Im looking for a used swing tongue discbine of some sort.  It will mainly be a back up machine but could potentially see a fair amount of acres.  All grass, maybe some cane hays as well.  We've only had self propel machines so I'm not to familiar with pull types.  We have a new holland discbine that is decent in grass hay but not the best in light hay.  I'd like to keep it under 15k if possible.  16' wide would be preferred but it looks like anything in my price range would be 13' and under.  New holland, case, john deere dealers all fairly close.  I'd appreciate any thoughts on a reliable machine. Thanks

I personally have never ran a discbine but I've never heard anything bad with John Deere. I would recommend looking for a machine with good dealer support and one that doesn't look too beat up.

Do you need the conditioner rollers? My grass hay drys in a day in good weather. It would increase your buying power if you can do without the conditioner rollers.

One thing about the JD, is that get's really spendy quickly if you have to get into the cutter bar, with all those idler and drive gears.  I have one that's run a little warm for the last couple years on one gear...I'd like to upgrade to a Vermeer before it does.

We have been running NH 1431 for a few years now.  Really like it.  Superior to the Hesston 1340 we were running.

 

Easy to grease.  Ease to adjust.  We normally run through about 250 acres a year. Flip blades once a year or so and replace when they get worn.
