I'm considering buying a 3pt mounted cutter. I have a Krone EC 3200 10' trailed. It was a little rough when I bought it, and after two seasons and about 1000 bales, it's even rougher now. I have very rough fields, hidden obstacles, ditches, creeks, a Motocross track full of berms (jumps are easy to see and avoid, it's the 1' tall berms in 4' tall grass that usually get me). My last cut, I decided to try to cut the tall weeds next to a ditch that didn't get cut earlier in the year on the first cut. I know, that's what my Batwing cutter is for. Bad mistake, apparently a good size tree floated up from the spring flood, and I didn't see it. By the time all said and done, I pretty much broke the cutter in 1/2. I've almost got it fixed now, lots of welding, some extra braces and new and/or straightened shafts. But I'm wondering if a mounted unit would be better at breaking back when I hit things. I've never used one. I'm considering a Krone, just because I already have blades and extras, and the bar seems really robust and I like the idea of no belts. But I'd consider any of them, and the Deere/Kuhn and Kubota ones seem to operate at greater angles which might be good for me. So, do mounted or trailed hold up better for a equipment abuser?I'm hoping to test my cutter this weekend, I went to run it last weekend and discovered the PTO shaft is slightly twisted and will not extend, even after chaining it to a tree and trying to pull it apart with a 100 HP CTL.
