Re: 4990
It looks like Self-propelled mowers like this with relatively "little" working wide are common in north america. It´s about 15 foot right?
Couldn´t a mower like this be handled by a farm tractor?
In Germany self propelled mowers usually mow ca. 9 metres wide with conditioners and there are tractor-mounted combinations avaiable up to 12 metres.

Re: 4990
Einachser, yes, these are fairly common on larger farms for two reasons. A large machine such as a Krone or Claas will cost well over 150,000usd and these machines are fairly inexpensive to buy used. A used one of these costs less then a used discbine and tractor to pull it with, and with these, you can cut haty pretty much as fast as you can drive it.

Yeah, but you could use a tractor you already have, that´s what I was thinking. I guess you´re right, if you have to buy the tractor the self propelled machine is cheaper.

We have a 4990 like the one in the picture. We love mowing hay with it. My retired dad just love to run it.

Re: 4990
Einachser, my uncle wants to buy it so he can cut his own hay, and do some hay cutting for the neighbors as well. I think he is also looking at investing in a large square baler too. We only cut about 150 acres of hay 3-4 times a year, but when you only have two tractors that forage harvestor and the other on a slurry tank, that is where something like this would be nice to have.
