New Discbine Cutting Silage.
The following pictures are from earlier this summer. This is our John Deere 7630 and our new Hesston(MF) hydroswing (center pivot) discbine.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
Unfortunately it's only a 12 foot unit. Hope to be getting a 15 foot unit for next year. It has the steel on steel roller conditioners.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
I have my mirrors set up so I can watch either of the edges without having to turn around in the seat. Even with the hydroswing (center pivot) I can go for entire days without needing to turn around. Rarely do I leave strips.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
I was cutting at speeds up to 27.7kph (18mph) with this combination. Mostly averaging 15mph though.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
The crop was harvested late as you can see, as a result of the baler roller-over.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
Nothing serious, just a ruptured hydraulic lift cylinder. You could still cut with it, just not raise for the headlands or transport. Just I cut a couple more passes with it to finish up the 1/3 of the field for that day.

My mom raking 24 feet together with the 7710 & 12 wheel H&S v-rake.
We did this field in 3 parts to help ensure even moisture content.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
This was at a different field.
This the the lower area of the 80 acre / 32.4 hectare field, seeded into grass not alfalfa.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
Laid the swath out to 8 feet. Unfortunately this meant driving on the cut crop. I managed to sneak in between the windrow and the uncut crop, in order to avoid running two tracks down it.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
It worked quite well driving off to the one side, the narrow tires on the 716 just fit, and there wasn't a noticeable effect from the other tires.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
I took the loader off the 716 before I started cutting the last field of hay. Afterwards I also used the 716 to rake as well.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
This was only a small field, about 15 hectare, with a low spot in it with about 5 hectares of this tall stuff.

Re: New Discbine Cutting Silage.
There's a lot of lights on this combination. Some aren't showing up, you should see all the reflectors light up when there's a vehicle behind it!


Questions and comments are as welcome as ever.
