Would´t it be much cheaper to use front-attached- and
pull-type-mowers?

Re: JD 4890
i don't know i guess it depends on how many acres you do the
self proppeled are faster than pull type on the farm i work
at we have a Claas 820 with a 27' mower on it so it is alot
faster than any pull type.

Re: JD 4890
Smaller fields I belive lead to the use of these. With the
front and rear mount mowers you loose the manuverability you
have with these.

Re: JD 4890
self propelled machines are not cheaper than pull type,
unless you also have to buy a tractor. Self propelled
machines do alot of work, but when it breaks down your done,
on a pull type you can just switch to a different tractor.
But deere makes some nice mowers, I got a their 956 14.5ft
hydro swing mover, best mover I have ever used

Re: JD 4890
Steve, I run a 956 too.I agree it's an excellent mower. How
fast do you run I can usually run between 15 and 17mph on
even our best hay, but that's pulling with an 8410. Just
curious.

Re: JD 4890
Another use for these traction units is to attach a larger
header for laying a swath. Honeybee and Macdon make
adapters for their headers, but for some stupid reason JD
didn't make their large draper headers compatable yet. I
hope that it is in the works though. The 4890 with a 936
draper header would be an excellent machine.
