ky to So Ill for $250. Brought it right to the farm and offloaded it with my loader. He has negotiated rates with trucking firms.

It is heavy. I have a 65hp JD2550 ag loader tractor with calcium in the tires. Weights 9000 lbs. When the mower is in transport, it can bounce the front end a bit, even with the loader out front. During cutting operations, pulls nice and quite maneuverable. I would not run this mower on anything less than 5000 lbs. I use the cat 2 pins.

John
