    I’ve got a M8040 Vermeer mower and I’m having issues with the hex shaft breaking. It’s a 2 piece shaft and I’ve replaced it 2 separate times this season and the last time was today 8-23. I’ve maybe mowed 10 acres and it’s broke again. I’m using a 4ish foot breaker bar to tighten the big nut and...

    Hi all, I just received my (new) Vermeer TM610 hay mower. Everything about it is working excellently, except that I'm having an issue with an un-mowed strip at times (inconsistently, though often the same spot in the field), seemingly no matter how much I overlap. It happens on the left-hand...

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience working on a 605K Vermeer. We have put new belts on the baler and cannot get the belts to tighten up. We have put air in the air bags, adjusted the tense on the baler but no luck. The belts are cut to length from the factory so it shouldn’t be a...

    I recently purchased a used Vermeer Rebel 5400 round baler and have a question regarding the twine arms. When I retract the twine arms and then run them back out, the twine in one or both twine arms retracts back inside the tubes. As I've been going through and servicing I've replaced the...

    Curious if anyone has had any experience with one of these rakes. Pros/Cons? My entire fleet of equipment is Vermeer due to dealer support and being well built. I currently am running a Vermeer R23 bar rake. This rake is amazing, though it just doesn't work the best for my odd shaped fields. I...

    I'm brand new to the group and am in need of help. I have a new Vermeer M7040 disc mower. It plugs up on the end of the bar in tangled alfalfa just going a certain direction. It will accumulate on the end until I raise it up to dump it. Dealer said I needed the wheel on the wheel that acts...

    I had to change out a belt roller and had to bleed off the pressure on the density cylinders in order to remove the cylinder pins. Now after the new roller was installed I do not get any pressure to the pressure control valve. I have loosened all of the JIC fittings at both cylinders and open...

    I,m looking to replace my New Holland 790 net-wrap baler with a new Vermeer. The New Holland could bale at speed upwards of 10 mph with bales remaining uniform. I find the NH baler too light- the Vermeer looks to be a heavier baler. Just wondering how others' experiences with the Vermeer have...

    I am thinking about getting a new wheel rake. I currently have a New Holland 57 pto driven rolabar rake and I love it. I started doing over half of my rolls in haylage last year and the rake never has a problem making a windrow no matter how thick. The only issue is I am only getting 8.5 feet...

    Does anyone have any first hand experience with the newer vermeer tedders with the hook tines? I'm looking for a new 6 basket tedder and am considering the vermeer TE250. Do the hook tines really work any better than the other brands out there? Do they really dry the hay any faster? I'd be...

    Looking at for a new rake, what do you guys prefer wheel or rotary? It will be ran in corn stalks mostly, and some hay. ALso do those plastic rings on wheel rakes work? ***Side note; most fields won't have chopped stalks thanks
