The guy that has been cutting my hay retired. So I have to do it all myself.

I have been told by a few that the disk mowers can kick up rocks that break tractor windows.

I have a Kubota M7040 Cab tractor and a Vermeer M6040 disk mower.

Is this something I should be concerned about?

I did find 2 products that would help prevent this.

Thanks

Stan

In 30 years with a discbine have not broke a window. However, have kicked up one stone while lifting the mower over woodchuck hole and shattered it against the window. Surprised window didn't break. Hit just above the seat centered where my neck probably was.

Keep the skirts down and you shouldn't have any problems.

I'll be the odd man out here that has a discbine with fairly new skirts and leaves plenty of stubble when mowing and last summer by some fluke of events I picked a stone up while turning and swinging on the headland. That rock came forward and took out a cab roof light in dramatic fashion (and cracked the fiberglass roof). Had it been 4" lower the back window would have surely been a goner.

Not much you can do unless somebody makes a thick lexan window for your tractor.
